I just ran the SS3 install and I'm getting an error saying 'I couldn't find a database server on 'localhost': Access denied for user '****_silverstripe'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'
I'm 100% certain the database exists and all the information is correct I've even made a new database still saying it couldn't find it.
Check you SS _config file. What does that say?
It should read something like this:
$databaseConfig = array(
"type" => 'MySQLDatabase',
"server" => 'localhost',
"username" => 'root',
"password" => 'yourpassword',
"database" => 'yourdb',
"path" => '',
If the info there is wrong, then change it to the correct variables.
