"Test connection" button for installer

Post by samwisesk8r » Sun May 28, 2017 9:10 pm

I think it would be useful to have a "test connection" button at the database settings page during the installation.

PrestaShop (not a forum software I know) has such a button and it feels good to know that you can safely proceed to the next step.

The installer already does this automatically before going to the next step.
