  • Unable to select database

    I received the following error after installing GTD.

    "Unable to select database '' - check your db setting in config.php!'

    I receive this when browsing to http://myhost/GTD/install.php I also receive it when connecting to http://myshost/GTD/

    Any help is appriciated.

    All the configurations look good.

      Hmm, I'm running GTD on Suse, mysql, pmwiki, php etc. After insatlling these products i then installed GTD. The step I'm on in the installation is to go to http://myhost/GTD/install.php. This is where I receive the error, does this make sense?'

          Maybe he means a web software package (like Tracks)? That would make sense given the db comment.

            GTD is a task management method. It is implemented by a wide range of different software programs. Which one are you attempting to install?

            Without more information, we can't help you.

              I'm guessing it is GTD-PHP (http://www.gtd-php.com/)

              The install docs are here: http://www.gtd-php.com/Users/Install08

              Did you set up your MySQL instance, create the database for the application, then edit config.php?

              I don't have this installed, nor have I ever used it. But I will say that the installation instructions appear to be concise and well-written.

                Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to this. I installed a wiki that uses GTD as an add on. What is the best way to use GTD, I have a linux system with mysql and apache?

                  The best way to use GTD is without a computer at all. Index cards rule!

                    It does seem to be straight forward. I did follow the instuctions. There are very few steps, I'm sure it's something simple that I'm doing. I've been through the installation a few times with the same results as posted in my first post.

                      First check if MySQL is running. I bet it isn't. Its a b*tch, usually.

                        I need to get this back to the top. I'm still having the same problem. Any other ideas?
