I've read other threads about this and I don't think I'm doing something wrong. So here's what's up:
MODx Revolution =>
downloaded the advanced package (why? I'll get to that in a sec): http://modx.com/download/downloading/?id=4fa1621bf245545d3b00009d
Following this walkthrough with the precision of a scientist:
What I'm doing specifically:
----First, I renamed AND moved the /core/ directory to a safer place. Permissions set to 0755 like a boss.
(all permissions within the '<core>' directory also set to 0755 too)
----Poured thermite on the contents of the /core/cache/ directory. There were no survivors; burn in hell.
---mod_core_path stage completed.
----didn't touch the config key
----left advanced options off
----Database options accomplished.
----clicked the "Test database server connection and view collations" jazz.
Connection to db server success!
----character set collation matching utf8s.
----Brace for impact.
----Click "Create or test selection of your database."
"Checking database: MODX could not create your database. Please manually create your database and then try again."
Ok MODx, fine. I'll create a database.
----create database. check. leave contents blank. no tables. just name.
----MODX populate this noise.
feels bad man.
So. my fellow MODxers, I am at a loss. If I messed anything up, it's anything involved in the PHPMyAdmin step. How does one go about creating a database that MODx will impregnate? I don't want her to be too easy for the 31337haxxors out there to get to but I need her to do her **** job. If MODx won't do it for me, can a man get a walkthrough?
Thanks in advance.
