[RESOLVED] Installation problems

Post by Groundie » Wed Jan 17, 2007 11:11 am

When trying to install with Joomla 1.0.12 I'm getting an error which I think is related to my Mysql password. The Joomla Installer keeps telling me the provided settings aren't correct.

My password looks something like "abc|<123", some debugging learned me that Joomla only read "abc|".

The only way I could install without modifying my mysql password (and thus having to modify all other applications using that username + password) was editing all installation files and hardcoding my mysql password.

If needed I can post my server configuration.

That's a proper analysis of your problem!
background info: the form fields are probably processed by the mosGetParam function to strip it from any unwanted code.
< is unwanted, as it could be part of a HTML tag.

I would recommend to change the MySQL password temporary: change the < into _
Go on with the installation.
When it's finished, change the MySQL password in the old existing one,
and then change the password manually in configuration.php
