Hey dude,

For these it should be something like

Database Server Hostname / DSN: localhost
Your Database Name: yoursite_com
Database Username: yoursite
Database Password: yourpass
Prefix for tables in database: phpbb_

These could vary of course. Hopefully you already know the Database username and password one, so you can just put those in how you know them. For Database Server Hostname / DSN, localhost will usually work there. Your database name could vary as well depending on what your host assigned to you. My sites default was ozzu_com for the database name. The prefix for tables in the database should be phpbb_
