I'm having some trouble with installing phpbb. I dont know barely anything about databases. Our forum was previously on another host & domain, so we took the files & put them on www.theugl.net (my host), so that we can transfer the board. But i keep getting a error "cannot connect with database"
where is the configurationf ile located? the config file was on the admin panel of the original board...should i have edited it before i transfered? cause it seems even access the control on the new DB.
This oddly happened to one of my sites and I ended up just copying a config.php from another site and editing it and it seemed to work. You might want to download the old config.php and try that..... I have no clue why it did not work and it is still a mystery but that did fix the issue by getting another copy of config.php. Also triplecheck all permissions.
