MySQL Username&Password





Daire
I'm currently installing SMF onto my site and it asks me for my 'MySQL' username and password.

Where can I find out what these are?

If you're on frihost you can set them using Direct Admin: http://www.site-helper.com/mysql.html#create

Thanks!


Now for my next question! Laughing


I've entered in my name and password and I get this error.

Quote:
The installer was unable to access the "smf" database. With some hosts, you have to create the database in your administration panel before SMF can use it. Some also add prefixes - like your username - to your database names.


I've never worked with forums before so I'm finding it a bit tricky.


Any Help?

Thanks.

EDIT.

Thanks to using some common sense I figured out what was wrong, prefix's added and stuff like that.

Thanks for your help.
MrBlueSky
You have to use the exact database name you created with DirectAdmin.

another way to make a login and password is to not use a database at all. you can just amnnually pre-define the users if you want.................but this ways is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo tedious!

Rememberm its also important to include which table your using!
