[resolved] Renamed the database, can't connect anymore (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I renamed my database (through phpMyAdmin) from "wordpress" to "testdrive_wordpress" and I edited the wp-config.php file, with the updated database name, now wordpress can't connect anymore to the database,

    I actually assumed that if I would change the config file.. it would work again. It didn't
    So is there anything I can do.. or do I have to re-install the entire wordpress?

    Actually.. It did work but I forgot to change the mysql-user rights on that database.
