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?
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.
