    Hey there, wanted to know the procedure to make a wordpress page link the latest forum posts from a phpbb forum existing in another server.

    Thanks!

    G'day,

    Tick the box labelled "Enable Insecure Database Connection" and save. When the page reloads you will see extra options.

    Hope that helps :)

    I'm in the same situation.
    I have ticked the "Enable Insecure Database Connection"

    I have entered all the info it's asking, but somewhere I'm not doing it right because I get "Database Error. Connectivity to phpBB failed. See README for help".

    I have consulted the readme file, but I didn't find anything helpful there.
    I would be very glad if someone could help me.

    Hello,
    Have you confirmed that there's connectivity?

    From the CLI of your WordPress server can you connect to the DB...
    mysql -h SERVER
    where SERVER is the name or IP of your mysql server

    Cheers,
    Nick
