MySQL Connection Test Error When Setting Up New Database for eCart

MySQL Connection Test Error When Setting Up New Database for eCart

I've been trying to go through the eCart Getting Started Guide, and I'm finding there to be a steep learning curve. I'm attempting to follow along with the Blue Sky Music written tutorial, but every time I try to test the MySQL Connection I get an error (see attached screen shot). Can anyone perhaps point me in the direction of the fix to this issue. Something tells me this is very basic, but I'm new to using databases and dynamic sites. Thanks

Still Getting the Same MySQL Error Message

Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm still getting the same error message when I test the database.I don't think the issue resides in defining the dynamic site, because I've followed all the various instructions very closely - the ones at the link you posted as well as in WebAssist's Getting Started Guide.

Has anyone seen this particular error message before and know how to handle it?

How did you setup your testing server? Are you sure it's running?

No. I'm not sure if my testing server is running.

That's a good question! I'm not sure that my database is running. I've attached a screen shot of my Testing Server set up in Dreamweaver for the eCart Tutorial. I've set the Testing Server Folder as /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/eCartTutorial. However, for a dynamic site I'm not sure if it should be this, or /Users/zack/Sites/eCartTutorial (this is where I normally test my sites locally), but I know I've tried both and get the same error every time I test the database.

Link to larger testing server screen shot.

Sorry, just realized there's no way you can read the text in the screen shot I upload. So here's a link to larger version. Thanks!

Once you have your server installed and running you will need to enter a URL for the location that the files will be served from. It looks like you have a file system path rite now, instead this needs to be a web address like path. Most of the time this is going to be like this:

http://localhost/<your site folder in the webroot>

MySQL Error 1045

Thanks, Eric! That took care of problem I was having, but once I got over that obstacle I found myself immediately facing the next. Now I no longer get the URL error when I test my database, but instead I get a "MySQL Error 1045" (see link for screen shot).

Any one know how to jump this hurdle?

Terminal Issues

So I think you're suggesting that I need to go through the Terminal and change my password. Can I change my password through phpMyAdmin? It seems that no matter what I type into the Terminal it says, "command not found".

I appreciate all the help as I try to get over this learning curve.
