Database error – Unable to install

  • I am trying to install bbpress for my website and unfortunately it doesn’t seem to matter what I put in the boxes I get the following error(s). Now I am not trying to integrate it with WordPress just yet so it should be fairly straight forward (however it apparently is not). Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and I have tried disabling all my security features and that didn’t work either. Knowing my luck it is something stupid and it will work like a charm in two seconds but whatever it is, I’m not seeing an immediate solution to the problem.

    Here is the code:
