I am trying to setup phpbb2 on my mac to be served over personal web sharing... I have the folder installed to the sites directory I want it to live in and have installed MySQL... the problem lies in the fact that when i go to the install.php file, it asks for my database name, user name and password. I don't know this information. How can i find it?

Thanks in advance,

CM
