Installation errors

I am completely new to Akaunting. I just downloaded version 1.2.3 Stable and "installed" it on my Centos 7 instance on DigitalOcean. I am using Apache 2.4 & MariaDB.

When I try to access the site, I get 5 exception errors, of which 2 are PDOException, 1 is a QueryException & 2 ErrorException errors, with the following descriptions:

   SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user ''@'localhost' (using password: NO) (SQL: select * from `settings`) (View: /www/ak/resources/views/layouts/auth.blade.php)

   SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user ''@'localhost' (using password: NO) (SQL: select * from `settings`)

   SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user ''@'localhost' (using password: NO)

I have edited the .env and config/database.php to add the MariaDB user & password, but this has not solved the problem.

Can anyone help please?

Thank you.

But have you installed it first? you dont have to edit any file, it just installs.  if you just upload and edit conf files, the db wont have the tables created.  You might have to first install as in the instructions. 

The errors also shows ''@'localhost'... so no user is configured.

Sorry if dont understood you right :-/

Thank you for replying.

The documentation ( asks to "Open the link: http://your-domain/akaunting-directoryin your browser. It will start the installation wizard."

That's what I did. I opened the link in my browser, but it did NOT start the installation wizard.

Instead, I got the errors messages I mentioned in my initial post.

Any clue how to start the wizard?

A2Hosting auto-installed Akounting for me, but now going to the link is only giving me a blank page
