    your database user / name is usually

    cpanelusername_namegiven (assuming you're using shared hosting) e.g if your username is bob it would be bob_forum

    Assuming the db info in your config.php file is correct, this is a server issue. Please see this page for the causes of this error:

    Another example:
    Database name: myforum
    User name: Howie

    then with certain webhosts the database name could become: Howie_myforum

    Seems wrong database type.
    Yep, now ive got the same error as the other thread..

    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 lets say my db name is "Howie".. what else should i put, like any "_" or db? or _slave?

    Help me people!

    Stuck on step 2 (different to Peoplecore though)

    Hey all

    Iv read people cores post, but I have a different message.

    It isnt exactly an error, but its saying this:

    Step 2) Connect to the database
    Selected database type 'mysqli' was not detected within your compilation of PHP.

    What do I do to fix this problem

    Any help for a noob..?

    Thanks

    Howie.
