  • 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 WordPress database.

    Are you sure it exists?
    Does the user dwgoude have permission to use the WordPress database?
    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’ve tried changing the database name by adding the prefix and that didn’t work either. I’m using GoDaddy for hosting. Anyone have suggestions?

    Try contacting GoDaddy. They should be able to tell you the correct database name.
