Some people here seem to be having a bit trouble installing SMF,]. Well I'm here to help.
First of all, if you haven't already done so, go to http://www.simplemachines.org/ and get the full version of SMF.
Now run your FTP program ( see http://www.zymic.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=59 for info on FTP)
Once you have your FTP program open upload the SMF files to your site.
Once that is done, click on MySQL database in your control panel and make a database. You can name your database anything you like as long as you remember it.
Optional: To make things easy make the database username same as your database name. (less to remember)
Now press create username with the password. (Whatever you want, but remember it!)
Now once you've done all that, go back to your SMF folder in your file manager and click edit permissions on the following files:
There will be a few boxes checked with some letters next to them. Make sure each of these files have "W" checked and click OK. Make sure that this is done to all of the above files. like so
Finally run "install.php" by doing yourname.zzl.org/wherever_you_copied_files/install.php and follow the steps! This should be pretty easy!
After all this, delete the install.php and go to your forums and do whatever you want.
Thanks , Swintell
If you have any questions please post here and I'll try to help the best that I can.

MySQL server name: localhost
MySQL username: borders-online-gaming_azz
MySQL password: *******
MySQL database name: MySQL database name:
MySQL table prefix: smf_
read all these posts with regards to shortening my user name and stuff, done all that, setup my privileges to allow me to do everything. Got all the files setup with the correct attributes through FTP. Still getting this error at the final hurdle:
Cannot connect to the MySQL database server with the supplied data.
If you are not sure about what to type in, please contact your host.
Access denied for user 'borders-online-g'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Click here to try this step again.
