I had been using wordpress just fine and without incident for many months until I get an email from my hosting company saying they were changing my database’s IP number. After they did this change, my blog didn’t show up, and I got the wp-config error message. This was not surprising. I went in and edited the the wp-config to reflect the change, and now I am getting a very strange error message. It reads-
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 ericblog database.
• Are you sure it exists?
• 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.
You can see this for yourself at http://www.ericbrown.org/blog
Any ideas what may be causing this???
Thanks so much.
