Test Server Connection (phpList)

brandingDatabase Server not running?

Try this program, download the ZIP file, unpack the connect.php file to your desktop, upload to your phpList directory (the same directory on your server that shows admin, config and other directories and files. Now, open your .htaccess file in a TEXT editor (eg: Notepad) and add |connect.php to the end of the FilesMatch line, so it looks like this:

<FilesMatch "(index.php|dl.php|ut.php|lt.php|download.php|connector.php|connect.php)$">

Open your preferred Browser and enter your phpList installation URL going directly to the connect file: www phplist/connect.php

The result you are looking for is a list of the four values from your config file database settings, followed by Success!

If the database is at fault, it'll say Unable to Connect, in which case there probably is an error on the server or you have an error in your database settings, incorrect database name or password most likely.

This version works with both version 2 and version 3 of phpList.

REMOVE THE FILE AFTER USE for added security.
