Hi,

I have just installed iRedMail but it keeps giving me database connection errors, on RoundCube and iRedAdmin.

Where should I look for? There are no databases related to iRedMail on my system, but iRedMail was installed.

Thanks!

Is mysql server running?

Did you install iredmail on a fresh server?

What version of mysql-server are you running?

if it's a new server, it's recommended to re-install server os then reinstall iRedMail again.

@pathetic and @skorzen,

I use LDAP as a backend, but have installed with no issues on Centos 6.5 several times.

Please confirm you are installing on a FRESH server.

Is mysql server running?  (# service mysqld status)

What version of mysql-server are you running?  (# rpm -q mysql-server)

@annonman,

Confirmed, I used fresh server from oven.
MySQL installed by iRedMail is mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.71

Thanks for reply

I would try connecting from the command line using the login credentials to see if you can connect.

mysql -u [your_user] -p

you can use iredmail.tips to get the information, or look at your your config files for user / password combinations.

Was there any error message during iRedMail installation? (i'm sorry i asked this question too late, i guess you didn't save the terminal output at all. my fault.)

@annonman gave the right direction, please check MySQL username/passwords first. If all username/passwords are ok, then please update Postfix/Dovecot/Roundcube/Amavisd config files to use correct credentials.

Hi All,

Just FYI,

Before I have installed twice in fresh server with not success, but in third times installed with success.
I don't know what the problem is, cause I did with same step.
