|Target Version||2.2.1||Fixed in Version||2.2.1|
|Summary||0022510: Attempting to connect to database as admin BAD despite valid userid and password|
I am trying to install an unaltered copy of 2.2.0 so I can have a look at it before doing an upgrade from my current Mantis installation.
OS: Win 10 Pro 32 bit, version 1607.
I unzipped the distribution to a directory in htdocs, then opened the admin/install.php page.
For simplicity, I used the MySQL root userid/password as the Username (for Database) and Password (for Database). I specified the same values in the Admin Username and Admin Password fields.
I clicked Install/Upgrade Database, and all results under Checking Database were good, except:
After clicking Install/Upgrade Database, the page shows 8 dots for the Password (for Database) field but only 6 dots for Admin Password.
I verified that I could use the same admin userid/password to create a database using either mysqladmin or phpMyAdmin.
I tried the same test as above with 2.1.0, and the install completed without problem.
I've attached a copy of the install page after clicking Install/Upgrade Database.
I don't know whether this might be what the reporter of 0022481 was encountering.

This problem report /may/ be invalid. I just checked the 2.0 Admin Guide, contained in the download package, and I see that my software levels are below the minimum. The Admin Guide available from http://www.mantisbt.org/documentation.php is still the 1.3 version.
I'll upgrade XAMPP and retry, then update here whether it resolved the problem.
For the record, I just fixed that a few minutes ago (see #22511) as another user pointed me to this discrepancy.
Upgraded XAMPP to 5.6.30, which contains:
Repeated the same installation test and got the same results:
Repeated the same installation test with 2.1.0, and install was successful.
I can reproduce the problem on my Dev box.
@vboctor, considering the criticality of this issue (which basically blocking new installs), I would appreciate if you could review & test the code for inclusion in the 2.2.1 release.

|Install: fix db connection as admin check (#1049)
Commit 42718557933d1e58fc134ef3bea7db97aeb00c65 (issue 0022400)
introduced a regression in the installer, causing the 'Attempting to
connect to database as admin' check to fail for new installations, even
though the Admin user ID and password are correct.
