BBPRESS on my USB webserver!
I have this nifty USB Webserver (which I can run on the computer too from hard disk), to try out forums, blogs, and more.
Now I stumbled across this BBPRESS, and this looked exactly like the thing I need!
However! for some reason I can’t install it, and I have been searching through the forums allready, but i don’t have a lot of time today to search through the forums for hours.
So here’s my problem, I get the dreafull “can’t select DB” error.
I have no password on my mysql, as its just an standallone webserver which only I, the one behind this laptop, can access, and so it does not require a password.
To access my webserver by a browser, I type in “http://localhost:8080″, it uses port 8080 to make sure it doesn’t conflict with 80.
Anyways, i’ve read a lot of sollutions on how to correct the problem, but for some reason I just can’t seem to solve this! maybe i’m wanting to go too fast, or perhaps I just overlook one tiny thing.
But its getting a little annoying after a few hours.
So that’s why I need help.
This is the first part of config.php which I needed to fill in.
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘bbpress’); // The name of the database
define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘root’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ”); // …and password
define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
// 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 = ‘http://localhost:8080/bbpress';
// What are you going to call me?
$bb->name = ‘Test website';
// This must be set before you run the install script.
$bb->admin_email = ‘firstname.lastname@example.org';
// Set to true if you want pretty permalinks, set to ‘slugs’ if you want to use slug based pretty permalinks.
$bb->mod_rewrite = false;
// The number of topics that show on each page.
$bb->page_topics = 30;
// A user can edit a post for this many minutes after submitting.
$bb->edit_lock = 60;
// Your timezone offset. Example: -7 for Pacific Daylight Time.
$bb->gmt_offset = 0;
So with “define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value”, I allready changed it a few times to “bbpress.localhost” or “localost.bbpress” as said in another topic, I tried a lot of things, but to no avail.
I seriously need help, before i’m going to cry :'(
I kid I kid, but help is apreciated.
