 Hi Gezahegn,
thank you for your comment.
i  installed the mysql again then tried to start the installation with a non-password again. regrecttably it didn't work.
i checked the database and found the installation did create the opencms database in my mysql. i wander the reason why the OpenCms couldn't find the database it just create for me and still came out with the same error:
javax.servlet.ServletException: OpenCms initialization error!
Could not connect to the database. Is the database up and running?

i'm really confused. could you consider other possible mistake i could have made?

thank you very much.



 message from  "Gebreselassie, Gezahegn" <gebreselassie at> Hi fangzhu, it seems to be an authentification problem to connect to mysql database. During Installation of OpenCms, you gave perhaps like this:username: rootpassword:(blank - no password)If you did like this, you have also to do the same for mysql-database. Otherwise OpenCms can not connect to the database.I hope, it may help you.With regards Gezahegn Gebreselassie
