  • Install problem

    Iam installing the forum on spaceports.com,

    I installed it... i think right, this is my config setup... maybe someone could helpme with this.

    <?php
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    // Please note that if you get any errors when connecting, //
    // that you will need to email your host as we cannot tell //
    // you what your specific values are supposed to be //
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    // type of database running
    // (only mysql is supported at the moment)
    $dbservertype="mysql";

    // hostname or ip of server
    $servername="localhost";

    // username and password to log onto db server
    $dbusername="username";
    $dbpassword="password";

    // name of database
    $dbname="database";

    // allow password viewing / editing in control panel
    // 0 = not visible or editable
    // 1 = not visible, but can be edited
    // 2 = visible and can be edited
    $pwdincp=0;

    // technical email address - any error messages will be emailed here
    $technicalemail = "[email protected]";

    // use persistant connections to the database
    // 0 = don't use
    // 1 = use
    $usepconnect = 1;

    ?>

    it gives me 1040 error, i dont know whats that... here is the exact message



    Attempting to attach to database...

    Connect failed: unexpected error from the database.

    Error number: 1044

    Please ensure that the database and server is correctly configured and try again.

      Is the name of your database correct? And are you supposed to connect to localhost or a specific server name or IP address?
