I’m trying to make a Joomla! 3 install on Local but on creating the db tables I get:
Could not connect to the database. Connector returned number: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"
The reason for this is that I have a Joomla site I like to migrate to WP and I want to work on it locally rather then the live site.
I created a Local WP site, removed all files under app/Public and unzipped the Joomla-3.10.12 file packet there.
First installation page comes up fine and submits ok to page 2 but there I run in to trouble and get error.
Operating System (OS) and OS version:
Host is Windows 10
tried with both nginx and apache, Php 8.1.9 and 8.2.8
also mysql 5.7 and 8.0.16
all same result
I checked the log files but couldn’t find anything relevant. I have only dealt with this today 12 Aug
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
