Actually, if you using phpbb its a guessing game and this feature is not working properly. Delete the username_xmb1 database and the username_username account since you dont know the password that was assigned. Then re-create the username_xmb1 database with your own username and password. Assign the username to the database and try your installation again. At least when you recreate the username you know exactly what the password is since you just create the user and its no longer a guessing game.

Or you could do the most obvious, view the config.php file in ../public_html/FORUMNAME/

:)

Config file is empty prior to setup!

It is usually set to the cpanel account password. Try that.
Nope sorry, as i said in my other post, the user control panel pw does not work nor is there anything in the config.php so what i was saying is one needs to create a new user with a pw and assign that user to the xmb1 db. Then it works!

Try deleting it and starting over. It should be the account password. If it doesn't work than it must be a bug.
