Can't connect to MySQL: port missing
Just a message to help someone who have the same issue than me.
I moved my website to another hosting and it can't connect to the database. I get the error:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can't connect to MySQL server
After some search, I found that the MySql port is not the default.
So I changed manualy my config file "database.php" to set the port:
'server' => 'newdbserver',
'port' => '34923', (<-added line)
( or, if you want: 'server' => 'newdbserver;port=34923' )
Perhaps it's an improvement for the installation of C5: add a field for the port and store it in the config file.
So your "server" would actually be "newdbserver:34923" possibly? This is a pretty common syntax for hostnames, and I wonder if it would have taken care of your issue without having to invent a workaround.
Yes I try, but I get the error:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Unknown MySQL server host 'newdbserver:34923'
So, I simply add the new port line in the config file.
I also see in the file "\concrete\src\Database\Driver\PDOMySqlConcrete5\Driver.php" that the port is added with ";port=34923;" instead of ":34923".
