Re: Cannot connect to database. Unknown MySQL server host [SOLVED]

Got it working! I had skipped installing MySQL on the server as I didn't intend using it so I installed it. I also changed the server name to the IP address and now it's working. Not sure if it was necessary to install the database server but hey, it's working now.

Re: Bad Server Information when trying to add a new candidat

Hi Russ,

I've set up a new server running PHP 7.2.1 and am getting the following error message:
CATS Error: All required PHP extensions are not loaded.

Does OpenCATS run on PHP 7.2.1 and if so, what are the required extensions?

Cheers,

Rob
