Hi all.

I am new to opencart . I am trying ot install opencart on an EC2 Amazon Linux 2 server with a mysql RDS adatbase.

Basically everything looks fine however when I try to complete the database configuration I get the following error

Code: Select all

Warning: mysqli::__construct(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'SOMEUSER'@'DBHOSTAME' (using password: YES) in /var/www/html/system/library/db/mysqli.php on line 7Warning
In the above WARNING the DBHOSTAME actually resolves to the host EC2 instances IP and not the IP of the database .

Its resolvable via nslookup and I can contact the port using nc so no issues there.

ANy suggestions would be welcome.

Many thanks

See this post: viewtopic.php?f=181&t=182436&p=668084#p668176 .

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
