Setting up a connection to a database in Bitrix


The connection will not work with localhost. The host address must be taken from the data to connect to the database.

Database connection data in Bitrix are specified in the configuration file bitrix/php_interface/dbconn.php in lines:

$DBHost = "host";
$DBLogin = "login";
$DBPassword = "password";
$DBName = "base_data";

And also in the file bitrix/.settings.php in lines:

'host' => 'host',
'database' => 'base_data',
'login' => 'login',
'password' => 'password',

Changes can be made using filemanager or any FTPclient.
