I was trying to install XOOPS to do some teaching and testing of the new version.
i've done it more than once or twice, so I don't think I've made a mistake. But towards the end of the installation, I got this error:
"Could not connect to the database server."
Is this something to do with new security since the attacks on freepgs?
Or could it be my error? And is there a way around it??
Be sure you have supplied the correct details to login to MySQL.
Double checked, and worked thorugh the wizard again. Same messgae -Could not connect to the database server. Please check the database server and its configuration.
Remember that the username/password for the database are independent from the ones you use to login to your account. You also need to create a database before trying to use it.
You can see a list of the databases you created here (http://system.freepgs.com/options.php?sec=viewdbs) and, if you had not already done so, you can create a new one here (http://system.freepgs.com/database.php).
