Trying to get help with this situation. I have installed PHPBB, PHP (4X) and MySQL 4.1.
This is how I started out.
1. Installed MYSQL - ran setup - did FULL install - and entered in new password when requested. MYSQL gave the green light when computer rebooted. Created new database with CREATE DATABASE XXX; Also installed ODBC from MYSQL site and created a "SITE DSN" for the ODBC
2. Installed PHP and verfied working and accessible
3. Installed PHPBB per the instructions on the site. Did the permissions as instructed on config.php and install.php
4. Came to the install screen. Entered the info and password that I did with MYSQL installation (Root was the username)
NOW SAYS - CANNOT CONNECT TO THE DATABASE. I do not know what to do at this point.. Please help
