After I successfully tried mantis on windows, my windows died.

Surprise surprise.

Now we anted to go to something better:

Kernel 2.4.20

Apache 1.3.8

PHP 4.3.8 (Static installation)

Mantis 0.18.3

Mysql 3.23.55


I set all up, the db is created I can connect to it using mysql.

When I run check.php it tells me it cannot connect to the


Username is root or mysql

Password is as typed when I use mysql from the commandline.

Port is the same. 3306

I have no clue why I cannot connect using check.php but can connect from the command line with the

same parameters
