SQL server issues

Post by JmommyWEB » Mon Jan 11, 2021 1:43 am

I was finally able to initiate the first process of the Joomla installation using MAMP. I updated the local host and the configuration process but am having issues when it comes to the database portion. The error message is "Could not connect to the database. Connector returned number: Could not connect to MySQL server." Any advice?

Hello JmommyWEB, welcome to the forum.

Have you verified the database name, user, localhost?

Thanks for the welcome and response, mjparadac. That worked! I went through MyPHP of MAMP though, because I have a Mac.
