Unable to install Joomla on localhost

Post by roshdi » Wed May 15, 2019 2:00 am

I installed xampp server on my system with port number 90 because I have another server running on my system. Also, MySQL uses port 3308. The xampp server is running well, Apache runs correctly, MySQL runs correctly and the PHPMyAdmin also runs correctly.

But when I was trying to install Joomla 3.6, I received an error message in thes wesite: [ redacted ] "The installer was not able to connect to the MySQL server. Please make sure MySQL is running".

Note: I did not create password for MySQL.

What else am I suppose to do to get Joomla installed and running correctly?

What does that website have to do with your xampp server?
