As a newbie, trying to install the downloaded web apps for Visual Web Developer 2010 and now Web Matrix has been incredibly frustrating. All of the apps ask for passwords, etc. to set up the databases. I have had to go round and round to try and track down
instructions on how to install the apps (as well as ask for help on this forum).
I just downloaded Web Matrix to give it a try and chose to download WordPress along with it. Again, I couldn't install this app because of incorrect passwords or whatever.
Is it at all possible to give hints or maybe inlcude a cheat sheet of some sort that gives a clue as to what we're supposed to enter? To those who have worked with databases it's probably so obvious as to how to set it up that it's not worth explaining.
However, to some of us just starting out it's not at all obvious.
Besides passwords, etc. a hint as to the directory it needs to go would also help.
Anyway, thanks for Visual Web Developer and Web Matrix (and all your help)!
