Unable to connect to Database
Posted by Andy Williams, Last modified by on 19 August 2006 09:15 AM
I installedÂ Joomla via HELM application pack. The install went fine. When I went to the installed url. I get error "Unable to connect to Database".
The application pack creates a MSSQL database instead of an MySQL database, during install. When the setup/install script is run, it is unable to connect to database as it is looking for a MySQL database.
Affected applications: CubeCart, Joomla, Mambo, osCommerse, PhpAdsNew, Simple Machines Forum, WordPress
Solution: Login to HELM. Goto the domain's "Database Manager" and delete the MSSQL database created there by HELM. The create a MySQL database of the same name and same user & password.
Now, goto your applications install URL and complete the setup process.
