I'm doing a new install and have verified that my server
meets all the requirements.
So now I'm at this step .....
2.) Database Configuration
"If you're using PhotoPost with an existing forum, you can either use the MySQL database that you're presently using for your forum for both PhotoPost and your forum, or you can create a separate database for PhotoPost (in either case, your forum user database will still be used by PhotoPost). If you choose to, or if you are using PhotoPost by itself, create a MySQL database for PhotoPost and record the database name and the username and password needed to access it. Be sure to consult http://www.mysql.com and your web host if you have questions about installing MySQL or setting up a MySQL database."
I have never used MySQL, so the site was of little help.
How do I actually create & record a database?
What are the commands?
Do you have mysql acess on your server?
Assuming you do, you have to find the 'username' to mysql in order to create/modify/delete tables there.
that username/password is what you have to type on the 'intall.php' program when you are doing the install of PP and all the rest should be done automaticly if you areNOT using any other Forum Database. (I'm assuming you not, since you have no clue about you mysql)
I'm not using any other forum databases.
I believe i do have access to mysql because
when I run phpinfo I get the following for mysql:
MySQL Support enabled
Active Persistent Links 0
Active Links 0
Client API version 3.23.58
MYSQL_LIBS -L/usr/local/psa/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient
Directive Local Value Master Value
mysql.allow_persistent On On
mysql.connect_timeout 60 60
mysql.default_host no value no value
mysql.default_password no value no value
mysql.default_port no value no value
mysql.default_socket no value no value
mysql.default_user no value no value
mysql.max_links Unlimited Unlimited
mysql.max_persistent Unlimited Unlimited
mysql.trace_mode Off Off
Looks like you DO have access to mysql.
Probably you want to ask your provider about a password for your database (username and password).
You would need to sign into your control panel and setup a database and database user password to input into the install.php when you run it.
OK GOT IT !!!
That's what I needed & it works now.
