Install tool not working when NOT using namebased hosting

When I try to install typo3 8.1 on the default ip based site (Debian nginx, but this applies to other systems too I am sure).
I am always getting:

@Trusted hosts pattern mismatch

The trusted hosts pattern will be configured to allow all header values. This is because your $SERVER_NAME is "_" while your HTTP_HOST is "". Check the pattern defined in Install Tool -> All configuration -> System -> trustedHostsPattern and adapt it to expected host value(s).

I think this should only be displayed when there is already a finished install because I cannot comply with this suggestion.

If I click "Continue anyway, I know what I am doing" all further steps of the wizard are skipped and at least the DB configuration is empty. Front- and backend fail inevitably.

If I use namebased hosting the install tool does not give the above warning but when I click "System looks good. Continue." it give the same issue with the not configured DB connection and the rest of the wizard skipped.

Manually adding the db configuration in typo3conf/LocalConfiguration.php is a workaround:

'DB' => [
'Connections' => [
'Default' => [
'charset' => 'utf-8',
'dbname' => 'typo3',
'driver' => 'mysqli',
'host' => 'localhost',
'password' => 'XXXXXXXXXX',
'port' => 3306,
'unix_socket' => '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock',
'user' => 'typo3',

Seems to be the same problem?

Actions #4

Indeed. The correct title for the bugreport should be "DB connection not configured by install tool in typo3 8.1"

Actions #5

I am not getting any message about an old Mysql version. The wizard just ends after the first page with typo3 trying to connect with an empty connection.

  • Status changed from New to Closed

That should be already fixed; see #76163, so I am closing it for now.

If you think that this is the wrong decision or experience the issue again then please reopen it or open a new issue with a reference to this one.

Thank you
