Re: DB Install Wizard -- Cannot connect to MySQL

OK, I was able to successfully complete the HMS database installation after I removed the 64-bit MySQL and replace it with a 32-bit older version (v. 5.1.56). This duplicates my currently working configuration.

Thanks mattg and Dravion for the assists.

Re: DB Install Wizard -- Cannot connect to MySQL

Negative, MySQL log shows nothing.

Pretty sure I'm using 32 bit DLL. First I tried the one from old server hms bin directory (works fine there), then the one linked in the tutorial forum. Neither works on the new Win 2012 server.

DB Install Wizard -- Cannot connect to MySQL

I'm moving an hMailServer installation (5.6-B2145) to a new server--from Win2008 R2 to Win2012 Std. I found and followed* the instructions in the tutorial forum. I first copied the libmysql.dll file from the old server to the new, then tried the newer version linked in the tutorial, both to no avail...

Re: Cannot connect to database (solved)

Problem solved:
I had to repair the user table (table was erased by the repair) and then add root/localhost/password back into the table. Once I did this, I was able to log in to the hMailSErver admin program and the mail server itself resumed normal operation.
Thanks again for your help.

Re: Cannot connect to database

I was able to connect with mysqld, and found two users named root; one with host field = '%', the other, 'localhost'. Is this normal?

Re: Cannot connect to database

I tried the suggestions at the links with no success. Whenever I try to access MySQL on port 3307, I get the 'localhost not allowed...' msg. It appears that the OP in the first link had the same result and was only able to 'solve' his problem by reinstalling software. So it looks like I'll be upgrad...
