Problem connecting - error on line 260

Post by Anette_DK » Thu Jun 23, 2022 9:15 am

Something went very wrong after I tried to install the last update. I have read about this error in line 260 but still do not understand what I can do. Please help if you can.
Here is what the FPA tells me.

The database server denied the connection request from Joomla. Check the connection details and the credentials.

Thank you for answering. Sorry to be such a bother - but I still need help.

I can access my database - and see my files in ftp programs.
I have searched the web and this site but am not sure what to do.

Bottom half of the configuraion.php looks like this:
public $session_handler = 'database';
public $MetaRights = 'Anettes.dk';
public $sitename_pagetitles = '1';
public $force_ssl = '0';
public $frontediting = '1';
public $feed_email = 'author';
public $cookie_domain = '';
public $cookie_path = '';
public $asset_id = '1';
public $proxy_enable = '0';
public $proxy_host = '';
public $proxy_port = '';
public $proxy_user = '';
public $proxy_pass = '';
public $memcache_persist = '1';
public $memcache_compress = '0';
public $memcache_server_host = 'localhost';
public $memcache_server_port = '11211';
public $memcached_persist = '1';
public $memcached_compress = '0';
public $memcached_server_host = 'localhost';
public $memcached_server_port = '11211';
public $session_memcache_server_host = 'localhost';
public $session_memcache_server_port = '11211';
public $session_memcached_server_host = 'localhost';
public $session_memcached_server_port = '11211';
public $cache_platformprefix = '0';
public $redis_persist = '1';
public $redis_server_host = 'localhost';
public $redis_server_port = '6379';
public $redis_server_auth = '';
public $redis_server_db = '0';
public $massmailoff = '0';

Looking at this I can not figure out how the configuration file accesses the database and where I should change something.

I still could not find out why the error was there - my internet providers answer was "We do not support Joomla-you might want to change to Wordpress". Now I have copied old files and installed again.
It works and I will now try to put some of the old files back and see what happens.
Thank you for trying to help.

Not recommended. The previous version of Joomla, 3.10.4, was out of date. The current version is 3.10.10. Mixing and matching files from different versions will only cause errors.

If that is th entire contents of your configuration.php file thn that was th problem. It was missing the first half of the file.
