OK, I’m about to throw my computer out the window I’m so freakin’ frustrated. The guys in the phpBB forum aren’t helping, the DH tech guys aren’t helping, and I have no clue where it is I’m going wrong with installing phpBB.
I have an active DB, DB hostname and DB user.
I put in the following info:
Database Server Hostname / DSN: mysql/domainname.com
Your Database Name: DHusername_DBusername
Database Username: DHusername_DBusername
(this came from a tip from the phpBB board. When I put them in this way, I get a can’t connect message. When I put them in without the DHusername_, I get a different ‘can’t write to file’ message.)
Database Password: duh, DB password
Domain Name: www.domainname.com
Server Port: 80
Script path: /phpbb2/
…and I get this:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: ‘DHusername_DBusername@crack.dreamhost.com’ (Using password: YES) in /home/.palamino/DHusername/domainname.com/phpBB2/db/mysql4.php on line 42
Warning: mysql_error(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/.palamino/DHusername/domainname.com/phpBB2/db/mysql4.php on line 324
Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/.palamino/DHusername/domainname.com/phpBB2/db/mysql4.php on line 325
phpBB : Critical Error
Could not connect to the database
and if I DON’T add DHusername_ in front of stuff, I get a list of messages that all look like this:
An error occurred trying to update the database
Could not insert board_startdate :: INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES (‘board_startdate’, 1089961001) :: 741 :: /home/.palamino/notwitho/bigbadbabynames.com/phpBB2/install/install.php
I am at my wits’ f**king end! What the hell am I missing? I’ve got this feeling it has something to do with the server (.palamino or crack or whatever), but I have no idea where that would need to be added!
PLEASE PLEASE help! I’ve got 300 forum users who need a new forum NOW! And I don’t want to break my window throwing my computer through it!
Thank you so much!
