    OK, what exactly should I say?

    That does not make any diffrence with the database.

    Make sure you have the correct database name, server name, database username, and username password entered.

    If you are unaware of what any of these settings are, please contact your host.

    I now know my database name, but it still does not work. I belive it is because of the D:hosting at the beggining of the URL. Anyone know why this is there and how to fix the problem?

    Contact your host, they should know what it is, if you have that option.

    Well, I don't know how to find my database name. Do you know how I can find my database name?

    It means the actual name of the database itself.

    Steve, when it says "dbname" does that mean something similar to "/forums" or something similar to "db_XXXXX"?

    This error means either:

    1. One or more of the following is wrong in your config.php file:

    $servername (except in rare cases, this should almost always be left as 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1')
    $dbusername
    $dbpassword
    $dbname

    If you are unsure of what the appropriate values are then you will need to ask your web host.

    2. Or that this db user is not assigned to that database or does not have permission to access MySQL to create or access a database. You may need to first manually create the database and assign the db user to it. Since each web host is different, if you do not know how to do this then contact your web host for help.

    3. Or you are running MySQL 4.1.x. As of MySQL 4.1.X there is a new password hashing system. PHP4 does not have builtin support for it as of yet, however PHP5 does. In order for your old PHP4 MySQL clients to be able to connect to the MySQL 4.1.X database you need to set an OLD_PASSWORD. You should be able to run the following Query to make it possible for PHP4 to access the MySQL 4.1.X database.

    SET PASSWORD FOR 'username'@'localhost' = OLD_PASSWORD('password');

    More info is here:

    Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in d:\hosting\mattmorse425\forums\includes\db_mysql.php on line 140
    The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the 'includes/config.php' file.

    It should say more than that. What is the complete message?

    Step 2 (HELP)

    Ok, I entered all of the values in the config.php file correctly. On step 2, it says

    d:\hosting\mattmorse425\forums\includes\db_mysql.php on line 140.

    Why d:/hosting?? How can I change this?
