    when i try to access my wordpress admin page to install it onto my site, it says this

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

    aI dont know what the problem is. Can someone help me please?

  2. You have the DB_NAME defined incorrectly in the wp-config.php file.

    Often times the database isn't just what you named it, it's username_databasename. Check to make sure what your database name is.
