Installation Issue - Can't Start Installer

Postby ridgedale » Sat Apr 08, 2017 5:38 pm

I've tried installing nuBuilderPro3 in my hosting account via cPanel following the instructions provided on the website without any success.
In each case I cannot start the installation process owing to the following error:
It appears your database server is not configured,
please enter a mysql database name, user name
and password into your config.php file.

There is nothing wrong with the database setup or the username and password as I can use the database to install any other PHP/MySQL based software.
Hosting configuration:
Apache Version 2.4.23
PHP Version 5.6.24
MySQL Version 10.0.30-MariaDB
Note: I have been unable to find any information about system system requirements for nuBuilderPro3.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please advise.

Update:

The local MAMP logs reveal where the problem with the installation lies. When the nuinstall.php is loaded in the browser line 52 is causing the installation failure - deprecated php extension: mysql_connect():

[11-Apr-2017 15:06:06 Europe/Berlin] PHP Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /Users/<path to local domain root>/nuinstall_lib.php on line 52
[11-Apr-2017 15:06:06 Europe/Berlin] PHP Warning: mysql_connect(): Connection refused in /Users/<path to local domain root>/nuinstall_lib.php on line 52


I'm not convinced simply changing line 52 to use mysqli_connect() instead of mysql_connect() will resolve the issue as it is likely there may be other places/files in the codebase where the same deprecated extension or other associated deprecated extension(s)/code is used.

Any thoughts on how to deal wit this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Really Admin? thats all you got?
Maybe we don't need another host, maybe we need an alternative to nuBuilder!
Try again...

Longshot - get a grip - everyone knows configuration of web environments is tricky and that is NOT specific to Nubuilder

OK, I got a grip and decided troubleshooting the mysql_connection issue is more trouble than nubuilder is worth and switched to dadabik. For those of you facing the same issue, save yourself the trouble.
