Your database name, username, password and/or hostname is incorrect.

Contact your hoster to check which is the correct MySQL database name/uid/pass/hostname.

One that works :)

Your hosting provider should've given you these details when you signed up for your hosting account.

I just found out my hosting provider had a special device that automatically created phpbb boards. Cool.
