Installing Docker-Simple - DB Access Denied

Description of the Issue
After Following the Documentation “Installing Linkace with Docker - Simple”, the Web-Setup can’t finish because of Access Denied Error
Steps to reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Download * docker-compose.production-simple.yml and .env.docker.production
  2. Rename .env.docker.production to .env and docker-compose.production-simple.yml to docker-compose.yml
  3. Changed the unsecure DB and Redis Password with Something like that “FmhTTRY8JVPgZZ” in the File .env
  4. Changed the Port of Linkace, because “80” was allready used:
      - "
  1. run docker-compose up -d
  2. run docker exec linkace_app_1 php artisan key:generate
  3. Go to the Website http://docker-host:8073
  4. Click through the Web-Setup Until DB Configuration comes
  5. An Error shows, that there is no Access to the Database.
Database could not be configured. Please check your connection details. Details: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'linkace'@'' (using password: YES) (SQL: SHOW FULL TABLES WHERE table_type = 'BASE TABLE')

After that, i manually filled the Password, but it does not work either.

Not sure what the issue might be. You could send me the .env details via private message, maybe there’s an issue with the password format.

Hi Kovah, thanks for the Reply. This Community Board says “Message them by selecting their avatar and using the message button.” But there is no icon or link for private message. Maybe I’m not trustful enough? :wink:
However, I did a complete new installation and typed in an unsecured Passwort. Without any effort.
I am not able to send you a direct message or upload my .env file to this thread. Maybe you can send me an PM and I can answer?

Ok, I read 30 Posts and now I can write PMs, what I did.

Thank you
