    username/password eror during installation Link to this post

    Hello all,

    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;

    Server: 127.0.0.1
    Username: root
    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.

    Cheers,
    Sean
