  • Installation Error 2

    Hello everyone.

    I used config.php builder for VB5 (v1.1.3) and it worked like a charm.
    Unfortunately, I cannot go through setup due to the following error:

    Due to the following errors, the install/upgrade can not continue:
    • Error description: 2
    • 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.phpfile


    servername: localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock
    tried localhost, 127.0.0.1
    port: 3316


    I'm hosting loads of joomla websites on my server, and all of them work with this configuration. It's the config my server gives me when I create a new MySQL database.
    Why can't it connect?

    Thanks

    PS: I've used the search, but even though this problem has been mentioned before, they all did mistakes I didn't do. Mainly because they didn't use the config builder.

    Your MySQL information in the core config.php file is not correct.

      Solved:
      servername: localhost:
      port: "/tmp/mysql5.sock"
