Installation troubles

I'm having difficulties getting SS loaded onto a testing site.

I have downloaded and setup my site on a local machine but now I've come to load onto the web im having problems can someone help please.

When I goto install.php I fill in the relevant details and the database info but it always says can't access mysql db after clicking recheck.

I have manually tried a php script which connects to the db and prints the contents but for some reason the SS installation routine doesn't like it.

I really need to solve this as I have shown the system to a client and they really liked it plus I can enhance the system to meet some specific requirements but if I can't show this working on the web I won't get the business.

Many Thanks for a great product, I've been searching for a cms and instantly got SS and like its extensibility.

Regards

What is the error relating to the database - does it say it cannot reach it at all? Also, which version of PHP and MySQL are you using?

Hi,

PHP version 5.2.1
MySql 5.0.27-standard

The message shown is that the access is denied. I have noticed that the user info I enter; because its different than the standard root; is not shown in the box next to the message Are the access credentials correct.

This is why I manually checked acccess with a simple script.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

how to overcome this

Is the .htaccess file writeable?   Unable to detect whether I can write to files. Please ensure C:/wamp/www/2/.htaccess is writable.
Is the mysite/ folder writeable?   Unable to detect whether I can write to files. Please ensure C:/wamp/www/2/mysite is writable.
Is the tutorial/ folder writeable?   Unable to detect whether I can write to files. Please ensure C:/wamp/www/2/tutorial is writable.
Is the assets/ folder writeable?   Unable to detect whether I can write to files. Please ensure C:/wamp/www/2/assets is writable.

i made all files and folders needed writeable

so...?

Hi,

Does the .htaccess file actually exist, you sometimes get this its not there. If so create a blank file and try again.
