Newbie have problem with installing the phpbb..

Post by cmodel » Wed Dec 10, 2008 7:37 am

All,
It's my first time to use phpbb, When I was installing phpbb, it always had errors with my Apache httpd.exe.

my configuration is:

WinXP SP3 + Apache 2.2.10 + PHP 5.2.5 + MySQL 5.1.30.

common Apache + PHP application runs OK, which I have tested.

only when I installed phpBB, Apache errors happened...
I have the screenshot attached.

The error is happening when phpBB first tries to connect to the database which will be used.

Have you tried other MySQL applications and have you tried setting up phpmyadmin?

That appears to be an Apache problem, You will have to ask at there support site which is here.

Apache has MYSQL and phpMyAdmin built into it. but if you type in localhost on 'Database Server Name' cmodel it will point to your database which could be the problem.
