Install trouble using Cpanel
I just created a new database on a dedicated server I share, but get the following error when I try to run the install.php file:
We’re having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
Are you sure it exists?
Your database name is currently specified as blogpwr_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?
WordPress Support Forums
I’ve tried it several ways, but get the same error..
My Cpanel shows the following:
and my wp-config.php is here:
/** WordPress’s config file **/
/** http://wordpress.org/ **/
// ** MySQL
settings ** //
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘blogpwr_WordPress’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘blogpwr_bfogle’); // Your MySQL username
‘maxwell’); // …and password
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t
need to change this value
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a
$table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // example: ‘wp_’ or ‘b2’ or ‘mylogin_’
Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
// chosen language
must be installed to wp-includes/languages.
// For example, install de.mo to
wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de’
// to enable German language support.
/* Stop editing */
$server = DB_HOST;
$loginsql = DB_USER;
$base = DB_NAME;
Thanks very much.
