XAMPP, WordPress Error

  1. 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 wordpress database.

    * Are you sure it exists?
    * Does the user root have permission to use the wordpress database?
    * 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?

  2. helps if you use the correct database name sorry

  3. If you come back to this thread, you are using the self-hosted version of wordpress, and that is supported over at http://wordpress.ORG/support/ . These forums are for blogs hosted here at wordpress.COM.
