I copied the phpBB2 folder piece by piece to my ftp site, however when I run the install it gives me the error "Cannot Connect to Database". I am a complete novice when it comes to installing the forums and the instructions do not make much sense to me. Can anyone help me?
I had the same problem recently, when I switched hosts, and just FTP'ed everything across. It didnt work.....
I then realised that I also
needed to restore the database, via the
- Restore Database
I also ensured that I used the same username and password for the new database area, that I had to create, as the original setup. It all worked in the end.
My problem was that I didn't know what I was doing
