mySQL settings section

Post by theMezz »

I do not know what to enter here during the installation.
I can create a mySQL user using the control panel on my web host, I did that and use the same information in the variables below. I use localhost as DSN and bbs_ as database name - but I get errors when I submit this

Database Server Hostname / DSN:
Your Database Name:
Database Username:
Database Password

Suggestions and Guidance appreciated
