Sounds like either the root folder or the setup folder aren't writable


Check that, then try again.

Subject: [Xerte] MySQL errors when installing Xerte


Hi All,


I'm currently trying to install the Xerte online toolkit on a Ubuntu
Server VM when I click the last next on the install wizard I get a page
full of MySQL errors: ...has failed due to Access denied for user
'www-data'@'localhost' (using password: NO)I'm not quite sure where it's
getting these details from as I did set a MySQL password during install
and I entered it in the Xerte wizard. I'm sure I'm doing something
fairly daft.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
