View Full Version : [all variants] Joomla installation step 4: (database)

December 2nd, 2010, 05:36 PM
Hello everybody,

I'm trying to install joomla.

Take a look at this:

Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

I use the following settings:

type database: mysql
name host: localhost
username: root
password: ???
naam database: joomla

Why is it not possible to connect to MySQL?

I hope someone knows what goes wrong.

Greetings Fidel

I have installed joomla many time in xampp with no problems..

Did you make a joomla data base with the phpmydamin?

User should be "root" with no password..

I had to remove the password!

Havce a nice day!

Do you also know the settings by step 5?

FTP configuration??

That would be great!

It works!

This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

The last question I have now is:

How do I enter the administrator site? (if you know what I mean?)
