This is the message I get:
We’re having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
Are you sure it exists?
Your database name is currently specified as ****_****. 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?
Well (unless it’s a philosophical question :p ), yes, I’m sure my database exists. The database name on the error message is correct. I’ve read on another post the
$pipe = mysql_connect ($server, $user, $pass);
thing so I tested it and it works (message: Resource id #2. Something to do with the fact that my host will allow me to have two databases? Although I’ve only created one so far… )
Thanks in advance
