XAMPP - root has no password and vanilla can't access the DB - solution

edited May 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I installed vanilla on XAMPP Linux, root for MySQL has NO password. Installation has worked, but after that, vanilla can't access the DB. Intresting is, that there is "Using Password: YES" to read.

Here's the Solution:
- Install vanilla normal
- Edit the ./conf/database.php file.
add after
$Configurtion['DATABASE_USER'] = 'root';
$Configuration['DATABASE_PASSWORD'] = ''; // That are no doublequote, that are two single-quotes.

Finished, Vanilla is now working correct.
