Is there a workaround for installing WITH a db already created?


#1

Hello,

My server will not allow me to set the permissions for the install script to access the admin to create the database. Is there a way to run the install script and pass this part of the install adding or telling piwik the credentials already?

Thanks for any help or advice on this,

Paul

if the DB is already created, Piwik will not try to create it again

So on the Create a DB page do I just leave all that info blank? Cause I cannot seem to get past that part.

Thanks Matt for the help on this,

never mind, I figured it out.

I put in the username and pass the username and pass to the db I created. I thought it was looking for my admin to my server.

Hope this helps someone,

Paul
