cannot "verify" my MySQL database in the coldfusion Admin
Posted on 2005-04-19
i'm in need of some major help...
i'm on a mac g5 10.3...
i cant seem to get CF to verify my database, I coped the entire db folder called "SFdata" into the appropriate folder ( i think) and when i specify a DSN, then tell CF where my database is, it just doesnt seem to work...do i point it to the whole folder, a specific file, what?
/Applications/JRun4/servers/default/cfusion/squidfire/_private/sfdata/ as the path to the database.
what am i doing wrong? also, i was told that all mysql usage should be done as the root user of my computer (not the mysql root user)....is that correct??
thanks for your help!
