Re : Tiki cannot find a database connection

Hi Volterra,
I'll try a few things hoping this solves your problem :

  1. Your MySQL must have some privileges on the Tiki database.
  2. Your DB settings must not contain thos characters : " " ", " ' ", "/" and possibly "$".

If it still doesn't work, running tiki.sql is half the installer's job, and you can manually create a tiki/db/local.php which is the other half. The content of this file should be documented in tiki/db/tiki-db.php. If you don't want to create local.php, and enter the settings in tiki-db.php instead, remember to delete "tiki-install.php" or change the extension for security.
