Support » Installing WordPress » Can’t select database

  • Hey guys,

    I’m having trouble getting the installation to begin.

    Here’s what I’ve got in my config file:

    // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘noads_*******_blog ‘);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘noads_*******’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘******’);

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘’);

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

    /** The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt. */
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    I cannot add any new users (its free hosting) and therefore the privilages cannot be modified since my account should have all privilages.

    Please HELP!!!

  • Pleae review Installing WordPress and in particular, the section on creating a database user.

    If you aren’t allowed to create a database user and assign privileges, then ask your host to do that for you.
