  • New Installation Problem

    I was so thrilled when i saw this board, so i downloaded the lite version to test it.
    Asfar as i know my config settings are correct yet when i go to the install.php3 i get an error wehn trying to connect to the database;

    Attempting to connect...

    Warning: Lost connection to MySQL server during query in db_mysql.php3 on line 31

    Warning: 0 is not a MySQL link index in db_mysql.php3 on line 37

    Anyone have any clue what this can be or how i can solve this?

    Errors on "line 31" are usually due to having the wrong database identifier. If you post your config.php3 file (starring out your password, of course), I could offer some specific advice. However, most likely you should just change the "database host" line back to [b]localhost[/b] from the specific name you entered. Another possibitility is that you are not using the correct name for your database; on a shared server, it us usually your account name.
