hi there i followed the instructions for the merger but i am stuck at the database the database beeing used on phpbb3 is mysql i used the dbname which i used initially for the forum creation now i get this error

Error
There seems to be one or more errors with the database configuration information that you supplied:

Could not connect to the database server at xx.xx.xx:3306' with the supplied username and password. Are you sure the hostname and user details are correct?
Once the above are corrected, continue with the conversion

I'm not necessary to provide a port. 3306 is the default port MySQL listens on. Simply use the hostname on it's own.

If that doesn't fix the issue, make sure the details are 100% correct and make sure the database user has access to that database.

well i tried both options and yes this user has access to the database using him also for webadmin console,
additional i tried something else, did export database and imported it local to my pc also installed mybb localy but then i get the following error
•The phpBB 3 database could not be found in 'phpbb_0'. Please ensure phpBB 3 exists at this database and with this table prefix.
