I have installed zikula but its not working

Congratulations, the software was installed successfully

Zikula has been successfully installed at :
Administrative URL :

We hope the installation process was easy.


  • What's the problem?

  • So when i open the site
    it shows

    This page isn’t working is currently unable to handle this request.

    but it seems that the doctrine driver inside of zikula has problems

  • you will probably get something like this as a result of PHP error reporting

    Fatal error: Uncaught PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045]
    Access denied for user 'XXXXXXX'@'' (using password: YES)

    in /home/vol9_7/

    Stack trace: #0 /home/vol9_7/

    PDO->__construct('mysql:host=sql1...', 'XXXXXX', 'XXXXX, Array) #1 /home/vol9_7/

    Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOConnection->__construct('mysql:host=sql1...', XXXXX, 'XXXXX', Array) #2 /home/vol9_7/

    Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOMySql\Driver->connect(Array, XXXXX, 'XXXX', Array) #3

    /home/vol9_7/ Doctrine\DBAL\Connection->connect()

    in /home/vol9_7/ on line 103

  • What should i do?

    depends on your knowledge :neutral:
    you need to examine the code and see/trace what is wrong in communication with the database

    it does not have to be that problem at all, but that is the first thing/module that has returned some errror (the problem can be on an completely different side)

    read and review all the bugs on the developer site

    contact developers etc.

    and if the admin has some idea he will tell you

  • i tried to install other apps and there was no problem
    Why is it happening with zikula?

  • you should definitely try the link from my first post (about error 500)
    and see if you get the same problem as I wrote

    applications is not the same
    differences in code, differences in approach, difference in what it does, differences in what it requires, how old it's, regularly updated or not, tested well or not, etc.

    Try to understand that I have no time to debugging the zikula

    several times I spent a couple of hours trying to help people when thay write something like:

    "please help !!! heeeelp !! My page does not do this and that, my theme does not work"

    and then I tell them all problems in code... do this and that, change it there and there, here put xyxyyxy, blah, blah...

    and after two days they completely changed website/plugins and did not use anything they asked for (topic and problems)

    what do you think how do I feel after that?

    as an idiot who has lost a few hours of my life for someone who even does not know what he wants and actually just experimenting...

    but everything seemed like he could not live without it :neutral:

    so please try to understand why I do not go into deep analysis
