phpbb2 with frihost problem





PriDe
i'm trying to install a phpbb2 forum on my frihost account, however i've got a problem when installing the forum. The page is returning this error message:
Code:

phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database


this is my install screen
can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong..10ks


pls note that all i did was download the latest phpbb2 zip file from their site, extracted it and that uploaded all the files through ftp..this screen appears once i access the install.php script in the install folder

link to that file:

You need to create a database in Direct Admin. See this tutorial for full details

Yes. You need to read the above post.

Before you install phpBB, you need to create a new database in Direct Admin. The tutorial link I posted above shows you how to do this step-by-step. Please read it.
