i have racking my brain over here trying to setup my wordpress.org i am coming over from wordpress.com and have installed mamp to get things going, almost at the finish line and this is the error message i received
"Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /Users/Katriel/Sites/Mavens_table/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1142
Can’t select database
We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the mavens_table database.
Are you sure it exists?
Does the user root have permission to use the mavens_table database?
On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_mavens_table. Could that be the problem?"
What did i do wrong?
