Forma needs PHP < 7.1, better if < 7.0.11

You could try to bypass the control (can't say how many things in Forma will stop working, as my versions are deeply changed and now compatibles with 7.3).
To do this, find the following in /install/controllers/Step2Controller.php:

$res['php']=((version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '5.2.0', '>=') && version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '7.0.11', '<')) ? 'ok' :
((version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '7.0.11', '>=') && version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '7.1.0', '<')) ? 'warn' : 'err' ));

and change it to:

$res['php']='ok';

We managed this by adding the following line into the .htaccess file:

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php56 .php

I do not know if it will work under all PHP installations.

By the way, once FormaLMS is installed, switching back to PHP 7+ is possible.

It can be a PHP setting or mySQL. You need to debug

I tried to install in my local system but failed at step 2 with error Error: Could not connect to the database! Please, make sure the details are correct.

What should be done to overcome this error? or rather what are the procedures for setting up this software on local server?
