Hmm, double check them, open up config.php, make sure the info is correct Wink.

config.php is found in your forum's root btw

No need.

Code:
<?php

//
// phpBB 2.x auto-generated config file
// Do not change anything in this file!
//

$dbms = "mysql";

$dbhost = "localhost";
$dbname = "dbnamehere";
$dbuser = "usernamehere";
$dbpasswd = "dbpasswordhere";

$table_prefix = "phpbb_";

define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);

?>


Fill that in your config.php Wink

And don't forget to change the values with the real ones. I mean these three:

Quote:
$dbname = "dbnamehere";
$dbuser = "usernamehere";
$dbpasswd = "dbpasswordhere";

you get this wrror if you don;t type the username or password correctly.It is not able to connet to the database with the usrname or pass you have provided.Type the usrname or passwd you created while creating the database
