I have never worked with MySQL before but
i got onto my cPanel
made a user,
made a database with "All" priveliges checked,
made the user able to use the database
except i go to install.php and get this:
<i>We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the volupt2_blog 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?</i>
i've checked the database, it's there, i've tried this as just "blog" for the name of the database.... but the server does say the name of the database is volupt2_blog
