I have installed OrangeHRM 4.3.5 on my Debian Buster server with PHP7 and MariaDB. I was able to complete the installation steps, but when it redirected me to the login page, I'm receiving the error Internal Error Occurred.
I've checked the logs at /symfony/log/orangehrm.log and I'm consistently receiving the following message:
I have confirmed that the correct password for my ORANGEHRM user is in single quotes in the /lib/confs/Conf.php file. However, it's almost as though OrangeHRM is not passing that password over to MariaDB. When I manually try to log in to MariaDB, it works with the password. If I don't use the -p command, then I receive the same error I'm seeing in the logs.PDO Connection Error: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Access denied for user 'ORANGEHRM'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Any ideas? I've been going from one file to another and I can't find any leads.
