i just signed up today and really dont know much about programming or anything to do with making a website, so when this happened, i found myself totally stuck:
i installed the phpbb software directly to the homepage www.passinglife.com/ just to see how it was and found that it was a forum-like program, which i dont want, so i removed it. so i tried installing the wordpress software and i couldnt install that to the homepage as it said that directory wasn't empty, i can install it to www.passinglife.com/blog or whatever. anyway, i tried using the expression software from ms and it wont go online - when i go to the home page it says :
phpBB : Critical Error
Could not query config information
SQL Error : 1146 Table 'passinglife.phpbb_config' doesn't exist
SELECT * FROM phpbb_config
Line : 215
File : common.php
so im thinking the phpbb thing was removed wrongly, but theres only one way to do it, ive deleted everything, databases, software etc, but i cant upload anything to the homepage now.
also, just so i know, cause its kinda confusing, when uploading with other software, what are the remote website location and ftp directory? is the remote website location the address of my site, or is it directly to do with dreamhost? is the ftp directory my database?
i so dont get this at all.
any help would be appreciated.
