I'm installing Magento version 220.127.116.11 on an Ubuntu VM, hosted in Azure - I'm getting "Database connection error" in the Magento Installation Wizard.
I've installed PHP & MySQL as instructed here.
In mysql, I've granted access to a userx, which is the same one entered in the wizard.
Other threads suggested (and I tried):
- Replacing "localhost" with "127.0.0.1" - didn't help
- Installing "InnoDB" - Mysql says it is default
EDIT - These are the modules I've installed:
sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
sudo apt-get install php5-mysql
sudo apt-get install php5-curl php5-mcrypt php5-gd php5-common
sudo apt-get install mysql-client mysql-server
