[resolved] Can’t select database (3 posts)

    I am getting the famous "Can’t select database" on a new installation.

    I have read many many posts in this forum.. but still can't find my error.

    I "think" the problem my be the permissions, but I can not find anywhere to look at or change those.

    Can someone point me there.. or to some other clues?

    Thanks

    Tom

    the error usually means the db name is incorrect in wp-config.php

    After MySQL is installed, is there a default name for the database? If that has been forgotten, can something be types at the command line to verify the database names(s)?
