Re: Installation problem..please help fast

I am not sure what is wrong with my config.php file..

this is a test forum which i am not finalising so i created a new database with new password and new user and updated the config.php file with the details…please tell me what is the copying the file here (pwd, akismet key, email have been removed)



// ** MySQL settings ** //

define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘testforum’); // The name of the database

define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘testforum’); // Your MySQL username

define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ”); // …and password

define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change these last few

define(‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’); // If you are *upgrading*, and your old config.php does

define(‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ”); // not have these two contstants in them, DO NOT define them

// If you are installing for the first time, leave them here

// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.

$bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

// The full URL of your bbPress install

$bb->uri = ‘;;

// What are you going to call me?

$bb->name = ‘test forum’;

// This must be set before you run the install script.

$bb->admin_email = ‘’;

// Set to true if you want pretty permalinks, set to ‘slugs’ if you want to use slug based pretty permalinks.

$bb->mod_rewrite = slugs;

// The number of topics that show on each page.

$bb->page_topics = 15;

// A user can edit a post for this many minutes after submitting.

$bb->edit_lock = 1;

// Your timezone offset. Example: -7 for Pacific Daylight Time.

$bb->gmt_offset = 0;

// Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the

// chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.

// For example, install to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to ‘de’

// to enable German language support.

define(‘BBLANG’, ‘en’);

// Your Akismet Key. You do not need a key to run bbPress, but if you want to take advantage

// of Akismet’s powerful spam blocking, you’ll need one. You can get an Akismet key at


$bb->akismet_key = ”; // Example: ‘0123456789ab’

// The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

// If you’re not, just leave it as it is.

$bb->wp_table_prefix = ”; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

$bb->wp_home = ”; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // Example: ‘;

$bb->wp_siteurl = ”; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // Example: ‘;

/* Stop editing */

if ( !defined(‘BBPATH’) )

define(‘BBPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );

require_once( BBPATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );
