1.7.6 Installation Problem

During the first Installation i can´t click on the “use existing database”. When i click, nothing happens.

The options change. You then need to fill in the details for your existing empty database (hostname, database name, user and password). You can then proceed.

I’m having this exact issue with 1.7.8.

  • All pre-reqs are ticked (bar “Large File Uploads”)
  • I deleted all files and re-extracted to confirm no errors.

Clicking "Use an existing database leads me to mywebsite.com/install.php#existing, this page looks identical to install.php#new. (still requesting Admin Username & password).

Leading to error “Could not connect to MySQL with the administrator details. Please check and try again. Error Message = [SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No such file or directory]”

My webhost requires databases be setup elsewhere and so I do not have root details to create a db via this GUI.

Any idea how to get around this?

I have the same problem… I’m trying to make first installation on hosted server - I don’t have mySQL admin password.
When I try to click on “Use an existing database” nothing changes except url… now I have xibo/install.php#existing instead of xibo/install.php#new.

What could be wrong? is there any way around?

all the best
