seems simple, but i’m stumped
i have downloaded bbpress and uploaded files to server.
on the first step, where it asks for database name, username and password, the username and password are correctly filled in already. when i manually fill in the db name “forum” i get this error:
“There was a problem connecting to the database you specified.
Please check the settings, then try again.”
I have read through the forums and not found anything that works…
I am trying to install on an add-on domain (www.roninbrush.com/forum) and as per other help threads I have tried reinstalling one level up, as well as on the main user domain (guysunderpressure.com). none of which worked
in another thread it said to fill in the db host with something similar to:
mysql.roninbrush.guysunderpressure.com rather than localhost.
this did not work either.
i’m sure i’ve missed something incredibly simple, but it’s beyond me. any help you could give me would be much appreciated.
also listed below are the perl and php connection strings (if that helps at all)
$dbh = DBI->connect(“DBI:mysql:guysu2_forum:localhost”,
$dbh=mysql_connect (“localhost”, “guysu2_bradford”,
“<PASSWORD HERE>”) or die(‘Cannot connect to the database because: ‘ . mysql_error());
