Yes I may well have been logged in at root when the wordpress files were uploaded. I didn't know that could have any effect.

The first time I tried this I was logged in at root and created the database for a user, which all looked correct, but the problem of permissions was there. After finding these permissions limitations, I deleted the database and created a new one with the same name while logged in as that user but the permissions were still all listed as being owned by root until I changed them myself using the FTP program.
