      Configure the application to give the authentication iformation it requires to access MySQL server.

      To do this rename file Conf.php-distribution(in /orangehrm/lib/Confs/) to Conf.php and edit following settings. Set the following parameters

      $this->dbhost = '[IP address of MySQL server]';
      $this->dbport = '[port no, of MySQL server]';
      $this->dbname = '[orangehrm-db-name] ';
      $this->dbuser = '[username]'; //the user name of the account you created
      $this->dbpass = '[password]'; //the user name of the account you created
      $this->smtphost = '[SMTP server DNS or IP address]'; //the DNS or IP address

    This problem also happens (for me, anyway) when I fail to remember to set appropriate permissions on the database, and skip the verification step. Since I have the world's strangest dev database setup, I assumed it was just me and didn't log it.
