Hi everybody ::- D. My first post here. An unfortunate one, unfortunately ::- D.
I am trying to install SilverStripe on a Windows machine, with MySQL 5. And this is the error I get at install NO MATTER WHAT I DO.
That username/password doesn't work: Access denied for user 'SYSTEM'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
I DO NOT tell it "System". I use the root username with THE CORRECT password. I also tried OTHER usernames, same error. It keeps complaining about SYSTEM, SYSTEM, SYSTEM, arghhhhhhhh, it's driving me CRAZY!!!!!!!
Again, I repeat, I give it the correct password and everything. I also tried setting MySQL to accept 4.0 compatible security, NOTHING.
Some messages end with "please help, I'm desperate".
I will end with PLEASE HELP OR I'LL KILL MYSELF. Ok, I'm joking ::- ). But really, I'm at the limit of my imagination in solving this issue ::- (.

Are you running on WAMP?
I have installed SilverStripe on wamp with out any problem at all, sometime it might be a problem with the mysql host address.

Does the server exist -----> OK (localhost)
I used it with standard mysql.
Then I dumped that, and switched to XAMPP.
Same problem. It's a problem SilverStripe has with MySQL. I don't see why I MUST use WAMP. It's just a program pack, it should work with my configuration too. By the way, I installed SilverStripe today on a Linux server, I provided the correct credentials and same problem.
Damn ::- ( ... this isn't a SilverStripe problem so I apologize. But maybe somebody can still help. I run a PHP website on that machine AND IT WORKS, but for other SQL connections it does not work and I do not understand why. I get the same SYSTEM@ error even for this simple PHP code:
$dbConn = mysql_connect('localhost', 'ffoll', 'testt');
$active = mysql_select_db('funfoll', $dbConn);
$database = 'funfoll';
die("Couldn't connect to MySQL database");

Might be your MySQL setup - do you know how to read the my.conf file? Post it here if you can.

Also check whether the localhost is open for that user.
