I am not able to connect to mysql database in joomla installation step 4:

  • host name=localhost
  • username=root
  • password=root
  • database name=joomla

But the result show that "Could not connect to the database. Connector returned number: Unable to connect to the database: Could not connect to MySQL"


If you install joomla! on localhost (on your compuer), the database does not have password (leave blank) or "msql" (without "")
