I recently registered with a host with PHP capabilities. I uploaded phpBB2 and opened the install.php fie view my browser.
From here on out I do not know what to do!
There are questions about a database and I am asked for information which I do not know.
If someone would like to help me get this set up and running it would be a life-saver.

Thank you

I would recommend you to first ask for help at the official phpBB website which is www.phpbb.com

Also I would recommend you to watch the [a href=\"http://www.phpbb.com/support/tutorials/\" target=\"_blank\"]flash video[/a] turorials aswell as read the [a href=\"http://www.phpbb.com/support/documents.php?mode=install\" target=\"_blank\"]phpBB documentation[/a] too.

If you are unsure of what your database login details are I would recommend you to ask your webhost what they are and also check that your webshost has a MySQL database installed for you to use.
