Database configuration

The following configuration options are available under config/mysql.php:

MySQL connection

  • MySQL specific options must be defined during installation.


The hostname or IP address of the MySQL database server.

Usage: "hostname[[:port]]" or "IP[[:port]]"
Default value: "localhost"

If MySQL runs on “localhost” but on a different port, you should use “” instead.

For more information about the handling of “localhost” in php-mysql, see the PHP manual

Whenever you specify “localhost” or “localhost:port” as server, the MySQL client library will override this and try to connect to a local socket (named pipe on Windows). If you want to use TCP/IP, use “” instead of “localhost”. If the MySQL client library tries to connect to the wrong local socket, you should set the correct path as runtime Configuration in your PHP configuration and leave the server field blank.


The name of the MySQL database for NConf.

Default value: "NConf"


The name of the database user. The user must have “SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, ALTER, DROP” privileges on DBNAME.*

Default value: "nconf"


The password for DBUSER.
