Re: [K12OSN] Failed Moodle Install - Why ?

In my newly built test server I have installed K12LTSP 6. I am trying to install Moodle 1.8.

I have followed the instructions in the K12LTSP- Moodle Howto.

When I try to first connect to the Moodle Installation screens, in the browser, it passes all the tests.

When I get to the screen that prompts for the database name, username, password etc. I enter this information, then I click "next".

 I get an error message in red that says:

"We could not connect to the database you specified. Please check your database settings."

What am I doing wrong and how do I check the database settings?

I have entered the correct username and password.

Help!

-is the database running? (service mysqld start) or check ps aux|grep mysql
-has the moodle database been created properly?; did you see the setup script create the zillions of tables?
otherwise do:

mysql  -u root -p....and then creatate database moodle ;

GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE,CREATE,CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, DROP,INDEX,ALTER ON moodle.* TO moodleuser localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'yourpassword';

-are you running a firewall that bloacks access? (iptables -L -n and see if port 3306 is not blocked out)

euhhh
