    Hi, I’m attempting to install bbpress on Windows Server 2003 Ent SP2, IIS6, MySQL 5.1.34 community, PHP 5.2.9-2:

    I have followed this guide to installing & configuring PHP: http://www.peterguy.com/php/install_IIS6.html

    Step 1 – bb-config.php succeeds

    Step 2 – skipping wordpress integration as don’t have this installed

    On clicking Goto Step 3, the installation doesn’t get anywhere and the browser returns:

    “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

    Most likely causes:

    You are not connected to the Internet.

    The website is encountering problems.

    There might be a typing error in the address. “

    Any help please?

    IIS is configured for several websites, each with it’s own ip address allocated. The URL I’m using to configure bbpress is http://newintranet.savethechildren.org.uk/forums/bb-admin/install.php

    The ‘newintranet’ website is allocated ip address 10.1.10.49

    The mysql settings in the bb-config file is as follows:

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘bbpress’);

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘Forum’);

    // the user Forum has been granted all privileges to the bbpress db

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘Forum’);

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    // mysql is installed on the same IIS server listening on ip 10.1.10.53 standard port 3306

    define(‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8′);

    define(‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ‘utf8_general_ci’);
