      Description

      Installer is not able to connect to the SQL server, I have tried both secure WIN and SQL login. mysql_connect works fine on same server from a PHP script.

      I suspect the problem is the handeling of several SQL instances on one server, my hostname is like 'SERVERNAME\instancename'. When I recieve the error that Moodle cannot connect to the server, an extra slash has been added so the host is now 'SERVERNAME\instancename'.
