I'm trying to install phpBB, and all I need is a working SQL database w/ login etc. I have tried using mySQL and it wouldn't let me change the password (I guess this is a common issue) so now I'm trying MS SQL and even it's not working. Here is the phpBB login:
My username / password are below that. When I press 'Next Step' it gives me that error. I have Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express installed, and when I run the SQL Server Configuration Manager, I set the Logon as: Local System (so I set my username/password to my servers login. Let me know if this is incorrect). Regardless, it should still connect and I'm curious to why it won't. I'm new to this somewhat, but I don't see a tool installed to edit/add databases, just the service itself. Any help?
