How to install phpbb2 on this host


#1

I’m having problems getting my forum working. I created a database My sql user and hostname. I uploaded the board and try to retrieve the index.php but the server doesn’t respond with the page. Instead I get an error 'phpBB Critical Error Could not connect to the database

Can someone help here?

When did you create the db? I’ve had variable results, where sometimes the db will connect within a few hours whereas once I had to wait two days. The issue seems to be that propagating the db hostname is what takes time. I’ve got four phpbb’s running on DH so it works for sure :slight_smile:
