help me set up a dev server for phpbb

Post by edzillion »

I have copied the phpbb installation onto my testing server, which is XAMPP, but it can't find the mysql dbase.
I have edited the config.php file like so:
$dbms = 'mysql';
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbport = '';
$dbname = 'test';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpasswd = '';
but I get the error "Table 'test.phpbb_config' doesn't exist [1146]"

Any ideas?
TIA

You have to make a database dump of you live forum and import it into the MySQL database on your local machine.
