XAMPP Problems with MySQL-DB and Joomla

Postby svenzon » 17. August 2008 21:31

I Have downloaded and installed XAMPP 0.7.3 for MacOSX 10.4.11 four times now. The Installation completed without problems, i consulted the specific XAMPP installation guide for Mac: http://www.apachefriends.org/de/xampp-macosx.html

Problems arise when i try to make a new database or when i try to install joomla 1.5.6 and i follow the joomla-configurationprocess in my browser.

I can't connect to the database: The Joomla-error-msg:
#Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

I found out and i corrected the passwords - because joomla needs a db with passwd.

I found a posting from gwpowell: http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?t=30352 which i followed exactly and i arrived creating a new database in phpmyadmin !

But it doesn't work with joomla, i didn't arrive linking the database, its :x

And the console-error-msg is now, when i try to start mysql:
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/bin/mysql.server: line 159: kill: (5593) - No such process

the status in the XAMPP-Panel:
Common Gateway Interface (CGI) AKTIVIERT
Server Side Includes (SSI) AKTIVIERT

status in security-panel:
Diese XAMPP-Seiten sind nicht über's Netzwerk erreichbar: SICHER
MySQL ist nicht über's Netzwerk erreichbar: SICHER
Der phpMyAdmin-Benutzer pma hat kein Passwort: UNBEKANNT
MySQL-root hat kein Passwort: UNBEKANNT
Das FTP-Passwort wurde geändert: SICHER

I read a lot of FAQs but i can't find a way ...
