ive uploaded the files to a ftp server and tried to install but got the following failure:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in /data/home/m1204/rr-r/htdocs/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php on line 39

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /data/home/m1204/rr-r/htdocs/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php on line 40

Fatal error: DATABASE ERROR: Couldn't connect to MySQL database in /data/home/m1204/rr-r/htdocs/sapphire/core/model/Database.php on line 397

so can anyone help me with this?

Seems your database settings are wrong.

Check the path and credentials for the mysql database. Looks like you just uploaded your local-config (root with no password).

Try downloading the PHP based installer (silverstripe-v2.2.0.tar.gz) and upload it to the webserver (do not install on local machine first) and then it will ask you for your mysql settings.

You could probably change the mysite/_config.php to the correct setting too, but then you have to copy the database manually to your server too.
