Hello from Ireland. I just got around to the install tonight after my wowBB server gave me the proper path to the Imagemagick mogrify file. But step 3 in the install gives me this mesage;
Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /home/goldwing/public_html/photopost/install.php on line 547
I cannot connect to the PhotoPost MySQL server. [host:$host][mysql_user:$mysql_user][mysql_password:$mysql_password]. Check your config-inc.php for the correct settings and rerun.
I want to have Photpost use my wowBB registration system and I'm unsure if I have the configuration page filled in properly, so I need to ask these questions;
1. PhotoPost Database User; it says root. Should this be something else? 2. User Database Host (enter same info as above if not integrating with a third party forum); As I want to use the WOW registration, what do I enter here?
Yes your photopost username password and database name must exist. The user information would be the same as your wowbb config. You can use the same info for photopost as wowbb. The photopost tables would be prefixed with pp_ by default so there is no conflicts using the same database.
Forgive my ignorance on this Chuck. I'm still unsure of what haven't put in properly. This screengrab shows the info I typed in the install form (I've deleted the passwords from the screengrab for obvious reasons);
