Database Doesn't exist after it is installed???

I just installed PowerCMS onto a site to start getting the content together while thesite design is in progress...I am getting the following error on the login: Table 'db370171692.pcms2_users' doesn't exist

di you run the install on your local computer or on the remote server?

if you ran the install locally, it would not have created the tables on the remote database.

run this sql script to create the data base tables:

Inserted from Dreamweaver

I followed the directions in the get started guide.
In Dreamweaver, I highlighted text, then selected Add content to CMS, then after uploading all the files I went to my browser and ran the install.

When I set up the CMS in the Broswer, I went back to Dreamweaver to try to insert more fields...

Was I doing this wrong?

I can run the SQL script, but I am not sure how to do that?

I was able to figure out how to run the script, and it seems that I can access users/etc. However, I still cannot connect via Dreamweaver to insert my data...I attached screenshots of what I get...none of my content areas are pulling up, yet all of my pages are.

Am I installing it into the site incorrectly through Dreamweaver?

Thank you for your help!
