If you're having issues with your server, you should contact the company that hosts your website. They should be able to fix the problem.

check the credentials in the pixelpost.php file. You might have to provide the correct credentials and locations.

hi, thanks, i have modified the credentials in /includes/pixelpost.php,
but why i have do so? there is no guide to do that in the instruction.
But there is no change, pixelpost is still not installing. The install Screen is telling me Table '<dbname>.pixelpost_config' doesn't exist

Normally, when you would have followed the install routine, it will either be created or instructions are provided.

As I discovered the hard way, this line in pixelpost.php (in the includes folder) may not be correct for your DB:
$pixelpost_db_prefix = "pixelpost_"; // table prefix, leave as is unless you want to install multiple blogs on the same database
If your database uses something else besides the 'pixelpost_' prefix, you'll have to change this line the pixelpost.php file to accommodate the prefix used in your DB.
