Error during Installation

  • Hi all. New bbpress user. Just for some background, I currently have a mediawiki and vanilla forums installed concurrently on the machine I wish to run bbpress on. OS X 10.6.5, php & mysql (both from darwinports) and the stock httpd Apple provides on the OS.

    I receive an error after “installing” (re: unzip and move the files to the appropriate directory) bbpress and creating/editing bb-config.php

    ERROR: Could not establish a database connection

    I’m not much of a php developer since what I can only do is check for minimal syntax and rearrange html elements. Trying to debug the php to mysql is out of my scope. Can anybody offer insights as to what may be going on?
