I have installed this board before but when i tried installing at i get "PHPbb: critical error, could not connect to the database".

I moved all the files over from local. I set all "write" permissions for config.php as it says in the instructions.

I see the "Welcome to phpBB 2 Installation" page and I am choosing:
mysql3.x for basic

Am i supposed to put something into the database configuration other than the localhost and prefix entries which are already there?

Am I supposed to upload or create a mysql database?

yes, you must create a database, and use the username, password and hostname when installing the phpbb forum.

most of the time localhost will be localhost, if that dont work try as the localhost. but you have to create the database first.
