    wtf ?? 11 minutes and i get an answer ??
    thanks man !!

    did like been told, but i get a wordpress 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 v154547 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?

    the database is definitely there, i checked with phpmyadmin.
    whats wrong here, please ?

    Have you double-checked the spelling of the database name in wp-config.php?

    Does the user account defined in wp-config.php have permission to access the specified database?
