3.3 Database Issue

Question asked by ddougan on Apr 27, 2010
Latest reply on Apr 28, 2010 by ddougan
I've downloaded 3.3 and installed it successfully on SME Server 7.4 (a CentOS 4.7 derivative), via the command line (SME Server doesn't run X). I have configured it to use MySQL, activated InnoDB and run the start script. However, I'm getting this in the log, which appears to be a DB connection error:
