php - Cake is NOT able to connect to the database. XAMPP


I'm developing on XAMPP 1.8.1 and running into issues with CakePHP not being able to connect to the database. I've looked around a bit, and others have suggested making sure pdo is enabled, and it is. I know my database settings are correct. I've checked and rechecked them, but I'm still getting:

Cake is NOT able to connect to the database.
Database connection "Mysql" is missing, or could not be created.

I've set up CakePHP multiple times before, even with XAMPP, and I've never run into this issue.

My database settings are as follows:

public $default = array(
    'datasource' => 'Database/MySQL',
    'persistent' => false,
    'host' => 'localhost',
    'login' => 'cakeuser',
    'password' => '*****',
    'database' => 'cake',
    'prefix' => '',
    //'encoding' => 'utf8',

Any suggestions?




Check the output of your phpinfo (). Is there a row titled PDO drivers? What does it say?
