When attempting to run wp-admin/install.php I get a blank screen.
I added some echo statements around the following:
$wpdb = new wpdb( DB_USER,DB_PASSWORD,DB_NAME,DB_HOST);
This call is on line 265 of file wp-includes/wp-db.php
I can echo something prior to that call, but I see nothing echo'ed after that call.
I've checked and triple checked my db setting and I can run mysql using the user that I configured in wp-config.php.
I'm using red hat 8.0, I've added the 8.0.5 rpm that adds mysql.so so I think I should be good to know.
Clearly it is a problem with php interfacing with mysql, but I am stumped...
