Looks like Tiki was unable to log into your MySQL database. * Are you 100% sure your DB information is correct?

  • If Tiki is unable to create the DB, try creating the DB first, then running the installer.

Just to close off this thread.

Having asked the web host to allow running the latest stable version of MOODLE, they migrated the doman to an environment with the Softaculous installer.

I installed version 12.3 using Softaculous without any problems and am now learning and trying out the functionality.
