Support » Installing WordPress » Can’t select database

  • This is the errormessage I get: 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.

    What to do? I downloaded the WordPress 3.0.3. from this website: http://nb.wordpress.org/

    -First, double check your wp-config.php file settings for the database name, database username and database password. This is where most errors occur.

    -Then check that you don’t need to change the database host from “localhost” to something else.

    -Check you have actually created a database with the same database name as is in your wp-config.php file.

    -Last, but not least, if all that information is correct your database probably has a problem with it and you may need to contact your web hosting.

    Did you enter the database name where requested as you need to fill
    database name
    database user name
    password
    host

    for the install program to connect to database
