    Please help me with this problem.

    I am trying to create a MySQL database by using the Webmin interface.
    After clicking on the link to "create database" I am presented with a "New database options" table.
    I then complete the "Database name" field, "Initial table" field, "Field names", "Data types", and "Type widths".
    After doing all of this I click the create button and get the following message:

    "Failed to create database : Missing or invalid database name."

    Would someone tell me what they think that I am doing wrong?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanx,

    Richard
