"Can't select database" (2 posts)

    I'm trying to install the newest version of WordPress via local server for the first time. For the installation, I used Wampserver and all went well almost until the end, when I tried to access the newly created WordPress database on the Internet (I use Firefox) and got the following message:

    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 root 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?

    Could anybody please tell me what could have gone wrong?
    Thank you in advance!

    Try checking all of your database details with your hosts.
