I have my MAMP_Docs in my Drop Box and can access it on my laptop but am unable to access it on my iMac.
I have checked the preferences and they are identical to what i have n my laptop.
This is the message I am receiving:
We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the MAMP_Docs database.
Are you sure it exists?
Does the user root have permission to use the MAMP_Docs database?
On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_MAMP_Docs. Could that be the problem?
If you don't know how to set up a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.
