Cannot connect to the database server with the supplied data.

If you are not sure about what to type in, please contact your host.

If you created a mysql Database then you know the name of it, the password and the user name, otherwise contact your host.

i did but i got one other problem

this:

The installer was unable to access the "smf" database. With some hosts, you have to create the database in your administration panel before SMF can use it. Some also add prefixes - like your username - to your database names.
