Install.php Step 1 Question Before I Continue

  • Hi,

    I’m in the process of installing bbPress. I’ve uploaded it to my server and now I’m at the install.php step 1.

    So, here’s my question: Should the info on the first page match the info I placed in the config.php file? Should User Name be the same? Forum name be the same? And, where it says location does that mean

    This may sound like a weird question, but I don’t want to chance screwing this up.

  • OK, maybe I should be a bit more clear.

    For the install “Step 1” where it says

    “Before we begin we need a little bit of information about your site’s first administrator account, and your site’s first forum,”

    What goes in these boxes?

      user name*




      forum name*


    Do the * have to be the same as in the config file or can I change them? Also, is the description a sub-title or is it something that will be listed in search engines?

    Thanks again

    These are for your forum account – what you will use on the forum to post be a member etc

    I wouldnt recomend using what you put in your config file.

    Thank you for responding.

    I figured that, but I wanted to make sure before continuing.

    Thanks again.
