Hi all, i'm trying now for days to get fork up and running locally in a subfolder. But it don't work. I know that fork is not created for subfolding, but i can't install it direct in my www_root cause i want to use more than one fork installation.

I have installed a fresh XAMPP for Windows (version 1.8.2-6), created a subfolder in htdocs for fork (fork.local), setting up my windows host file (127.0.0.1 fork.local) and the apache2 virtual host file. My routing works right (can access localhost and fork.local via browser).

After that i run the fork installer without a problem. I used the actual fork version (3.8.2). Fork created the needed tables in my database and there was no issue to install it.

But if i open "fork.local" in my browser, there is a "500 Internal Server Error". So i looked into the fork log and there i see this:

[2014-10-30 11:47:19] request.CRITICAL: Uncaught PHP Exception SpoonDatabaseException: "A database connection could not be established." at D:\Programme\XAMPP\htdocs\fork.local\vendor\spoon\library\spoon\database\database

Really, it sucks. My MySQL database is up and running, i can access it via phpmyadmin and MySQL Administrator without a problem. I have checked my database privileges and everything looks fine. I really don't know how to fix this issue.

I looked for hours to find a workaround for this but nothing helps me. Now i hope someone from the dev-team has a idea what i can do. Thanks alot.
