Please forgive me if this is a dumb question. I’m new to absolutely all of this, and I’m starting to get frustrated with the process. I recently signed up for a hosting plan with DreamHost and installed WordPress, but whenever I go to create a configuration file, I get this message after filling out the required fields:
We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the chicagofieldguide database.
Are you sure it exists?
Does the user chicagofieldguid have permission to use the chicagofieldguide database?
On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_chicagofieldguide. Could that be the problem?
What am I missing here? I’m entering all of the information exactly as it appears on my control panel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much in advance.
