Hi guys, I'm trying to get a phpBB message board set up. I have apache installed and working. PHP should be working, when I run phpinfo(); I get the propper page. I think that mysql is installed, but not sure. At the command line if I type mysql I get the mysql prompt.
When I open the intall.php page that comes with phpBB it opens fine and I started to fill out the information. Then I came to the part that asks for database configuration. I didn't know what it was so I looked around and found out that I needed to create a database. So I used...
mysqladmin -u root create phpbbDB
I think that this is soposed to create a database with the user as root, and the database name as phpbbDB. I guess that the password is just soposed to be the same as the root account, and the Database Server Hostname should just be localhost since it is on this computer. What should "Prefix for tables in database" set as? The default is set to phpbb_
Thanks for the help again guys. I don't know what I would do without you all!
