The information in the config.php needs to match the credentials needed to access your database. It is like you having to have a username and password to access this website; if you don't have the correct password to match your username, you will not be allowed access to this website. The same is tru for your board trying to access the database; if it doesn't have a matching pair, it will not get access. There is no way we can tell you what the username and password are for your database, whoever administers the database should tell you.

They need to be entered into the config.php. If you still get the same error that you reported at the start of this topic, the username and password are not what you think they are. That's why someone asked whether they were changed.

Your config.php file is incomplete. How was it created? Normally, it would be created by the installation procedure.

Is this the same file you posted earlier? Make sure that you entered the database username and password correctly. The errors you reported last indicate that the entry:

Code: Select all

$acm_type = 'file' ;
did not properly execute. This may be due to editing errors in the lines before it.

The errors you reported earlier, about the missing table, may indicate that your phpBB installation is using a different table prefix than the one that is in your config.php. To find out what the correct table prefix is, you will need to look into your database using a tool such as phpmyadmin. You may need the help of your server admin, if you don't know how to do that.

Open that blank config.php file in notepad++
http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

Paste this code into it making sure there are no spaces or lines at the start or end.
Edit the fields I've marked to match your database

Code: Select all

<?php
// phpBB 3.0.x auto-generated configuration file
// Do not change anything in this file!
$dbms = 'mysql';
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbport = '';
$dbname = 'your_database_name_in_here';
$dbuser = 'your_database_username_in_here';
$dbpasswd = 'your_database_password_in_here';
$table_prefix = 'your_database_table_prefix_in_here_';
$acm_type = 'file';
$load_extensions = '';

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
// @define('DEBUG', true);
// @define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);
?>
Save and then upload it to the forum folder and see what happens.
