Hi everyone,

i been unable to install SS since version 3.2 and the PDO connection implementation.

I tested the PDO connection by adding a php script straight on the server and it shows that i CAN connect via PDO.
However, when i install SS 3.2 with a fresh install i always have that error

Access denied; you need (at least one of) the SHOW DATABASES privilege(s) for this operation

If anyone may help, i tried everything, check everywhere, doesn't make sense to me

On you can remove all of the code except for the last line, and you should be able to connect again.
