From a newbie on Backdrop CMS using the following setup:
- Windows 10 Home
- Backdrop v1.21.4
- Apache 2.4.53
- PHP 8.1.5
- MySQL/MariaDB 10.4.24
I have changed the mysql root password and also tried other changes but error persisted:
- specified 'localhost' on Database host
- specify/changed root:password in the settings.php
- reverted to previous backdrop versions back to v1.21.1
Though I have some experience installing Drupal 6/7 sites, I am not sure how to fix this error. Appreciate any help for a Backdrop newbie. thanks.
I've never seen this type of error. Have you tried creating the database first (with phpMyAdmin for example) and setting the user there, and then modifying settings.php in the Backdrop root? See https://docs.backdropcms.org/documentation/database-configuration
thanks! Creating a blank db first fixed the problem.
