    HI @pickledpepper,

    The response I supplied to you is due to a few reasons. If using the ‘test’ database (built into MySQL) fails, there is a chance that WAMP is not correctly installed or working correctly. I use a different AMP stack called XAMPP for my development, but have used WAMP and the concepts are the same.

    I would suggest reading this post by a reputable blog called wpBegginer:

    http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-on-your-windows-computer-using-wamp/

    Just keep in mind the issue you are having is almost ALWAYS related to the incorrect use of database name, username, and password
