Is there a limit to how long the DB name can be? I seem to be having issues with a rather lengthy name (basically WordPress is reporting what I’ve included below), and I can’t see any other issue.
I should mention that I’ve previously gotten WordPress to work on this very same server/configuration using a short DB name, but had to abandon that installation for various reasons. I just thought I would consult with those who may know best, and see if perhaps the name length was the issue.
We’re having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
- Are you sure it exists?
- Your database name is currently specified as pagangeek_grey_council_org_wordpress. Is this correct?
- 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?
Thanks for any help you can provide…
