I am having a similar problem that shawyn "Help with initial setup" is having.
I am running Centos 5.5, apache, mysql 5.
I have a joomla site and a moodle site running flawlessly on this machine.
I placed the openit folder in my /var/www/html ….. created a DB "myopenitdb" with a unique user.
Edited the settings.ini including this line:
Debug = True for debugging but appears to have to effect as I cannot find any debugging logs
changed permission to this settings.ini file to 777 to see if it would help
When I goto localhost/openit/tools/setup.php (as described in install doc) I get this displayed:
OpenIT Setup Error Error: Cannot connect to database. Please check database settings in inc/settings.ini
So, if someone can direct me to my mistake, I'd really appreciate the help.
Thanks, Steve K
