Did you or your hosts change any of the database information or edit the config.php file?

Huh, this is trivial :) you just forgot:
1) create username and database as it described in your config file
or
2) this user does not have permission for this database
:)

That error suggests you have an existing phpBB folder but the information in the config.php file does not match that of the database.

Depends what you changed to begin with.
Open the config.php file and see if it matches what the database wants.

WHen opening the config.php file I get this

Code: Select all

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /forum/config.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Download it from the server and open it in a plain text editor like notepad++
But my original point remains. Either you or your hosts changed something about the config file or database info. If you don't know what it is, you need to ask them.

No she didn't change anything and Im waiting to hear from her. It was when I removed the old install of phpbb that this happened. I am just so confused none of this makes any sense to me.
