    Hello, I am trying to install WordPress but it will not install the tables. I am getting these error messages:

    WordPress database error: [CREATE command denied to user: myusername@localhost' for table 'wp_term_taxonomy']

    I have adequate permissions so I am not sure what the problem may be. HELP PLEASE!

    "yourusername" where?
    The site admin username is NOT always the same as the DB username. Does the DB user have ALL privileges in that DB?

    The username listed there is my database username (which is also the username in wp-config.php, not the site admin username.

    And yes it does have full control. I have tried creating a separate username for that DB and giving it full control, and also using the DB administrator username. It does not work either way.

    This is possibly an issue for your hosting provider. Who is the company that does your hosting?
    Are you able to create a database table from the command line, phpmyadmin, or whatever you use to administer the database?

    We use ChristianWebHost. I don't think they use phpmyadmin. I have the table created already.
