DigiKam and MYSQL (non-remote) DB access issue(s)--- remedy needed


Again - I updated to latest beta3 and for some time DK was working just fine, until it decided to put forward a note:


So yet again I cannot get into DK and my files/DB.

I uninstalled MAriaDB and installed it again.

But no luck.

Could someone walk me trough proper installation of MariaDB? Passwd? MySql.exe as a service? Port?
^ I usually install latest stable MariaDB and maybe how I install it differs a bit? Or did differ on few occasions…?

Also thinking of reinstalling DK…

Please help! :frowning:

edit: this is Windows installation… :slight_smile:
