  • [Forum] Issue Installing via Godaddy

    Hi all,
    I purchased my very first license yesterday and am having an issue upon attempting to install just now.
    I edited all my information according to the Manual instructions and receive this error upon trying to complete the installation.

    Due to the following errors, the install/upgrade can not continue:
    • The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the includes/config.php file

    Error description: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '[IMG]fffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/var[IMG]ffffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/lib[IMG]fffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/mysql[IMG]ffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/mysql.sock' (2) [IMG]ffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/home[IMG]ffffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/content[IMG]ffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/35[IMG]ffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/8743835[IMG]fffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/html/forums[IMG]ffffffff/forums/install/install.php[/IMG]/includes/class_core.php on line 314
    What could be causing this?

    I got it figured out.
    I tried going through the Config file numerous time to find a mistake but I couldn't spot anything.
    Downloaded a new one and edited it and it works now.
    I must have put a space or done something wrong with the first one that I couldn't catch.
    Sorry about the post.

        FTP software or via cPanel - any issues with uploading or having access to upload really needs to be referred to godaddy
