phpbb installation problem





Tony The Tiger
While following the phpbb installation tutorial (http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-19192.html ), At step 12, I encountered the following error:

Quote:
phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database


What are some possible problems?
Loathing in Fear
Problem: you might have entered a wrong database name or something like that

NOTE: The database name is: "username"_"db name"
(the username is the name you login to direct admin or cpanel
db name is the name you gave to the database like, forum or
something like that)

1) like mentioned earlier, wrong db name
2) wrong username and/or password...

check if the db exists thru cPanel / DA's inbuild DB administration functions

Did it work?

It worked. I had renamed my file "forum (phpbb2)". When I rerenamed it back to "forum" everything was fine.
