installation help

Thanks so much neilo, your awsome..i really appreciate your help..i do happen to have wampserver set up on my pc i just never used it and did not use that to handle my files..
you also asked me to post my site.., you had also mentioned to uninstall reinstall power store which i did twice.. so im gonna follow your steps and keep my fingers crossed. i just have a few questions to be clear on my exact procedures
1. should i dump my sql table and reload that also?
2. on my server..all i have to do is delete my files under public_html/ and reload the new ones after reinstall?
3. then delete my site in dreamweaver and define it again and drop all files in file window again, and edit wa_global.php, index.php, localhost.php. then upload to server again.
4. did my localhost.php input look like i put in the correct information/posted below

$hostname_localhost = "localhost";
$database_localhost = "spotxxx_spotxxxxxx"; this was the at top under current databases
$username_localhost = "spotxxx_spxxx";
$password_localhost = "xxxxxxxxxxxx";

this was the content inside mysql maintenence window.

Connection Strings
Perl $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:spotxxxx_spotxxxxxx:localhost" ,
"spotxxxx_spoxxxxx","<PASSWORD HERE>");
PHP $dbh=mysql_connect ("localhost", "spotxxxx_spoxxxx",
"<PASSWORD HERE>") or die('Cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db ("spotgrab_spotgrabber");

also my wa_global.php, does that look like its ok..

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "Spot Grabber" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Address = "8899 University Center Ln Suite 330";
$WAGLOBAL_City = "San Diego";
$WAGLOBAL_State = "CA";
$WAGLOBAL_Zip = "92122";
$WAGLOBAL_Country = "US";
$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "spotgrabber";
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/";

i know i asked a lot of questions, sorry for my nubeness. so ill wait for your response to be sure i am taking the correct steps again. thanks again neilo
