Hi there,
Iam trying to install a phpBB into my website although I am having troubles with connecting to the database,
I am guessing I am just filling in the fields wrongly but here they are:

Database Server Hostname / DSN:
Your Database Name:
Database Username:
Database Password:

Anyway, just hoping someone can point me in the right direction to finding the input for these fields, or how to make them (e.g register a username/password etc.)
Thanks!

You didn't give your account name or your host.. So I'm going to use examples..

Host:
If your site for example is "blaat.freehost.com" Then your host would be "freehost.com".

Database name:
Well you have to make a database first, if you didn't do so.
To make one go to "Manage MySQL Databases" in your control panel.
And the name you give is the name you have to fill in here...

Database Username:
Is the same as your database name.

Database password:
The one you gave while making the database.

(You will get an email with all the info after you make the database, if you still can't figure it out)

Edited - Sorry gave some wrong info.
