I am trying to install bbpress using my wordpress account. How do I determine what the database name is? I have several databases created such as mysql, goldsgym, staff. My domain name is goldsmiddletown.com. What is the actual name I should enter (using the goldsgym db) and also how do I determine the user name and password for that database?
You need to create a new database for that setup, which you seem to say you did. Check them out in the Panel under Goodies -> Manage MySQL and scroll down until you see some database names and users associated with them. Click on a db user to get its password.
