Unable to install


I recently upgraded to MacOS Mojave and MAMP 5.1 and took advantage to make a clean install of CA from scratch (mysql, host, Providence 1.7.6) but I am unable load the installer or even a page. I am attaching the error message:

I have tried different mysql passwords and users, and checked the write permissions but I am unable to figure out where the error is.

Thank you,


  • One detail that I forgot, I am not using the localhost for the CA installation, but rather a custom host.

  • Have you tried creating a new MySQL user?

  • Fixed. I just reinstalled everything from scratch again and it worked. My guess is that the mysql databases were not updating to versión 5.7.23 Thanks
