Error When Trying To Install

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have set up everything as per instructions and changed the file permissions, when I add the database information and click continue I get the following error message:

 

MDB2 Error: connect failed
connect: [Error message: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)] [Native code: 2002] [Native message: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)]
Installation failed to create the database DM_13667_revive_3
 
Any ideas?

This is  what I get.. See attached file.

I manually set up MySQL db. "Database will be created if it does not exist" what's that all about? I have other apps where the db's were created automatically and manually with no problems. Any suggestions??

1) Did you grant full SQL privs to the mysql user you specified

2) are the username, password, and database name you specified correct. Open a shell and try connecting to the database from the command line to test your parameters:  mysql -umyusername -pmypassword mydatabasename

3) The host is usually 'localhost.'  If you specify a remote host, your host needs to be specified in that server's remotehosts for mysql or it will not be allowed to connect.
