My first time using SilverStripe and I have hit a stumbling block on the installation. I have spent several hours trying to sort the problem but just cannot seem to.
I have installed plenty of Wordpress/Zen Cart/etc sites and the setup procedure is very similar.
Every time I try and enter the database details on the install.php page I get the following;
"Database access credentials correct"
"That username/password doesn't work:"
This may sound silly but do I need to enter the details below to the _config file manually prior to installation or should the install do it manually.
"type" => "MySQLDatabase",
"server" => "localhost",
"username" => "",
"password" => "",
"database" => "",
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just an update.
I managed to get it working by doing the following;
Password: left it blank
Database Name: "mydatabase"
Not sure if this is safe or not but Silverstripe installed.

No database password is generally fine in a development environment, but not in production.
127.0.0.1 and localhost are the same, so no problem there.
