PhP, ODBC, SQL.... :boggle: I just want to use a PhP Forum :)
After some tweaking, I finally got my HostOnce account working and uploaded PhPBB2 to the htdocs/ directory... yay! However, I am not sure what kind of database I should setup on the virtual control panel for it to support PhPBB2.
On the ODBC section of the control panel, should I create an Access, SQL server, or Text ODBC?
I am thinking about going Text, but without documentry anywhere on the control panel, I am not sure which one my PhPBB forum needs.
I am using the PhPBB installation guide as a reference:
You have a running web service provider
1) Your web host is running the mysql version 3.x database
2) Your web host is running PHP 4
:boggle: how to tell if my host runs PhP4?
3) Your web host has given you a database to use, along with the username, password, and server address (if different from the webserver)
Hmm it means the ODBC I am setting up, right?
4)Your web host has given you ftp access, and you know which directory is the base directory for your web pages.
This is such a thrilling learning experience for me!

You need to either find a host that does or use a different board.
.edit. Hopefully, they have a 30 day money back guarantee you can fall back on.
