Moving phpbb

Post by Hellweed » Wed Feb 04, 2004 2:58 pm

Moving phpbb.

I’ve had to relocate my website once again and I’ve run into a roadblock. The last time I moved it was very simple to do because I was able to create a database and username/password just like I had before and the move was pretty much seamless. With my new host I’m not able to do this. The database name has a username appended to it and the username has my account name appended to it. There is no way around it.

How/where can I change this info? I don’t want to do a fresh install of phpbb if possible.

Thanks in advance.
