i'm attempting to setup anahita on my local machine for dev testing. i've got to the site:init step and it asks for basic MySQL info which i provide. however no matter what i try i get the sql connection error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL.
i can connect manually with mysql command line using the provided data. the database exists and everything is absolutely correct. i cannot figure out why this is happening. is it trying to use mysqli instead of mysql? my dev machine satisfies all the requirements. i am using a MAMP setup.
