When installing EE - I get the dreaded database connection error. I've verified the DB works with the credentials by connecting locally in mysql with the same info. I've also utilized your dbtest.php and verified it works.
The problem appears to be EE isn't writing config.php and database.php. The files are zero byte after I hit install.
I've verified permissions and ownership on both files, as well as the other files as required by the installation script.
Is there potentially some php or apache config that is required to allow these files to be written? Please let me know. Thank you.
