Sql password/Makefile


#1

Hi,

I’ve copied the rt database and rt directories to a new machine (redhat
7), and am trying to upgrade rather than install fresh. One question,
I’m getting mysql errors in the apache log… I just realized that of
course, I don’t have a user “rt” in the mysql database. Ok, so I can
create a user “rt” in mysql, but do I have to set its password to the
same password specified in the Makefile (RT_MYSQL_PASS)?

Thanks,
-Neil

You’ll want to run the last several steps of “make database” from RT’s
makefile by hand.

Argh, database is already created though… I’m trying a fresh install
instead. However, DBADMIN_MYSQL_PASS_STRING is getting strung into the
mysql command appended to the -p when I try “make install”:

make: [database] Error 127 (ignored)
/usr/bin/mysql -h localhost -u root -pMyRootPassword rt < etc/schema

Why isn’t a spaced character being inserted in between -p and
MyRootPassword?

Thanks for your help.
