can't instal, going round in circles?

  • OK I am going round in circles trying to get bbpress installed;

    I have done a fresh unzip to a new directory, as a sub-directory of WordPress…

    If I then open the url (i renamed bbpress folder to forums) I get a cannot connect to database error…

    So I then go bb-config-sample.php file and rename it to bb-config.php and enter my database details and then go back to URL and either get

    “Oh dear! bbPress is already installed.”

    Or I get a prompt for database details which leads me to a login page with “User does not exist.” error…

    Is there a way to create a user somehow? I cannot login as there’s no existing user…

    I am going round in circles and nothing seems to work…

    I have tried many different variations, I had it working once but since then (deleted all files) I cannot get it going again…

    Any ideas?
