I wish to install fresh magento 18.104.22.168 using the same database of magento 22.214.171.124 During installation process when I give the same database name as of magento 126.96.36.199 It shows error as"Database connection error". Is it possible to use the same old database or should I create a new one?
Answer Found. The method which I followed was correct.We can give the old database name & its details (username and password) during fresh installation to use the old database in new magento.Database error occured. But once I restarted the xampp server the error disappeared.It was that simple and that easy.
