OCS Database connection failed

  • Greetings everybody

    I've just installed a fresh I-DOIT 1.48 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and ran into some problems connecting to our OCS 2.1 RC1. Running on a seperate server, the OCS has been in use for some years now without any trouble. To connect the i-doit I created a user in MySQL on the OCS server and allowed external access. This configuration seems to be allright, because I can login and obtain data when I connect from the I-Doit Server Command Line:


    root@xxxx:/var/www/html# mysql -u idoit -p -D ocsweb -h
    Enter password:
    Reading table information for completion of table and column names

    2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

    But when I configure these settings into i-doit GUI I get an error: "Could not connect to OCS database"

    Is there a detailed log file to figure out the reason causing this error? Are any special rights need for the MySQL connection?

    Thanks in advance - any help is much appreciated 🙂

  • Hi,

    I got the same error on multiple installations and couldn't figure out the problems causing it.


  • Unfortunately when I copy the Database from the OCS Server to the local Database on the i-doit installation it works like a charm. But thats not a practicable solution.

    Furthermore I can't figure out how to specify the connection OCS-Object<-> i-doit Object in the GUI. Some Information isn't passed at all like the User in OCS.
