I can't believe I'm posting for help here.... lol. I've tried searching for the answer but to no avail....

New install of PHP Nuke 7.6 Patched 3.1

I can't get the database to work, I am getting the typical error

Quote:

There seems to be a problem with the MySQL server, sorry for the inconvenience.

We should be back shortly.


What I am looking for is a script that will give me the correct path to the database and the database information. Does one exist? I've tired every combination. It's all quite silly since I have installed php nuke a number of times. ^.^ Go figure - after all this time I'm having a blond moment.

Can you not just simply look at one of your previous installations?

Did that. Looked at my two other sites and old installations scripts but no combination that I save it too seems to work.

Have you checked with your host?

Sounds like either the database connection details are incorrect in config.php OR your hosts mySQL sever is down - do they have a status page where you can check that?

Turns out my password or user for the SQL database were too long for the server. I had to shorten them.
