MySQL said: Unknown database 'insert username here'
« on: September 23, 2004, 08:42:05 am »

yeah, well i was trying to clean up some of my mySQL databases to make myself use one login, but different database names etc....

but I deleted the coppermine database, when i re-create the database login that was set previously. it still doesn't help.

could someone please help me or tell me how to fix this problem of mine, because it would save me a lot of time reinstalling coppermine and backing up the files.

If the database name, username and/or password have changed, then you need to edit the include/ on the server.

If you deleted the database, but want it back, then you will have to ask your hosts if they can recover it for you, if you don't have a backup.  You should always backup before doing anything manually in the database.
It has been a long time now since I did my little bit here, and have done no coding or any other such stuff since. I'm back to being a noob here
