i have a network solutions hosted site and am getting the same old error:
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 ---- database.
at first i tried a MU install but after getting some help i was directed to use a single install (both installs yielded the same error).
i editted the wp-config.php file.
in another post someone posted this really useful code.
a page to test the settings and display any errors:
<in html page>
$link = mysql_connect('205.x...', 'user', 'pass')
or die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
When i run this with the values i believe to be correct (and that i entered in the config file) i get no errors.
To test it out i entered a wrong value and did indeed get erors displayed to the screen.
NS doesnt have CPanel, rather it has its own "database manager". I spent 2 full days on this and have spoken to NS tech support to no avail.
I know this problem has been posted before but the solutions in those threads dont seem to be helping.
Im trying to set this blog up for my friends and we'd be just so damned grateful for some help. ;)
