inc/config.php will have your database info if you already installed MyBB.

If this is during install then you surely have the wrong information for the database.

Mysql shows the host is localhost,but it doesn't work,then what's my Database Server Hostname is?

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 'localhost' with the supplied username and password. Are you sure the hostname and user details are correct?
Once the above are corrected, continue with the installation.

Why are you responding to this 6 months after the last post in this thread?

Why did you change your username?

Technically, you created a new MyBB.com account. Why?

What was wrong with the VaneHD username?
