Have you created a database yet? you need to first create a database for the forum to use, the easyphp documentation should tell you how to do this

sorry but that is not really a phpBB issue :) although assuming you have easyphp installed trying browsing to http://localhost/phpmyadmin and see if you have phpmyadmin there.....you can use that to create a database.

Right click the e >configuration>phpmyadmin
Create a database
By default the username is root and there is no password.

You should now have enough info to carry on the installation.

Database Name:

Database Username: Root?

Database Password: (I guess i leave this blank)
