Hello,

I recently downloaded and installed a free web forum onto my server for my website. The Forum is chipmunk boards avaiable for free online and is written in .php. I successfully configured my server and installed the package onto my website but after I log in I get this error.

"COuld not draw cookiesPHP Notice: Undefined variable: sitetitle in C:\Inetpub\celsblock\phpscript\board\index.php on line 8 PHP Notice: Undefined variable: cookiename in C:\Inetpub\celsblock\phpscript\board\index.php on line 41 PHP Notice: Undefined variable: HTTP_COOKIE_VARS in C:\Inetpub\celsblock\phpscript\board\index.php on line 41 PHP Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in C:\Inetpub\celsblock\phpscript\board\index.php on line 47 PHP Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: A link to the server could not be established in C:\Inetpub\celsblock\phpscript\board\index.php on line 47 " 

the package required some configuration with my server, my website and my sql, but on part of the configuration was to much for me. It was a part that dealt with accessing the cookies. I do not know what cookies are or how to develp or use them, How do i fix this error so that i can use my forum.
