Hey, im having an error with installing phpBB. I got everything uploaded to the server, created a database and everything, filled out all the information as I think is correct. One problem though. When I click the start install button, it says

''phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database''

Please help

Greetings,

Keep in mind that the Database username and database name are the same. :D So it would be ... username_whatever ... you created this in your Control Panel. Remember that you must set the Database host to your server, not localhost. :wink:
