Problem with CentOS 6.3 implementation of MySQL

Does anyone know what CentOS have done with the MySQL implementation?

I downloaded the latest v6.3 and installed a new server, applied all the updates, configured and started the apache and mysql servers in the same way that I did with 6.2 and then tried to install Joomla.

For some reason, Joomla doesn't 'see' a connection to the MySQL server. I've run phpinfo() and phpsecinfo and both of them can access the MySQL, but not Joomla. Joomla reports that there is no connection to the database and the database is unknown.

Have I missed something?

you might have to check the username/password privilieges for the specified database in MySQL.

Let's say that you have created in Mysql a database for joomla, named "joomla_database"
then you need to assign the username& password which will joomla use to access/write.. to that database.

Quick overview of mysql command.

Nope! Joomla 2.5.6 tells me that there is NO MySQL on the server. However, I HAVE managed to solve the problem. A colleage sent me a copy of Joomla 2.5.4 and that one works perfectly, so I suspect that the Joomla Developers have managed to completely c**k up 2.5.6 by adding more and more so-called 'security' layers so that the product becomes like Vista UNUSEABLE!

Seems it isn't yet the fault of CentOS, but I suspect they are heading in the same direction.

I just LOVE my Mac!!!
