Can't Install PrestaShop - fails on SQL connection

Recommended Posts


I'm new in PrestaShop and I tried to install it on hosted server where I still have problem with SQL connection.

After click on "Test your database connection now!"  then I got empty error message as: "An error occurred: ". Before PrestaShop I Instaled Phoenix Cart where is also necessary connect SQL database, there it was working, then I knows that SQL database name/usename/password are working propperly.

When I click on "Next" button then I got: "HTTP ERROR 500"

I already tried:

  1. Change acces rights to 775 and then to 775 - Didn't help
  2. Comment "-MultiViews" in /admin/.htaccess - Didn't help
  3. Downloaded older version "PrestaShop Stable" - Didn't help (HTTP ERROR 500 - immediateli when visit first intall page)

Please can somebody help? Any suggestion or ideas are welcome

Thanks you.

Thank you for your answer but .. is it possible be more specific with  "change cache" ?

Also I tried different table preffix and without prefix but still same result -> Error without any specification
