problem with installation - connecting to MySQL server

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

I can't install the new version and this error on the database seems very strange

In fact, if I put the data with the correct database name I receive an error that it cannot connect to the server while if I put a wrong database it tells me that it has connected but cannot find the database

Can anyone help me?

Thank you

There is an option to check database is connected successfully using the host, username and password details. If it shows a green message then only we can proceed with the installation process. The manually creating database should not be the issue. You can check details using database management tools adminer link => https://www.adminer.org/


You can try PHP mySQL connection with below script


$servername = "localhost";
$username = "username";
$password = "password";

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password);

// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {
  die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
echo "Connected successfully";
