I run 2.10 and I am lucky to have this program. But now I would like to update it (to 2.12c) and I would like to change the place of the data bank. So I tried a new installation (and transfer the data afterwards). But there are questions and a big problem:

1. Question
install.php shows message in the second screen:
MAC:
Warning: system,passthru,shell_exec,popen,escapeshellcmd,proc_open,proc_nice() has been disabled for security reasons in /www/htdocs/databasename/go/install/test.inc on line 104

What does it mean?

2. next the setup has to be filled in
Host: localhost
Administrator username: databank admin
Administrator password: databank password

Database: databank name
Allow connections from host ('%' for any host): %
Username: new user name
Password: new user password
Confirm password: new user password

But I get the message:
Failed to connect to database as administrator.
MySQL Error: 1044 Access denied for user: 'goprex@localhost' to database 'mysql'

(I have installed the sql-tables before)

Who can help?

To create databases you need a MySQL user with these privileges. The user you used doesn't have those permissions. Why do you want to move the database?

I think you should just choose 'Use existing database' and fill in the details.
