What web-host are you with

Did you install everything that it says on the files you uploaded

did you set the host as YOUR host.... example if you are on farvista.ne and your user is abc, your site would be abc.farvista.net .... for your mysql host you MUST set the host as farvista.ne NOT localhost / abc.farvista.net.... do you understand... this is a common mistake :D

so for ur database server hostname would be: farvista.net
and ur database ursername would be: abc.farbista.net ???
then make up ur own password??

you create it from within the CP, under "Manage MySQL Databases" create your db, name it whatever you want.... then your host would be farvista.net and your db name & password would be abc_db and your password will be what you set :D

No, thats correct. After you host all the files and you try to go to the index or w/e it will take you there. after you install it the forum will show up.

I was looking around and do I have to host the database folder in the mysql?

what website are you going to, because when I go to this site: http://yngwiethps.goldeye.info/phpBB2/ it redirects me to http://yngwiethps.goldeye.info/phpBB2/i ... nstall.php :( which means that it did not install correctly
