Hi jonasmckee,

Thanks for posting a question. I'm sorry you're having issues with WordPress. I'm more than happy to help. WordPress uses 'localhost' so you are correct. Have you created the database and user in phpmyadmin? Check to make sure you have the correct database credentials in there and you have assigned a user to the database in phpmyadmin.

You also can use fantastico in cPanel to install wordpress. Look for the blue smiley face icon. I hope this helps! Let us know, if you need further assistance.
