Installing WordPress

  • This is the error I am getting

    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the wordpress database.

    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the wordpress database.

    Are you sure it exists?
    Does the user blogdigg have permission to use the wordpress database?
    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?

    I’m not sure how to fix this, can someone help me out? Thnx
