Re: BBPRESS on my USB webserver!
This problem sounds very familiar. You will have to excuse me, for it’s been a long while since I’ve toyed with bbpress…. BUT i’m pretty sure when I experienced this same problem, it was related to the password. I too had it blank, but for some reason the setup process doesn’t like “blank” passwords.
I would suggest maybe creating a SQL user, with a password, and see if that resolves your problem.
