fangbiao,

When you install jforum it should guide you through the database setup, including prompting you for the database type (hsqldb, mysql, etc.) and the necessary configuration parameters (hostname, port, username, password, etc.) to make the connection.

The jforum-custom.conf in the jforum/WEB-INF/config directory should have the following settings defined:

database.connection.host=my.jforumhost.com
database.connection.port=3306
database.connection.dbname=jforum
database.connection.username=jforum
database.connection.password=jforum

You should be able to set the host to whichever IP/hostname your database is running on. The port number will vary depending on the database you are using; 3306 is the standard MySQL port.

Hope this helps.

Every database engine has basic client to perform some queries. Try to install engine and client in one pc, test connection, then after install client in another one pc, test again connection. Later install JForum
