So it's probably the rookie mistake with all of us virgin WP users, but just having a crack at WP now for the first time. I am configuring the wp-config file in dreamweaver. I have created my database and user, and I get the message:
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 egdesign_myblog database.........
I have changed the username to include (or not) the database name as suggested but makes no diff, the thing won't work. If anyone has helped with this sort of prob, i'd love to hear from you!
