Nondescript Install Error Message [OJS 2.4.6]

This is a new installation from the ojs-2.4.6 release tarball. It works fine on my localhost(xampp) server, but every attempt to install on production (lamp) server produces this error:

Errors occurred during installation:

A database error has occurred: No such file or directory

I have tried several different implementations (from git with and without submodules, to extracting the archive directly on the server) and I keep getting this error. It is different from error produced when the file upload dir cannot be found, so that is not the issue. But, I have no way to determine what problem is actually occurring here.

Enabled debugger options in config, no help.
Error does not even show in panel.

Hi @ChanOmegaWebDesign,

See e.g. this forum thread:

Thanks, for the info.
As it turns out the database was/is on a different server and I was trying to connect to ‘localhost’ which is why the error was thrown.
