    I constantly get the following message. What do I do wrong ??

    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 WordPress 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.
