Install help - database connection problem


#1

Hi,
I’m working on a couple of things. First, I’m using FreeBSD, and
couldn’t get the install to work, so I decided I’d go on and make an rt port
for FreeBSD. Thats gotten me a lot further than I got before. Now I’m running
into an internal server error, it appears that mysql is not recongnizing my
passwort for the rt user. I have taken care to put the password in the right
place on in the makefile, and double checked that it’s right, but it still
won’t connect. Are there any reasons why rt shouldn’t be able to connect if the
password is in the Makefile and correct?

I’ve done a couple installations on FreeBSD-3.1 and 3.3, the only thing
that held me back was forgetting to use gmake instead of make like it says
in the instructions.

I did notice that the latest mysql from the ports tree runs as mysql by
default instead of root. I stuck to using root since I was just moving
my RT installation from one machine to another and I’m running Bugzilla
on the same machine, so I didn’t want to change anything.

I’m probably going to do a migration to FreeBSD 4 real soon now.
Which FreeBSD you trying to install on?

I did an install of 1.0-CVS on FreeBSD-3.4-STABLE today, and apart
from needing to use gmake, the installer attempts to 'chgrp root’
some files, which doesn’t exist on FreeBSD (root user is in the
wheel group).

I actually had a problem with a wierd password for mysql, since
it isnt escaped by perl I think, and wierd characters like $ get
parsed, which could be your problem. Try a simple one like "test"
with no special characters and see if that works.
