Another NextCloud One Click Error

My newest issue.

Error while trying to create admin user: Failed to connect to the database: An exception occurred in driver: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known.

Not sure where this came from but it would seem i screwed this up aswell.

Thank you to anyone who helps.

Something about the database parameters is wrong in your NextCloud configuration. Perhaps you don't have the following entries in /etc/services:

mysql           3306/udp    # MySQL
mysql           3306/tcp    # MySQL

Perhaps you used an IP address when localhost was the required answer. Perhaps you left an IP address blank that you were supposed to fill in.

P.S. No need to open a new thread for each error you find. Just keep using one of the two you've already created. When you add a new post, the thread filters to the top of the list. That's how we all know there's something new added.
