Summary0008883: DB connection fails
DescriptionAfter a fresh installation, the installer reports all fine.
But when accessing the main screen, it fails:

Connect to database testlink on Host localhost fails
DBMS Error Message: 1045 - Access denied for user 'tluser'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Steps To Reproduce1- Do a fresh install (from testlink_1_9_20_fixed)
2- Run the installer
  - use a mysql DB
  - admin DB user: root (no password)
  - testlink DB user: tluser/yourpassword
3- Go to the testlink login page
Additional InformationI found the Testlink user is created without password. I can connect using the command line with this user without password.

I read the code of the function _mysql_make_user. In my configuration (ubuntu, mysql 5.7.29-0ubuntu0.16.04.1), the code "to guess if we are using MariaDB or MySQL" don't work: there no variables containing MariaDB or MySQL. So the user is created without any IDENTIFIED WITH clause.

The use of the structure if then else to append the identification data (line 527) may improve things.

On my config, both syntax work.
TagsNo tags attached.

There are lot of isssues created by the way the create user has been changed in MySQL
and other changes with MariaDB.

There is no simple way to identify in a exact way the DBMS between MySQL & MariaDB

Can you try with testlink_1_9_20_fixed?

I used testlink_1_9_20_fixed sources.

The syntax CREATE USER 'myuser' IDENTIFIED BY 'mypassword'; seems to be the more used. IMHO, put it as default should mitigate the issue.
