    SilverStripe install on Mac 10.5.7 won't complete Link to this post

    Hi gang

    really in need of some help as i've spent a bit of time on this. Followed the install instructions however i get this error on the install page and can't work out what to put in there:

    Under MySQL Database I get a message saying:
    These database details don't appear to be correct. Please enter the correct details before installing.

    These are the default details (not sure what to change them to or how to change them):

    MySQL server: localhost
    MySQL username: root
    MySQL password:
    MySQL database: ss_mysite

    There is no probs with the .htaccess file as that exists. I am running MAMP 1.7.2. saving to the htdocs file although ultimately i have another directory on my server where i want this to go but let's get it working here first.

    i saw another post with the same issue however there were no replies.

    let me know if you need any more info

    regards
    unicorn7

    If anyone could help get me past this hiccup I'd be very grateful!

    My default password with mamp was root.

    baba papa...you're a legend

    such a simple thing. i entered the word root in password then clicked the retry and it completed the loading. thanks for advising me of that. i might tell the development team to code that one in.

    best regards
