When running the install script, 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 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?
When I run mySQL and ask for databases, WordPress does not show up? But nothing in the instructions said I had to start MySQL separately and create a database that way. Doesn’t wordpress do that for me?
- The topic ‘Is it necessary to create the database manually?’ is closed to new replies.
