Install Error – Can not select database

  • 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 unionije_wordpress 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.

    This is the message when I started the install by going: [domain]/wp-admin/install.php

    The thing is, I created the database with the name wordpress – but the system converted into hostusername_wordpress. So was the login-username.
    In the wp-config.php i set everything correct.

    1- Is there anything I can do or..

    2- If i want to istall WP into a different folder, ex. domain/blog/
    Would it be ok just to upload all into blog folder?
