I have tried to install Silverstripe but get lost as I get two errors when trying to install it via Microsoft Web Platform (I have Windows 7)
This is what I have done so far:
- Downloaded Silverstripe
- Downloaded Microsoft Web Platform
But it tells be by the end of the installation proces that
The database 'silverstripe' could not be created.
What does this mean? I am totally blank when it comes to database so I am a beginner here. Do I need to set up some kind of database before installating Silverstripe or is it a lot more straightforward? I have in the installation proces created a new website and a new database. Is this correct?
I hope some one can help me with this simple and yet confusing steps of the installing proces
Thank you very much

Which database type did you choose during installation? MySQL or SQL Server?
EDIT I don't believe I was given a choice of database during install, which is interesting. It tries to install MySQL and SQL Server Express at the same time.
I've just setup a Windows 7 Ultimate VM for testing, will see how my WebPI installation goes.

I've run through the install and got the same error on Windows 7. "Database 'silverstripe' could not be created".
A critical ticket has been filed in our bug tracker, looks like a problem with the Web PI portion of the install, as installing SilverStripe manually works fine. http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/5691
This would involve downloading XAMPP or WampServer and installing it to get a basic web server running, then downloading SilverStripe and copying it into the XAMPP htdocs directory (C:\xampp\htdocs for XAMPP, C:\wamp\www for WampServer).
Finally, browse to http://localhost/<directory name of silverstripe> to start the install process.
More details here: http://doc.silverstripe.org/installation-on-windows-wamp
You might need to uninstall the programs that WebPI installed when it failed. I don't think it cleans those up automatically.
If you have problems, let me know.

Thanks for your time. I am slowly starting to get an idea how all this are related to each other. However, after carefully followed your advice and the usefull guideline you provided I still seem to have a problem. This time with the Wampserver, as it will not go on-line nor either start up. I do not know whether these two things are connected. When I try to 'rewrite module' or put it on line it gives me this error:
Could not execute menuitem (internal error) [exception] could not perform service action. The service has not been started.
I do not understand why as there should be no web service running (Like Skype and Google talk, make sure to de select the port)
I have also deleted what I installed the first time when it gave me an error.
Hope it makes sense
Thank you once again

Over the weekend I have been hanging out in the WampServer forum. It turns out that it is not easy nor simple to install the Wampserver on Windows 7 either. What do you suggest me to do? Is it me who is totally ignorant or should I simply not use Windows 7 at all if that is what causes the problems?
