    "We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the Blog database."

    You have the DB_NAME defined incorrectly in the wp-config.php file.

    Often times the database isn't just what you named it, it's username_databasename. Check to make sure what your database name is.
