Unable to install Joomla from script

Hi, on Virtualmin Professional 3.90 we are unable to install joomla:

Found http://joomlacode.org:80/gf/download/frsrelease/16512/72037/Joomla_2.5.1... in cache ..

Configuring webserver PHP settings .. .. already done.

Applying web server configuration .. .. done

Now installing Joomla version 2.5.1 ..

Failed to run database setup script : ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'demo.webwww.it'@'localhost' (using password: YES) .

More information on using this script can be found at http://joomlacode.org/.

.. installation was only partially complete.

Applying web server configuration .. .. done

Validation if fine on domain: demo.webwww.it All features OK

And from shell MySQL login works fine:

mysql -udemo.webwww.it -pK9m8qcS demo_joomla

Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.

Can you help me?



Howdy -- it seems to have a different password for the database account, it may have gotten out of sync somehow.

If you go into Edit Virtual Server -> Configurable settings, is the Administration password there set correctly?

Hi, yes the password is set correctly, with the password present in Configurable settings user is able to login in phpmyadmin and we can login from shell to mysql. Plus, I have re-set the password but the problem is still present, and only with Joomla. For example in the same Virtual Server we can install, via Virtualmin Install script, Wordpress, Maganeto, Drupal without problem.

We've all been a bit stuck as to what the problem is, that's a strange one!

Jamie did have one thought though -- if you go into Webmin -> Servers -> MySQL Database -> Module Config, change "Use MYSQL_PWD variable to pass password? "to "No", and then hit "Save".

After that, see if you're then able to setup Joomla.
