Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to database
i thought I did that correctly i guess not.
ok I checked the log in and password are the same is there anything else in the configuration.php that i need to change? By the way I am testing two joomla sites one new install and on i installed on local server (My pc) and moved it all to the frihost server. I am just trying to get at least on of the two to take.
Thanks for your help.
are you sure you used the right username and database name?
On frihost the databasename starts with your admin panel username.
An error has occurred.:
Cookies do not appear to be enabled on your browser client. You will not be able to install the application with this feature disabled. Alternatively, there could also be a problem with the server's session.save_path. If this is the case, please consult your hosting provider if you don't know how to check or fix this yourself.
right after i hit next on language in the first install
i restarted the process this time the upload took now I am at the "Database Configuration" Page.
I don't want to mess this up again any help is much needed.
i installed two diferent versions of joomla one is from scratch a full install and setup and i am still stuck at the above place trying to set up admin properly. The second is a version of joomla I set up locally and have gotten further with this one only I can't upload anything in the Extension Manager. Templates or components plugins...nothing. when I try it says ...
There was an error uploading this file to the server
* JFolder::create: Path not in open_basedir paths
* Warning! Failed to move file.
What have I set up wrong?
Host Name: localhost
Username: <your-directadmin-username>_<username> (eg., titus197_dbuser)
Password: <Whatever you specify when creating the database>
Database Name: <your-directadmin-username>_<dbname> (eg., titus197_dbname)
thanks for the breakdown I Though I was doing it right now check this error out
No configuration file found and no installation code available. Exiting...
and that's right after I finished install and deleting the installation folder remember this is a new site.
What in the world could I have done now?
