Could not connect to MySQL.

Im trying to run the wizard to install solo but it keeps saying cant connect to mysql. If I add the same details into config.php it works and goes to login page - so I think there is a bug. However I cant login because I didnt set up username and password. Do you have a complete demo config file to use so I can bypass the wizard?

I don't think it is a bug in the form, that big a bug doesn't last long before we figure it out.
  1. Make sure you are not picking up a leading or trailing space on any of the fields in the form.
  2. Don't use a "complex" password. By that I mean use only a-z, A-Z and 0-9 characters. Accented and high characters can cause problems when saving them to the database.
