Might be useful if you put a few lines about how you solved the problem for future readers searching.

 

I find this forum has a lot of help requests, Not enough solution replies or replies stating its corrected with no explaination of how.

Here's my two cents. I just went through the same problem this morning (got the same error messages, etc.). In my case, I discovered that the name & password information for the database had not been written to the includes/config.php file.

 

REASON: Turns out I had not finished the installation process!! The installation causes you to circle back around to the original dialog screen, which led me to believe that I was done, but I wasn't!

 

ADVICE: When you get back to the dialog where you started during the installation, KEEP CLICKING!! You are not done, and if you stop there, includes/config.php will not be populated with the config data you entered.

I get the same error and not sure how to fill out the following:

 

Database Server:

 

Hostame or IP-address of the database server

The database server can be in the form of a hostname, such as db1.myserver.com, or as an IP-address, such as 192.168.0.1

Username:

 

Database username

The username used to connect to the database server. An example username is 'mysql_10'.

 

Note: Create and Drop permissions are required at this point of the installation procedure.

Password:

 

Database password

The password is used together with the username, which forms the database user account.

Database Name:

 

Database Name

The database used to hold the data. An example database name is 'osCommerce'.

Persistent Connections:

 

Enable persistent database connections.

 

Note: Persistent connections should be disabled for shared servers.

Session Storage: Files Database

 

Can anyone help?
