First of all, I want to express my appreciation for the quality and sophistication that has been developed into Mantis. After spending a few weeks struggling with Bugzilla to no avail, Mantis was like a nice cold beer on a hot afternoon. ;-) This is a very impressive development effort.
The only problem I am having with Mantis is likely related to my ISP’s restrictions on database names. All MySQL database names must be prefixed with the user’s domain name using underscores and a hyphen, for example:
When I setup Mantis to use “mantisdb” as its database name on my home Linux machine, it works just fine. When I install it on my ISP’s servers or my home Linux machine with the required database prefix naming, it looks like this:
When I try to access the installation either on my home Linux machine or the ISP, I get this:
Fatal error: 401 in /var/www/html/mantis/core/database_api.php on line 86
I suspect this is caused by the hyphen “-“ in the database name? Is there a way around this problem? Unfortunately I am locked into using this naming convention, so any alternative name that does not include it is not possible…D’OH!
Thanks in advance. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
