If I am not mistaken, you have to first setup a database for phpbb board in MySQL and that is why it is asking you for the database Name,UserName,And Password.

In order for the board to work properly, you have to setup a database for it in MySQL. Here is a tutorial on how to do that....... http://www.gfx-heaven.com/modules.php?name...cced786b02e96e0 (http://www.gfx-heaven.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=1179&sid=43ba96c0470a44957cced786b02e96e0)
