My last topic was closed? database configuration settings

  • brayjason


    Hello again everybody,

    I apologize if I posted something against the rules? My last post was closed?

    Well it was about getting support installing bbpress. I have done web design in the past but never integrated a forum. I would really like to add a bbpress forum to my site.

    my problem is in the database configuration settings. I uploaded to my server fine but when asked for my database configuration settings I keep getting a message saying the info I put is incorrect. I says

    “”There was a problem connecting to the database you specified.

    Please check the settings, then try again.”

    This is the information I have to work with.

    » MySQL Database


    » MySQL User


    » MySQL Host

    Any help would be great. Thank you everybody.

    Also, I heard from somebody that I have to create a table on my database for this to work? I did not see that in the bbpress directions, is this correct?

    Here is a screen shot of what I’m dealing with.




    You might need to click the “show advanced settings” checkbox there. When you do that, you will have a place to enter your database host ( You don’t need to do anything other than make sure that database exists. No need to create tables; the installer does that for you. I think that’s probably the only problem, assuming the password is correct.
