You were right about that . I put the ; in and now i`m getting
Database connection failed due to Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Edit the database settings in C:/xampp/htdocs/dump/bigdump.php or contact your database provider.
Start from the beginning (DROP the old tables before restarting)
I tried putting "root; on line 41 and tried it with nothing there . All the details i put in while installing everything are written in my last post .
This is what is in config.php from xampp\htdocs\phpBB3
// phpBB 3.0.x auto-generated configuration file
// Do not change anything in this file!
$dbms = 'mysqli';
$dbhost = '';
$dbport = '';
$dbname = 'phpbb';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpasswd = '';
$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';
$acm_type = 'file';
$load_extensions = '';
// @define('DEBUG', true);
// @define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);
Thats the exact copy .
What i say is my opinion . If you dont like it or dissagree with it lets talk about it and try to come to an agreement . I`m not to old to learn or change my opinions if they are wrong .
