I’m trying to install Simple Machines Forum to a domain on my account. I’m having some difficulties.
[quote]The installer was unable to access the “databasename” 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.

The problem is, I already created a database in the admin panel. I’m not sure what to do next. I can’t seem to find any solid information on resolving this problem anywhere.
Has anyone else had this problem? Should I try to manually put the data into the database and manually do the install rather than letting an installer do it? How would I go about doing that?
