[resolved] Can't select database - error (2 posts)

    Today I moved wordpress from one server to another. I followed the steps from:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_to_a_New_Server
    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/move2/
    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/restore/

    Everything went well. I have created a new database, username, password (which are all the same, so I don't need to change my wp_config). And then I imported the backup database in phpMyAdmin. And then I transfered every other file onto my new server.

    HOWEVER, when I try to access my blog, I get 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 preps_wp database.

    ----
    That database exists and with the same name and content because I am looking at it right now.

    What is the problem then? and how can I fix it?

    Thank you in advance.

    I'd check typos, keeping in mind the case-sensitivity of the name.
