Xibo Database Connection Problem

Hi all,

I’m running Xibo on a Windows Server 2012r2 system using IIS sucessfully since over a year now. Today I wanted to access the webinterface I got an error saying “Database connection problem.” I haven’t changed anything since the last time it worked.

I’ve read that this might has something to do with expired mysql passwords, but I can login to the mysql cmd without a problem.

When trying to access xibo maintenance I get this: “Database connection problem. SQLSTATE[HY000] [1862] Your password has expired. To log in you must change it using a client that supports expired passwords.”

I’ve reset mysql root password and also set the expiration policy to never, but I still get the same errors.

Any idea on how to fix this?

Thanks a lot in advance,

nevermind. Upgraded mysql to a newer version and reconfigured it. Works again.

Glad you got it sorted. Xibo almost certainly won’t be connecting as the root user, but as a user you configured during installation, so changing the root password wouldn’t have made any difference.
