I am trying to install the 3.3.0-8 version on my computer to see the new features. However, I am getting a database error:
A database error has occurred: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES) (SQL: create table
type_id bigint not null auto_increment primary key,
assoc_type smallint not null,
assoc_id bigint not null) default character set utf8 collate ‘utf8_general_ci’)
How can I fix this issue?
Can you log into mysql using those credentials? Or is this further along, and perhaps your root user does not have the CREATE privilege?
Hello @jnugent, I can log in with that credentials and I also tried to install it on a live website, I encountered the same problem.
in that case I’d check the mysql privileges for the root user, or (better) create a dedicated OJS user using a mysql GRANT statement that provides the necessary privileges to create tables.
Hello @jnugent ,
The user has all the privileges in both instances.
