Hi there @newwayelegant,

To me it looks like that either your database details are not correct in your wp-config.php file, you need to make sure that you use the correct database name, database username and password.

If this is not the case, then it’s possible that the database is not complete. If this is a new installation what you could do is create a new blank database and let the WordPress install script create the tables from scratch.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
