The e-commerce.



Recommended Posts

I had somewhat of a disaster tonight and I had to reinstall. I've done a pretty good job of getting things up and running again but now when I try to use the config tool I get this message:


1046 - No Database Selected


select configuration_key as cfgKey, configuration_value as cfgValue from configuration




Can someone help me with this, I'd really like to go to bed sometime tonight...

Thanks for responding, I changed the values you recommended but I still got the error. Could someone take a look at my config file and tell me if I missed something?

// define our database connection

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'); <-- fill in the address to mysql server

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'CHANGEME'); <-- username on mysql

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', 'CHANGEME'); <-- password on mysql

define('DB_DATABASE', 'CHANGEME'); <-- the name of the databas

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');

define('STORE_SESSIONS', '');



change that and try again

I did try updating those fields but it didn't seem to do anything. When I posted the file I removed them for obvious reasons. :D


Does the rest of the file look ok?


I've reinstalled a couple of times but when I reach the step at the end where I choose the catalog or admin tool, I choose admin tool and get this message. The catalog works fine

rmyles - check to make sure the admin username & password for your MySQL installation (server side) are the same as what you are defining in your admin/configure.php .


Also check the priviledges for the MySQL admin, could they have changed?
