Can't Select Database Error

Recommended Posts

I've just installed WP using Fantastico, and I get the following 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 newcastl_wrdp1 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?

 

If you don't know how to setup a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.

 

The database is there, in both cPanel and phpMyAdmin; the wp-config.php file has the right DB name and 'localhost' as DBHOST.

 

I've deleted the DB and recreated it through cPanel, but still the same error.

 

Any ideas?

I would use Fantastico to remove it and try to install again.

If that does not work then open a ticket.

Nope, that didn't work, either. However, then I tried installing Nucleus via Fantastico and got a similar "Could not select database" error, so I'll open a ticket. Thanks for trying! ;)
