Had to comment out ‘return false’ to get install to work
I’m sure this ISNT the proper solution, heh, but since it worked I thought I’d point it out.
After Step 1 failed many times, I set out to debug it. My travel took me here:
$this->$dbhname = @mysql_connect( $server->host, $server->user, $server->pass, true );
That was failing and returning false everytime. I couldn’t figure it out. I printed out the hose and user and password, and it looked good. I could connect just fine from a shell prompt.
After confirming that it actually WAS connecting, and that it was simply the lack of $this->$dbhname that was causing the failure, I just commented out the return false; and VOILA! It worked! Installation finished and I can post messages, etc, etc, everything seems fine.
Soooo… What’s up with that?! hehe. $dbhname was == ‘dbh_local’.
Not sure what other details I can provide. Just thought I’d share the rather strange experience and oddness that I’d have to hack the db_connect code to get the install to complete… Weird!!
