"Can’t select database" Error (2 posts)

    I belive I have followed the installation instructions correctly but I am still getting this error:

    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 (my database name) 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?

    I am very new to this, so any help would be great. Thanks in advanced
