Your installer for the latest version of smf_2-0-15 has a flaw, It doesn't use..

(1/1)

iconic420:
It doesn't use the full domain. Instead it inserts 127.0.0.1 or localhost , it make a issues with the database population stage in the installer.

Sir Osis of Liver:
The installer displays localhost as default setting.  If host uses actual server address, you have to put it in that field or SMF will not be able to connect to database.  If connection is successful, db should populate correctly.

Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen:
That is a known issue AFAIK, and not actually a bug in the installer, but an incompatibility with certain server setups. In these cases the installer fails to recognize the urls correctly, and they should be fixed manually.

actually it is a bug that was attempted to be fixed years ago but never actually fixed the issue. i think they corrected it in SMF 2.1, but it has not been back ported as we cant always duplicate the issue to confirm the fix.

Kindred:
however, there is a simple work-around/fix --- use repair_settings.php to correctly reset the domain and url settings
