Latest Joomla with Uniform Server and Vist and W7


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


I am new to Uniform Server and Joomla, have a little knowledge, but only enough to make me dangerous!


While trying to install Joomla, using Uniform Server, I keep getting the error: Could not connect to the database. Connector returned number: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL



I have tried a number of things, usually things that mean I need to reinstall Uniform Server, after a few attempts to do this stage of the install, I get the following message.



An error has occurred.:


Cookies do not appear to be enabled on your browser client. You will not be able to install the application with this feature disabled. Alternatively, there could also be a problem with the server's session.save_path. If this is the case, please consult your hosting provider if you don't know how to check or fix this yourself.



My cookies are enabled, I know this, and it occurs in both Firefox and IE. Can anyone shed some light on this for me. I am running two separate machines, one Vista, the other Windows 7, it happens on both. Both Uniform Server and Joomla are the latest downloads.


Thank, Jim

Yeah, when using Windows 7 you should use Carbo 6.0.X for best support.


Also, Windows Vista/7/2008 got support for IPv6 by default, this means localhost is considered an IPv6 address and is something totally different than


(Unless you add localhost to the hosts file).
