Problems trying to install
First I had problem realising bbpress was not just a plugin. I dont have to install it in the plugin directory. The installation instructions here did not specify that. It just said “Upload the uncompressed files to your server”. Anyway that is sorted now – I think. I uploaded the bbpress folder and renamed it ‘forums’ to the root of my wordpress installation.
I tried to install. The first step is asking me for database name, user, and password. Is this for my existing wordpress installation? I assumed so and supplied these details but am getting this error msg:
There was a problem connecting to the database you specified.
Please check the settings, then try again.
