mangos zero Unknown database?


Hi guys. I've been trying forever to get my server running from a VPS. I've set everything up, mysql runs fine and realmd runs fine. 


But now I've encountered an error when I try starting mangosd:

"Could not connect to MySQL database at Unknown database 'mangosd'

Can not connect to world database;3306;root;(mypassword);mangosd"

The "(mypassword)" part, obviously, is replaced with my actual password.


None of this makes sense, I can see my mangosd file right there along with my realmd file in my /mangos/bin/ directory. I've extracted all maps and data. Really frustrated right now, and hoping someone can give me some experienced input.

I had that exact issue. Turns out, I thought I had the correct password, but I did not. Used the correct one and realmd and zero/mangosd ran fine. Well after I troubleshot a unknown db error.

So I corrected that issue that you had. It was the mangosd.conf file that had the incorrect password for me. Did you get your issue resolved?

Also, connect to your database and do something like


to see what its looking for.
