http://phpbb.com

Check the requirements. Your domain host needs to support php and mySql database.

Before I or anyone answers, is this information your domain host provider is asking to create the database? Or is that a current configuration question with phpBB2 (current version) -- I'm uploading it now myself and gettting ready to mirror an older version with the new one.

Well then your Database Server hostname should be http://www.yourdomain.com (or whatever) -- However, more often than not the default is "localhost" and it usually works.
Database name is whatever you named your database when you created it.
Username and password are obvious.
The default prefix for tables used to be phpbb. Not sure about the newest version though. My files are almost uploaded, so I'll try to see what happens. My task is different than yours. I'm not starting a new forum, I'm trying to mirror an existing one so I can revise it. I'll let you know if I see anything helpful to the post, but that's the best I can do at the moment.

I see the screen now. Yep -- leave the database server hostname as localhost.
