error selecting database

AHHH, the require once wants a relative path.

/**
* Configuration Include: You should ONLY have to modify this line.
* Leave the rest of this file intact!
*
* Make sure to include the name of the config file,
* i.e. the path should end in .../config.php

You have a whitespace problem, i.e. blanks or empty lines at the end of your config.php.

Hint: Always try searching for the error message first - this has been discussed dozens of times before ...

No, all the paths have to be absolute paths.

Getting rid of the whitespace at the end of the config files fixed it. That should be in the faq if it is so common.

I'll search on my next issue:

It's in the section about common problems in the installation instructions ...
