I've hard time to make Drupal work on IIS Microsoft server. I've succesfully run Joomla on the same server so I'm pretty sure the following information are correct:
databaseName = servername_databasename
I've set the following line in settings.php file:
$db_url = 'mysql://user:[email protected]
but what I get is this:
If you are the maintainer of this site, please check your database settings in the settings.php file and ensure that your hosting provider's database server is running. For more help, see the handbook, or contact your hosting provider.
I don't get any other error message such as: database doesn't exist, user/pass wrong.. just this.
The database is running, I can access with phpmyadmin.
I've tried both "mysql" and "mysqli". The host is a private server (IIS Microsoft), the database is Mysql
The database and website files upload have also been succesfull.. so I dunno what to do to fix this issue.
