  • Failed at step 2....

    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.

    Ok so I deleted my old forum and now am trying to install 3.0.8 and it is giving me this error at step 2...

    What did I miss? I went over the install instructions again and did not see anything about this?

    Is this where I have to adjust the CHMOD?

    I went through the config.php and read it through the only thing I changed was the email address, I didnt know what else to change?
