Troubleshoot problem about linking into Database under Unix server (Hosting)...


I have bought domain and web hosting plan (Unix-based web hosting). Then installed "yourls" ([url removed, login to view]) link shortener into my server.

Before I start to install "yourls", I could see in my host (server) only two folders: one called "cgi-bin" and the other called "htdocs". Those 2 folders are not mentioned in the installation instructions of "yourls" website. It might be the instructions to install "yourls" are given for windows-based hosting and not unix-based hosting.

Now I managed to install "yourls" link shortner, but i got one error say: "Fatal error, Incorrect DB config, or could not connect to DB ". So, I NEED HELP TO SOLVE THIS ERROR AND MAKE "YOURLS" WORK.

I will give you access by TEAMVIEWER SOFTWARE into my PC and you are requested to troubleshoot it. I will be with you on chat here in [url removed, login to view] for any info or question you may need.

You may check the given website above for instructions and information on this tool:

It sounds like you need to setup a database on your server first. The script needs to store the original & shortened URLs so it knows where to send anyone that clicks on the shortened URL.
