 Creating .configrc

The ddm.log shows the following:

 1. The SQL database server is not running.

 2. The username, password, hostname, or database name are not correct.

CAUSE:

Possible issue with the localhost configuration in the /etc/hosts file. 

 

RESOLUTION:

Check and verify the localhost is configured correctly in the /etc/hosts file. The following is a typical configuration for localhost in an /etc/hosts file on Linux:

::1         localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
