Well, one step at a time. Most hosts provide a front end control panel (cPanel, PLESK, etc). Within those cp's are a link to MySQL. You must use MySQL to create a database. Name it whatever you want. You must then create a 'user' with a password for MySQL. Then, you have to 'link' that user to your database. So, you should now have a valid database, username, and userpassword. Once that is done, you need to modify the nuke file config.php. When you unpacked your nuke distribution, the file has code in it like
Code:
$dbhost = "localhost";

$dbuname = "root";
$dbpass = "";
$dbname = "nuke";
$prefix = "nuke";
$user_prefix = "nuke";
$dbtype = "MySQL";



So, let's assume you created the following names:
database name = mynukedb
database username = barkadli
database password = password

You would then modify the above code to
Code:
$dbhost = "localhost";

$dbuname = "barkadli";
$dbpass = "password";
$dbname = "mynukedb";
$prefix = "nuke";
$user_prefix = "nuke";
$dbtype = "MySQL";


After you make those changes, ftp that file to replace the one on your server. Now when you goto Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! you should still have an error but it will be a different one because you now have the database but no tables. You must now load the tables into the database. Probably the easiest way is to get the installer for your version as described in Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Before going any further, lets see if you can get the database created Wink

Ok i did enter all of the Database info described above in the Config.php file and uploaded it back into the FTP and the site shows a blank page. i got my database from Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! and it works with my phpBB 2 forum so i am guessing the problem is not the database.
what do you think?
thnx

Look in your server error log. It should be a link from your control panel and see if there are any errors being recorded.
