So, I have tried a fresh install of OCMS on:
- My MediaTemple Gridserver (where, even though MT claims the latest version of PHP it is possible to have running in my account is 5.5.35, install.php still checks OK on "PHP version 5.5.9 or greater required," which seems suspect).
- A MAMP-based localhost environment on my iMac running OSX El Capitan.
I have tried with two possibly different install_masters: one downloaded on 7/12/16, and one downloaded just tonight.
I have an empty database with the same name set up in both locations, and also a user with the same name granted all privileges on that db in both places.
First I tried selecting a project id from my October account page, but that died after everything was unpacked. This was the error on MediaTemple:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
I thought the phrasing of that was odd, as I wasn't using "localhost" as the db host, but rather the internal URL that MediaTemple supplies. In any case, I switched gears and tried to set the same thing up on my actual localhost via MAMP (running PHP 7.0.8), still associating the same project id. This time the MySQL error was:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Now this is just plain wrong. Yes, I'm using localhost, but the user was NOT root and I DID enter a password. Something seems rather awry with your "stable" installer. And yes, I also tried both locations AGAIN, this time selecting a "from scratch" installation, and I got the same errors in each location. What gives, exactly? I have never had problems with the installer at any point in the past, and I've set up multiple installations in both of these same host locations without issue, following the same setup steps...
I am experiencing this right now. I am on a MediaTemple Grid account. My previous install was perfect. Not sure what to do. Did you ever get this resolved?
@billyzduke PHP 5.5.35 is a greater PHP version than 5.5.9. 26 versions greater to be exact :)
