Where is your database located?

I have solved the problen, i have the server thing instead of local host there.

now it says:


A fatal and unrecoverable database error has occured. This may be because the specified user does not have appropriate rights to CREATE TABLES or INSERT data, etc. Further information may be given below. Please contact your hosting provider in the first instance or the support forums of phpBB for further assistance.

install_install.php [ 970 ]

SQL : CREATE TABLE craigt_testattachments ( attach_id mediumint(Cool UNSIGNED NOT NULL auto_increment, post_msg_id mediumint(Cool UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, topic_id mediumint(Cool UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, in_message tinyint(1) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, poster_id mediumint(Cool UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, physical_filename varchar(255) NOT NULL, real_filename varchar(255) NOT NULL, download_count mediumint(Cool UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, comment text, extension varchar(100), mimetype varchar(100), filesize int(20) UNSIGNED NOT NULL, filetime int(11) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, thumbnail tinyint(1) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (attach_id), KEY filetime (filetime), KEY post_msg_id (post_msg_id), KEY topic_id (topic_id), KEY poster_id (poster_id), KEY physical_filename (physical_filename(10)), KEY filesize (filesize) )

Table 'craigt_testattachments' already exists

BUT if i go to the url of the forum http://www.thecomputerhideout.frih.net/forum2/

it just says delete the install files as if it is done, do you think i should just use it?
after all, i am only testing the board.
