Similar Problem

Well, i've got a similar problem. I've got MySQL all running good, i created the db as you guys said up above and everything. It all looked good. But when i get to the PHPBB install page, and fill it out, and click install, it keeps giving me the following error:

The PHP configuration on your server doesn't support the database type that you chose

I've chosen MySQL 3.x, which is what i'm running. This is really frustrating me.....

I belive you need to install the php-mysql package. To see if it is installed - create a "phpinfo.php" page containing:
Then view it through your browser. You will probably find that there is no mysql section.
