Ok, I’ve gone through approximately a jillion postings about this problem, and tried several solutions, but I still donno what I’m doing wrong. Trying to install WordPress, getting the following error:
We’re having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
Are you sure it exists?
Your database name is currently specified as mizkit_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?
I’m sure it exists; if I go to my control panel I see it there, all existy-like. My other databases are named mizkit_databasename, so I’m confident I’ve got the name right. I’m willing to accept that I can’t remember my own password, but there’s no indication in this message that it’s the password I’ve got wrong, so I don’t *think* that’s it. Am I wrong? Help! So confused!
I’ve checked my phpMyAdmin (which I’d never seen before!) and it claims there is indeed a mizkit_wordpress database, which has no tables in it. That doesn’t mean a darn thing to me, but I saw it come up in other questions about this same problem, so I thought I’d mention it. 🙂
Any insights would be appreciated!
