    Iam very new as you can tell iam trying to install WordPress but i am having some troubles...It gave me the following message:

    "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 tsanov_wordpressblog 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?"

    I am sure it exist as i have the host control panel open and i can see it!
    and the DB name: tsanov_wordpressblog.
    my username is: tsanov

    Do someone know how to help??

    Does the database user (i.e the one you used when installing wordpress) have access to that database?
