:( hi Guys,
I'm trying to install SuiteCrm for the first time, at the last step of installation there is an error as below:
"The provided database host, username, and/or password is invalid, and a connection to the database could not be established. Please enter a valid host, username and password"
my OS is Win 7 and I'm using a local web server (XAMPP), my information to work with web server is not enough actually this the first time that I use web server! please kindly let me know how to solve this problem.
Thank you very much

Which version of SuiteCRM is this?

What are you using as a "host" value? It should probably be "localhost"

The SuiteCRM installer works best if you don't create a database first. So you just install MySQL and create root credentials.

Then you give those credentials to SuiteCRM installer, it creates the SuiteCRM DB for you.

If you have problems, look for help on Google, specific to your XAMPP install. You might need to add DB modules to your php.ini, for example, so that PHP can connect.
