Installed fresh-this-week ubuntu 20.04,apache,phpadmin,mysql and the current 5.3(?) stable release Lucee. I put a simple , test page on my web site, and Lucee processes it properly (i.e., the cf tags behave like CF).
I successfully imported my database into MySQL with PHPMyAdmin, but a .cfm database query sez;
Lucee 18.104.22.168 Error (database)
Message datasource [cballen_woodstocktables] doesn’t exist
Detail available datasource names are
I was able to log into the Lucee panel via the internet at (mydomain.com/lucee/admin/server.cfm) by entering my Lucee admin PW. When I try to create a datasource in nthe Lucee Server panel - to match my .cfm pages and imported MySQL database, I get this error:
Services - Datasource
Access denied for user ‘’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO)
lucee.runtime.exp.NativeException: Access denied for user ‘’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO) at com.mysql.cj.jdbc.exceptions.SQLError.createSQLException(SQLError.java:129) at, etc…
Can I get to Lucee admin thru my secure SSH terminal login (as root or sudo user) - or how do I run the Lucee server admin with the proper credentials? I’m a newbie on many dimensions here, but I’m most of the way there! Any suggestions? Thanks.
