I am installing magento for the first time on my localhost, and I'm having trouble at database configuration step. I am installing the CE 1.7 version.
These are my settings:
When I click on continue, it reloads the same page instead of going to the admin page. I took the sample data for this magento version and created mysql database with above mentioned name, and created a new user, gave the user permissions for that db, before this step. Also, I set permissions 777 to the magento directory, but still no use. Tried all the steps mentioned here, but still getting the same error. I have restarted mysql, php-fpm, but still getting the same error.
I'm running on bitnami nginx stack. I will provide the conf files if you want. Please help!
