WAMP database access

I'm trying out Xcloner locally in WAMP before I use it live, but I can't get it to access the files I want to back up.

I have it installed alongside a Drupal site & the Xcloner management is working fine. The folder structure looks like this:


– www

– Drupal

– Xcloner

Xcloner has the right SQL logon credentials. In the config file I had to change the initial backup path as it was set as the Xcloner folder so it now points to Drupal.  However that gives an 'unable to select database' error, which is pretty self explanatory but I can't see what to change.

The Win 7 file permissions for the Drupal folder look OK – accessible to users and authenticated users.

Apologies if I'm missing something obvious. Would appreciate any advice.

Usually the unable to select database error is related to the mysql settings, so please go to your XCloner Config -> Mysql details tab, and check that there is a mysql database setup by default and that the mysql user you have there is allowed to access it


Hope it helps, Ovidiu

Hey thanks for the quick response Ovidiu,

That's fixed it. There was a login but no name for the database!

Like I said, I knew it was something obvious 🙂

Many thanks
