Hi, I am trying to install Open EMR 4.2.0 on an Amazon Web Service Server. Already have Apache, PHP & MySQL setup. Someone else has installed Open EMR (that works) but I wanted to setup one as well to gain knowledge on how to do it on a server. I have done this with XAAMP on windows.
I am on step 2 requiring me to put in the information for mysql. When I put in a password I get the following error:
“Connecting to MySQL Server… ERROR. Check your login credentials. unable to connect to database as root”
When I try to change or add a password on the server (login with Putty) I get the following error:
‘Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO)’
I tried taking a look at this website for that error: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8537531/access-denied-for-user-rootlocalhost-using-password-no
Do I have to create a password for mysql to setup Open EMR? We had someone setup Open EMR so I didn’t think I would need to change any of the login information.
