Ecart Database Connection Error

Ecart Database Connection Error

I am testing ecart on my local machine. I am using the online tutorial as a guide. I am using the checkout wizard. I came to the page Store Order Summary in Database. I checked the box Create Using Preset and chose the Default Preset.

I am required to create a connection. So I went to phpmyadmin and created a database. The database was created but neither tables or fields were added as I read on the tutorial that "eCart 5 will automatically create the necessary tables in your database, and bind the appropriate data."

I made a connection to the newly created database, tested it and received the message that connection was successful. I then clicked next and received the message, "Please select a valid connection to continue". What could be the reason for this message when in the step prior, I am told that the connection to the database is successful?
