switched hosting servers error (3 posts)

    I made a test install to transfer before i moved anything important. I had my hosting provider transfer my accounts for me. All the databases moved and checked out just fine but I get this error:

    Can’t select database

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

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Is lorainco_blog the name of your old database?

    I know on mine, if you've moved servers, and your username is different, the "username_wordpress" would apply. So it would be your new login username_wordpressdatabasename

    Hope that helps.

    hey thanks for replying... yeah it's the same, nothing has changed at all its the account name password, and database name. It makes no sense.
