OK I never had mySQL options on the previous site I did so I am learning all about it now. I had no trouble creating the database and setting up coppermine photo gallery, but now I get the 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 tattoo82_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?
If you don't know how to setup a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums."
when I try to do the install. I edited my wp-config.php file with note pad, and put the appropriate database files and username/password just as they displayed in my webhost control panel after creating them... Any suggestions on how to help this lost newbie? I am so sick of lame sites like myspace and live journal to weblog, and now that I am doing my own site this script seems perfect for me... if I can get it up and running lol
