My WordPress blog was working fine this morning. Then when I tried to publish a post I got the following message:
Canâ€™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 bicirc_blog database.
Are you sure it exists?
On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem?
A few minutes later, I was able to get back into the site and had no problem posting or viewing my site. http://www.thebinarycircumstance.com.
Since around 11AM (It's 5:12pm now) I've only gotten that message. Readers have e-mailed me to say they're getting it too.
When I go into phpMyAdmin, it says that I have "no databases." It must have been there this morning because I was posting to it.
My host, Dreamhost, says they can see the database just fine on their screen. I think this has got to be a host problem. Does anybody have any suggestions?
It's been down for six hours now.
