    When I try to install phpBB on my server, I get a complaint that they: Could not connect to the database, see error message below.
    [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

    I tried to use the ip and then I tried to use the host name but they seem to want a data source name. I could not find this info in my control panel.

    Can anyone help?

    Never mind. I was looking at the pull down menus, and didn't see odbc in the Quick access screen. Once I found that, all was smooth sailing!
