Ingress DB Installer is the Ingress connector tool that we use to establish the connection between Ingress program and MySQL server 5.5 database program. Sometimes, users may face problems loading the Ingress software. For example, the Ingress server is not updated to the latest, you can try to run the Ingress DB Installer and complete all the steps required to fix this problem.

However, there are certain issues that may disrupt you from successfully running all the steps in the Ingress DB Installer. This article will be discussing the problem that may happen on the Ingress DB Installer and troubleshooting these issues.

Issue and Problem Verification 

1. The Ingress DB Installer is showing an error message stating ‘Not Connected to Server’ when you run the installation at the first step (Test Connection).

This error appears because you have keyed in the wrong MySQL password. Make sure the MySQL password is the one you created when you first install the MySQL server 5.5 in your PC.
However, if you have forgotten the password, you may refer to the solution from the MySQL vendor website on how to reset the MySQL password. You can also ask your programmer or the IT personnel to configure the steps for you, as you might need help from the IT expertise in regards to this configuration.

Another option to reset this password is by uninstalling the MySQL server and reinstall it with a new one. However, this option will corrupt the existing database after you decide to reinstall the MySQL. Unless you have a backup database file where you can restore the existing file after reinstalling the program.
