I installed WordPress in January for a new (first) blog on my website. It worked great.
Today, I am trying to create another blog/database on the same server. Each blog has its own folder on the server, the files are kept separate. I am using the exact same download of WordPress that I used the first time.
I CANNOT get past the error when I attempt to run install.php: "Can't select database".
My new database contains two underscores (my_blog_name). Would that be a problem? I hope not because I am held to that by my web host. I have accessed the database and can create tables manually. I have checked the wp-config file incessantly and it is correct.
What is going on!?!?!
