PHPBB Manual Install

From Lunarpages Web Hosting Wiki

When installing phpBB, the installation program asks for a hostname, port number, database name, database username, and database password. What should I enter into these fields?

Before installing the forum, you need to create a Database and Database user, then add the User to the database in cPanel or LPCP.

When you install the forum it will ask for the DB info, you need to enter:

  • Host: localhost (cPanel) or The.Dedicated.Server.IP (LPCP-find it here)
  • Port: 3306
  • Database: enter the name of the DB you created.
  • Username: enter the username you added to the DB.
  • Password: enter the password you gave the username
