CANNOT LOCATE DATABASE!

HI
Im trying to run some php code and it says CANT CONNECT TO DATABASE.I guess it needs the database say MYDB to be started in the SMH.Once its started, do I need to load the files in the T.Int.Interface?How can the PHP locate the database then?
Thanks
Kay

hello kay,

unfortunately i have no specific knowledge about the php api, but perhapt you can check these basic steps first:

do you have a database MYDB?
is it startet?
can you reach the database via a browser? please check in this sequence:

http://myserver/
http://myserver/tamino
http://myserver/tamino/mydb
http://myserver/tamino/mydb?_diagnose=ping

if not for the rest of the url, but at least for the databasename, make sure that you have it written in the right case (myDb != MYDB).

if all of this works, you can either load files with the interactive interface, or with a PHP application (or with a variety of other ways&means) - the results should be identical.

hope this helps for starters.

gruss,
