The e-commerce.

Connecting to MySQL

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

I am having problems installing OsCommerce as I cannot seem to get a connection from PHP to MySQL.

 

I can run MySQL and can, from the command line prompt, look at the databases and tables.

 

However, if I run a simple PHP script it doesn't connect to MySQL.

 

And OsCommerce is having the same problem.

 

Also, on the install page I have only red exes on the PHP extensions tick boxes. Do I need to have green ticks here?

 

I would like to completely unistall MySQL and start from scratch with it. However, when I tried to do this the new installation still had data from the old incarnation - including the root password.

 

How do I completely remove MySQL and start from scratch?

 

Best Regards,

Dave Slater,

Dublin
