I have installed phpBB many times before, but now with this new version , which I like MUCH better, it always gives me the same error:

Cannot connect to database.

Can anyone help me?

Are you doin a fresh install? If so be sure your config.php file is empty.

And if you're upgrading, check if the settings in your Config.php file are the right one.

Also make sure the database exists first, and you have the right username/password.

Make sure the host is correct. Check the user's password. It is case-sensitive. Also, make sure the user has permission to that db. ;)
