Hi. I Uploaded my site on an ftp host which i have used several times and it have worked great.
But when i have uploaded the folder wordpress and all of its content and then tries to start up the install.php on the browser it gives me errors.
<quote>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 maxell.ma.funpic.org database.
* Are you sure it exists?
* Does the user maxell have permission to use the maxell.ma.funpic.org/blogg/ 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?
If you don’t know how to setup a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.</quote>
And this is the options
<?php // ** MySQL settings ** // define('DB_NAME', 'maxell.ma.funpic.org'); // The name of the database define('DB_USER', 'maxell'); // Your MySQL username define('DB_PASSWORD', 'XXXXXX'); // ...and password define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8'); define('DB_COLLATE', ''); // Change SECRET_KEY to a unique phrase. You won't have to remember it later, // so make it long and complicated. You can visit http://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.0/ // to get a secret key generated for you, or just make something up. define('SECRET_KEY', 'ellinormattias'); // Change this to a unique phrase. // You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix $table_prefix = 'wp_'; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please! // Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the // chosen language must be installed to wp-content/languages. // For example, install de.mo to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to 'de' // to enable German language support. define ('WPLANG', ''); /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/'); require_once(ABSPATH.'wp-settings.php'); ?>
Thankful for any help!
This looks suspect:
define('DB_NAME', 'maxell.ma.funpic.org'); // The name of the database
Also, check with your host about the DB_HOST value.
