OK I won't tell you to search Vicious_AD but from the error that I see you are simply not connecting to the database. You will need to check your config .php file in the root directory. The file will look similar to below;
// phpBB 2.x auto-generated config file
// Do not change anything in this file!
$dbms = 'mysql'; // This is correct for astahost
$dbhost = 'localhost'; // This is correct for astahost
$dbname = 'vicious'; // Make this correct on astahost is is usually your username
$dbuser = 'xxxxx'; // This needs to be the same password as the cPanel
$dbpasswd = '';
$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';
You can go to the cPanel then to file manager and you will see that file (config.php) in your root or whichever subfolder you put the phpBB files into possibly metabbv4 the problem starts in the db folder which is basically trying to connect to the database server and here is the code that starts the error.
function sql_db($sqlserver, $sqluser, $sqlpassword, $database, $persistency = true)
$this->persistency = $persistency;
$this->user = $sqluser;
$this->password = $sqlpassword;
$this->server = $sqlserver;
$this->dbname = $database;
$this->db_connect_id = ($this->persistency) ? mysql_pconnect($this->server, $this->user, $this->password) : mysql_connect($this->server, $this->user, $this->password);
The other two lines are just the lines that tell you about the error. So go to the file manager
and find the config.php
file in the metabbv4
folder and there is an option to edit it, just fill in the proper values
for the user and password then try it again and you should be good to go.
