Failed: run MySQL on a different port
by Mucke, Tobias, FCIT-F2
sorry I'm a little bit frustrated after the todays' evening. I tried to install Mediawiki 1.22.0. I succeeded with the installation for many other version before. But this time I failed. Here is how it went: the installer did not accept that I run my MySQL database on a different port. I'm quite sure that former versions of Mediawiki did. First of all I thought that the problem are missing privileges in the MySQL database but I could connect fine with mysql command line utility. For the installation my workaround was to use the default port. It just went fine as expected. After the installation I tried again to change the port number but with no success.
Any ideas? Does anybody else experience this issue too? What else could I try out?
Any help greatly appreciated.
