Support » Installing WordPress » database error, ” Table doesn’t exist”

  • Hi hi!

    Just got a website solely to load up with WordPress. I’ve gone through the install procedure, set up the mysql database, edited wp-config.php, and uploaded everything to my root directory. When I attempt to run the install.php, I get the following error messages:

    ——————————————————–
    WordPress database error: [Table ‘dbXXXXXXXX.wp_options’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = ‘home’ LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘dbXXXXXXXX.wp_options’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = ‘siteurl’ LIMIT 1
    ——————————————————–
    As well as a few others. I’ve done clean reinstalls a couple of times now, making new databases each time. How did I screw up?

    Thanks bunches!
    Kev

    If this is happening each time, check that you have ‘ALL’ priviledges on the database.

    Tanks, I’ll do my best!

    Thanks so much Podz! There was a complex of issues, but between contacting my host regarding an ftp issue and following your advice, my site’s up in its nascent form. On to customizing!

    I’m seeing this issue as well. When I get to step 2, I get several dozen error messages as below:

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘wpdb.wp_options’ doesn’t exist]
    INSERT INTO wp_options (option_name, option_value, option_description, autoload) VALUES (‘siteurl’, ‘http://mydomain.com’, ‘WordPress web address’, ‘yes’)

    The database exists, and the credentials in the wp-config.php file are correct, including case. It’s as if the account doesn’t have the ability to create/populate tables (which I know it does, I can do it manually using the same credentials).

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
