When upgrading from 2.12 to 2.14, I ran checksetup.pl. The first time, I got a message about the create_htaccess variable in localconfig. I changed this value from 1 to 0 and re-ran checksetup.pl. At this point I get the error: --- Checking user setup ... DBI->connect(;ottawa;3306) failed: No Database Selected at ./checksetup.pl line 736 Uncaught exception from user code: Can't connect to the mysql database. Is the database installed and up and running? Do you have the correct username and password selected in localconfig? --- The bugzilla database exists on ottawa. There is a comment in the code about the original dsn: # original DSN line was: # my $dsn = "DBI:$db_base:$my_db_name;$my_db_host;$my_db_port"; # removed the $db_name because we don't know it exists yet, and this will fail # if we request it here and it doesn't. - firstname.lastname@example.org 2000/09/16 I added $my_db_name in front of $my_db_host and the problem went away. I shouldn't have to edit this file.
what version of DBI do you have? This sounds like you have an old version of DBI, though checksetup.pl should be checking for that as well. If you notice the date on that comment, that code has been there since before 2.12, so you should have had this same problem upgrading to 2.12 if it were Bugzilla's fault.

Checking for DBI (v1.13) ok: found v1.14 I believe that I did have this problem upgrading to 2.12 as well. I just didn't report a bug at that time.
how about DBD::mysql? Maybe we're requiring too early a version of that...
Checking for DBD::mysql (v1.2209) ok: found v2.0415
This machine works: (PPC G3, Darwin 1.3.7 / Mac OS X 10.0.4) Checking for DBI (v1.13) ok: found v1.16 Checking for DBD::mysql (v1.2209) ok: found v2.0901 This one works: (i386, RedHat 7.1) Checking for DBI (v1.13) ok: found v1.15 Checking for DBD::mysql (v1.2209) ok: found v2.0415 OK, that rules out DBD::mysql, since you have the same version I do. This one works: (i386, RedHat 6.2) Checking for DBI (v1.13) ok: found v1.14 Checking for DBD::mysql (v1.2209) ok: found v2.0415 OK, that one is the same version on both counts. Something is screwy somewhere with your install I think...
If you don't specify the database name, what is the expected behaviour? What is it supposed to connect to?
The expected behavior is that you connect to the database server without connecting to a specific database. This is necessary on the first run on checksetup.pl because it has no clue whether the bugs database exists yet or not, and if we try to connect to it and it doesn't, it bombs horribly (which was the behavior in 2.10). So you connect without specifying a database, then ask it what databases you have access to. If the one in $db_name isn't in the list, then we create it.
Stephen, any progress with this? I haven't seen any error reports from anyone else, and I can verify it works as expected everyplace I have access to. I'm tempted to mark WORKSFORME, but I want to make sure you haven't made any interesting discoveries first.
No, I haven't had time to look at this. You can mark it WFM if you want and if I get around to it before 2.16 is released I will re-open it.
ok, done. If you run into it again or find any clues, reopen.

I also am encountering this problem, here is the output from checksetup.pl : Checking perl modules ...

We should probably use the DBI routines to get name sof databases. Don't know if mysql's dbd stuff support that, although I think it does.
Priority: -- → P2
Target Milestone: --- → Bugzilla 2.18
Unloved bugs targetted for 2.18 but untouched since 9-15-2003 are being retargeted to 2.20 If you plan to act on one immediately, go ahead and pull it back to 2.18.
Target Milestone: Bugzilla 2.18 → Bugzilla 2.20
has anyone seen this happen on a current Bugzilla version? It's been a long time since 2.14...
Summary: Upgrade from 2.12 to 2.14 fails → checksetup.pl fails to connect when checking to see if database exists
Expecting that this has been FIXED in the meantime, optimistically marking RESOLVED. Please reopen if I'm wrong.
