Hi all,

I just created my database, and updated the setup options, but I'm still getting an error when I run the _install.php file.

This is my set up in setup_options.php:



My webhost is StartLogic. Please advise, thank you.

What exactly error appears? There could be very many reasons... If you have CPanel or something like that installed, in mySQL section, it should give you exact login, password and host to set up in miniBB, if everything is set up correctly.

I get a Database/configuration error.

My webhost uses vDeck. When I ask Startlogic for technical support, they always tell me to ask the software provider for help. Not sure what to do at this point.

"Database/configuration error" that the script can not even connect to the database, and the settings provided are 100% wrong.

Where did you get mySQL data from?

'localhost' is not always correct value for host. Your provider may use concrete domain as host.

There is nothing what we could tell widely in that case, and are investigating problems like this only for a fee. miniBB uses very standard procedure for connecting to database. If it doesn't work, it's 100% error on server/configuration side.
