20.04 installation on CentOS 8

Post by root » Tue Sep 22, 2020 9:09 pm

Hi,

Does anybody did a fresh installation on CentOS 8? The installer stucks after entering the database details. DB user and database are created but no tables.

TIA,
Roy

What do you mean by stuck? Do you get any output in the console? If not, please start OpenEMMInstaller with option "-debug" and try again.

At which step of your installation has the problem happened?

Hi,

I enter all database connection details, save them and enter the mysql root password.
This is the result:

Code: Select all

Changes saved.

Database and user do not exist and cannot be created. Please create database and user yourself.

Current configuration changes or updates need the OpenEMM system to be restarted.

Current menu: Change database configuration (dbcfg)

Database configuration for openemm:
 dbms = mariadb
 host = localhost
 jdbc-connect = jdbc:mariadb://localhost/openemm?zeroDateTimeBehavior=convertToNull&useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF-8
 jdbc-driver = org.mariadb.jdbc.Driver
 name = openemm
 password = xxxx
 user = openemm

Please choose entry name to change (Blank => Back):

The database was created but not the user. I also created the user manually. But the database is never populated with the required tables.

The database is created when you install the OpenEMM frontend.

Thank you, this was the tip I did not properly catch from the manual.

Now I'm stuck with the backend, let me see how this goes.
