Drupal Installation: 'unable to select database'

apps

#1

I’m trying to get Drupal set up for one of my domains.

I’ve uploaded the files, created the mySQL, and modified
the ‘setttings.php’ file with the correct info.

But when I go to view the website, i get the following:

‘unable to select database’

what does that mean? is that a priviledges problem?
I went to the database using phpMyAdmin - and
I don’t see anything obviously wrong with the database -
it does say “No Privileges” in red letters, right underneath “create new database header”

If it is a priviledges problem, how to a modify them for my database? I’ve been looking through phpMyAdmin and I don’t see how.

Thanks,
Steve
