I have correctly configured MySQL to accept incoming connections, but my latest problem is configuring PHP to connect to it, as you can see in my topic discription, I am trying to install phpBB and because of my problem I'm not getting very far.

the connect code is write correctly??

have you change the config file to connect to your db, and not the default?

I've used phpbb long time ago, so don't remember exactly how it works to connect..

I'm not sure about the connection code in the installation script, I daren't tamper with that... PHP.net tells me to enable an extension in my configuration and following that, correct connection settings... in which I have done and also add a client library file to the Win XP path in which I have done, and to make sure things are working correctly I downloaded the up-to-date PHP connector extensions from MySQL.com.

Is this problem at instalation page of phpbb, right? So, the user you allow access into mysql database is the same you using at the setup page?

Can't help you a lot.. if you have some example like depuring the problem..
