Cannot install with MySQL

Post by jorus89 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 7:03 am

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to get a test setup of TimeTrex working on XAMPP before I deploy it on any server, mainly to see if it's suitable for the purposes I need it for.

I''ve downloaded the ZIP version of TimeTrex and I'm attempting to do a manual install using MySQL, when I head to the /interface/install/install.php page to start the installation process, I am given the error: MySQL is not supported. (Database type must be "postgres" in timetrex.ini.php)

Here is my database section of timetrex.php.ini:

Code: Select all

type = mysql

host = localhost
database_name = timetrex
user = timetrex
password = "password123"
Does the community edition only work with postgresql? Or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance,

Correct, PostgreSQL is the only database TimeTrex works with.
