thanks!
I use dreamweaver to upload files, however, I cannot find "CHMOD" to change the config.php file. Do you know how can I do it? Also, I do not have MySQL, do I need to have database? Where can I download it?
Thanks

Yes, you need a DB. Your ISP or webhost usually provides one.

Yes, you MUST have database software. Most hosts that support php have a database, so check.

As for the chmod, I do not know of how to do it in Dreamweaver, but you can use http://www.net2ftp.com/ to connect and chmod the file there

I went to create database table twice, it may cost the problem. The first time, database table name is phpbb, however, I did not change the CHMOD, so I have to go back and reload phpbb. I changed the database table name as phpbb2. I do not know if you are following me. Please help me with it
Also, I have add "chat room" into my website, and link it with "index.php, however, the link is not working when I click login:(
something bad:-(
I have redownloaded everything and restart all over. I cannot connect database anymore:-(! I do not know what should I do!
