• Server: Localhost via UNIX socket
• Server type: MySQL
• Server version: 5.5.35 - MySQL Community Server (GPL)
• Protocol version: 10

with the database name cl51-mahara
I've copied the installation files to my public_html folder and created a folder called maharadata outsite the rootfolder.
I then configured the config.php by adding the dbname,user,password and rootfolder as well as directory where it is at. My root folder is : public_html and I have Moodle running from this folder as well.  So I want to integrate Moodle and Mahara.
When I want to install Mahara I get this message:"Mahara requires permission to create database triggers, but is unable to do so. Please ensure that the trigger privilege has been granted to the appropriate user in your MySQL installation".

Hi Nolan,

Mahara requires certain tables in the database to have triggers/procedures added to them for Mahara to function correctly.

This normally means you need to grant all permissions to your database, eg:

GRANT ALL ON cl51-mahara.* TO dbuser@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'dbpass';

Where dbuser = the user you connect to mysql with and dbpass= the password you connect with.

If you are unable to grant all privileges to the database cl51-mahara you'll need to get a database user that can to run the grant privileges line, eg root.

Cheers

Robert
