I’ve discovered Nextcloud very recently and would like to test it first on a virtual machine running on Ubuntu 16.04.1 (desktop version).
But last time I used linux was 15 years ago. I’ve tried to follow the installation guide but I’ve always got an error with MariaDB configuration.
For example, with the installation wizard, I get this error:
Error while trying to create admin user: Failed to connect to the database: An exception occured in driver: SQLSTATE[HY000] Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'
I’ve used the following entries:
Database user: root
Database password: root_password (for example, since no password was defined before)
Database name: nextcloud
Database host: localhost
I’ve looked through Internet and found several topics related to similar problems, but I haven’t found a clear and simple way to solve it. It works with SQLite, which doesn’t request database info, but not with MySQL/MariaDB.
After 2 days of unsuccessful tries, I hope someone here will give me some hints to properly install nextcloud.
Thank you in advance.
