Upgrading from 1.2.16 to 2.24.1

Post by pbassi »

Hi everybody,

I am back to my task of trying to migrate Mantis from our current version 1.2.16 to the new version 2.24.1.
I copied the old instance on a new server and manged to get it up&running on the new server.
Then I followed the instructions to perform an upgrade from an existing instance on the new server. The Mantis instance on the old server is working fine and will be stopped as soon as the new version on the new server will be also working.
By running the install.php I get the error:

BAD Does administrative user have access to the database? ( No such file or directory )

The MySQL DB, which is called "bugtracker" is on server under /mysqldata/mysql.
I specified localhost for Hostname (of the DB server) and I gave a user with root privileges on mySQL
I don't know if the problem is, that installation can't find the DB under the /mysqldata/mysq path.
I looked for help on the Forum but did not find any post, which could help me.

Do you have any Idea about how I could solve this problem?

Thanks in Advance
