Ugh... i hate fresh installs...
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 socalsci_wrdp2 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?
Some stuff that may help...
