    Error: "Unable to select the specified database"

    I inherited a site from a previous developer, and we are setting up an automatic upload for my client's products. Last night, all of a sudden after uploading a former version of their site and a backup db, I began getting this error message:

    A Database Error Occurred
    Unable to select the specified database: ***_DB
    Filename: /home/***/public_html/libraries/MX/Loader.php
    Line Number: 104

    The "Libraries" directory does not exist, and it does not exist on the old server (their old hosting account is still active). I have been looking online, and it hasn't really gotten me anywhere. Can anyone help me troubleshoot what could be causing this?

    Thank you in advance for your help; your time and attention is very much appreciated.

    What is at (and around) line 104 of the file "Loader.php"?
    The error message should always be the first clue to follow up on.

    That directory does not appear to exist. I looked at their old server (using filezilla), and the directory was not there either. I think the actual file is in a different location.
