Question: I am some issues installing MLM on my server. Can you answer my questions?
First question: the first two fields are username and password. Which username and password? The AD user who has permissions on the server, or the username I filled out on the first screen of the MLM installation, or the username of the local administrator on the webserver?
Second question: Which database user are you looking for, the one who has local permissions to create databases and tables, or the one who has remote access to create databases and tables. I tried both, but I think I will use the local database admin user credentials because the scripts are running locally.
Finally, on my web browser (not the web browser on the local server), I entered https://
/lm/lm.php?cmd=init&pwd=password. This returned no information and did nothing.
Third question: is password in the URL supposed to be replaced with a real password? If so, which one, and why was it not surrounded by < >?
Answer: The installation of MLM is fully explained here. We even shot a video that covers the full installation and an opening and click-through test. You can watch it below:
The username and password you are referring to are the MLM username and password. For accessing MLM both from the web and MaxBulk Mailer. It is explained both in the MLM manual and in the video.
For database access, you need the R/W one. To create tables and modify them.
In /lm/lm.php?cmd=init&pwd=password you have to use MLM password you choose previously.
If the URL does nothing you should look at the server error log to see the reason.
