osTicket v1.10 (stable) and Maintenance Release v1.9.15 are now available! Go get it now
I am really new to Osticket, I've downloaded the latest version and proceeded to setup, however I seem to have an issue connecting to the database during the setup process.
I have struggled with it for a few hours now and can't resolve the problem.
Please can someone help ?
The message I get from the Osticket installer states
Unable to connect to MySQL server. Access denied for user: 'dbo495769641@localhost' (Using password: YES)
I have written some php to test these settings from the root Osticket directory on the server as follows and this executes fine saying all is OK.
mysql_connect("localhost", "dbo495769641", "1234567") or die(mysql_error());
echo "Connected to MySQL<br />";
mysql_select_db("db495769641") or die(mysql_error());
echo "Connected to Database";
I've also created a php.ini file as follows in the osticket home directory which is being picked up
mysql.default_socket = /tmp/mysql5.sock
mysql.default_port = 3306
The hosting company is 1and1, not sure if that helps ...
The database details they provide are as follows
dname = db495769641
db user= dbo495769641
password = 1234567
hostname = localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock
I am using
PHP Version 5.2.17
Mysql version 5.1
Any ideas where I can going wrong.
Thanks in advance.
