Installing OctoberCMS on localhost is just like installing anywhere, assuming you have already setup php and mysql server install. Another option is to use the Homestead box for Vagrant which is much more reliable vs WAMP or other server installs on Windows.

I suspect your issue is that your mysql port should just be the default 3306. Also, afaik the login is required. I believe you would have created this during your install of MySQL.

This is an open source project and all support is given by our community of volunteers, please be polite and patient when asking for help.

Port 3306 by default. Login User: Root Login Password:'' (empty string but don't put the quotes)

OK - this is what is working. Thanks a lot :)

  • Database Type: MySql
  • MySQL Host: localhost
  • MySQL Port: 3306
  • Database Name: myDbName
  • MySQL Login: root
  • Password (leave empty):

MAMP will eventually give you trouble along with Vagrant and even homestead. I fought with them for too long then I found Valet and my problems went away. Guide for setting up October with Valet https://leaderinternet.com/blog/how-to-install-october-cms-localhost

After coming back from a year of no development on my October project, I am back and everything is so complicated now. All the tutorials they put out are garbage. I've tried MAMP and Laragon and THEY DON'T WORK. I am going to try Laravel(Valet) next and try my luck with that.
