MySQL Database Connection & Creation Error Installing DotProject
Posted on 2008-06-13
Overview: I am installing dotproject software locally on my Vista machine. I'm running the latest version of WAMP.
Problem: Cannot seem to set up the database. I have used 'localhost' and the name of my machine as the database hostname.
As localhost, the installer tries the username 'user@localhost' and returns an Access Denied error (using password:YES).
When I use the name of my machine I get: 'Unknown MySQL server host' The exact error is below.
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Unknown MySQL server host '[machine-name]' (11004) in C:\wamp\www\dotproject\lib\adodb\drivers\adodb-mysql.inc.php on line 354
What do I do to resolve this and get this working?
