Just trying to install a blog on my website hosted by namecheap. They have fantastico, so i am using that. I pressed auto install filled in all the sections: username. passwords etc (do you put in new ones or use the ones i have with the hosting account?)
It all goes through ok and it gave me the address where the blog would be www.mysite.com/new-blog
However when i go to the wordpress log in page for my blog i cannot log in, additionally if i request the password it doesn't seem to do anything.
When you do the auto install does it automatically create a WP account for you, or should i have done this before hand or something?
I use namecheap to install WP blogs all the time. I always fill in the form to have installation details emailed. The WP password you create can be the same as the hosting password, but I usually create a new/different one.
