Cannot install database on live server


I cannot seem to install my database on my live server.

Tried creating the database first and specifiying a database in the wizard that isnt created.

Error message I get:

" Can’t create database. Please check user permissions or create it manually. "

The user I am creating “user” is the admin user with full permissions - any sugesstions?



If you’ve created it manually then you are not specifying the host/user/pass correctly.

Some DB setup wizards prefix your table and users automatically. Example, you named the db “cart” with username “user”. You may actually need to refer to them as “someprefix_cart” and “someprefix_user”
