Windows 7 Home Premium SP1: Used latest xamp to install dependencies... (XAMP 5.6.3 / PHP 5.6.3 \ mySql 5.6.21, phpMyAdmin to 4.2.11, OpenSSL to 1.0.1j) and tiki-13.1.7z... had bookoo problems but resolved them all... used doc @ https://doc.tiki.org/Install+Tiki+on+XAMP... After 4+ hrs got to step 7 (tiki install) @ 'set the database connection' screen and got error 'Error Database `tiki`. Unable to connect to database'... rechecked all info in phpMyAdmin and info is correct... so don't have a clue...
It 'taint rocket science and a simple installation shouldn't be this difficult (just an observation ) All this to get a chance to eval. what is supposedly THE PREMIER CMS/Groupware/etc. pkg
Frustrated so thanking u in advance
