Install Fine / "Let's Continue" - Not
« on: September 15, 2004, 11:59:01 pm »

I just installed the latest "stable" version on my server and the install went just fine. I came to a screen that had a button that said "Let's Continue" and my guess was that it was going to take me to the admin page, where I could start setting up my gallery.

I clicked on said button and was brought to the following:

Coppermine critical error:
Unable to connect to database !

MySQL said: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. I am new to this stuff.

looks like you haven't filled in the proper mySQL data on the install page, or your include folder isn't writable for the script. CHMOD as suggested in the coppermine docs, then try to run the installer once again (making sure you have the proper mySQL data available).

negative. I went through and CHMODed the folders and all sub's therein, then deleted the install.lock file, deleted and created a new DB, ran the installer and everything went well...until I get to that button. same error.

Ok, I have tried everything under the sun. Everything your instructions have told me to do, on two different machines/ both PC and Mac, and still nothing.

While I thought your demo was sweet...this just isnt happening.

Did you make sure that you created a user and granted that user access privileges to the database?

yes, I gave that user admin rights.
funny thing is that it connects to the database during the install...or so I am guessing because it creates a table in the DB...but then I get the error that it cant connect after the set up?! What's up with that? I dont think its my database, my phpBB and OScommerce are using it just fine.

I am so frustrated with this thing, and would love to get it to work. I just dont think it's going to happen.

sleestak, for future reference, you should provide the complete URL so people can just click the link to go directly to the page without having to click around, or type into the address bar.

sleestak, are you webhosted or self-hosted? The error message
Quote
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
usually indicates there's something fishy with your server setup, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Can_not_connect_to_server.html
If you're webhosted, ask your webhost for support.

I bought a large chunk of server space through ixwebhosting.com
From my cPanel it says the location of mySQL host is:  mysql2.ixwebhosting.com and it also gives me an IP. Since the default "localhost" didnt work, I tried using this address with no success; the install runs fine, then everything else bombs out on me.

I dropped a ticket into the support desk to find out if perhaps they have another path for me to use, or some other solution to get that socket  connection going. Hopefully they will have some info for me to go on.

Thanks for your help, people. I really appreciate it. Will keep you posted on what I hear from them.

WOW, talk about fast. Within 5 minutes of dropping that ticket, they installed it for me! Turns out the host address needed to be set to "mysql2.openhost.com"

thanks again! hopefully I wont be bothering you anymore.   ;D

I got the exact same problem with my install, now I just dont get what you mean with installing the host....on my Cpanel I have the option to "add access host", localhost is already there and whan I type in mysql2.openhost.com in the install page of coppermine it just tells me it couldnt connect to the database. Even if I add host in my Cpanel and type in mysql2.openhost.com and add it, it still dont work.  Do I need to get my hostservice to add it?

I might add that I get the very exact error message as the  one stated above with one exception, min says the following at the bottom:

"Coppermine critical error:
Unable to connect to database !

MySQL said: Access denied for user: 'gyllengr@localhost' (Using password: NO)"

as suggested above: this is not a coppermine issue, but a server setup issue. I don't know cpanel, never used it - so I can't support it. See above post: contact your webhost for support.
