I'm trying to install my forum for my gaming community. Every time I get to the theme installation, this shows up:
I'm using 000webhost for the website and 1&1 for the domain.

Update: Now it's showing this.
The server has lost connection to the MySQL server, which can be expected when using a free host, especially 000webhost. With hosting, you get what you pay for, and if you pay nothing, then you get, well, not a lot Smile
I fixed it. Apparently, I was doing things too quickly.
Thanks for your help!
Well, you weren't, you shouldn't have to do things "slowly" just to get it to work. You will almost certainly encounter this issue again, and my suggestion would be to pay for hosting, even if it's only a few dollars a month.
