I am using JForum software, I have customized and using it. Now I have the backup and trying to use it on another laptop. I forgot my database and admin details.

I have used the credentials that has been stored in mysql.properties file, but I couldn't install it again in my system.

That's all rather vague. What exactly is the problem?

Assuming you have admin rights on your database you can change the password for the user. Or create a new user with access to the database and use that.

The problem you have isn't with JForum. The problem you have is that you've forgotten the database credentials. I'm suggesting that you either reset the password of the db user you have, or create a new one to access your database. Assuming you have user creation rights on your database this should be a trivial task for you since you've done it before.

After minimal searching I found this -> https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/set-password.html that looks to explain what you need.

In your mysql.properties do you have values for:

database.connection.dbname
database.connection.username
database.connection.password

Do you know how to administer a mysql database? I assumed you had setup the database for the original JForum installation so would know how to do these things.

"But I couldn't login with this" is not enough information. Exactly what is the problem here? Does the database exist? Does the username exist? Is the password incorrect? Please be very specific about what errors you are seeing.

It looks like you either don't have a database installed on your system, or the database isn't running. This has nothing to do with JForum and I recommend you refer to the documentation for whatever database you wish to use, say MySQL, to get that set up.

Search engines are a great resource. A simple search for "MySQL Documentation" yields: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/.
