ive uploaded the files to a ftp server and tried to install but got the following failure:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in /data/home/m1204/rr-r/htdocs/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php on line 39

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /data/home/m1204/rr-r/htdocs/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php on line 40

Fatal error: DATABASE ERROR: Couldn't connect to MySQL database in /data/home/m1204/rr-r/htdocs/sapphire/core/model/Database.php on line 397

Seems your database settings are wrong.

Check the path and credentials for the mysql database. Looks like you just uploaded your local-config (root with no password).

Try downloading the PHP based installer (silverstripe-v2.2.0.tar.gz) and upload it to the webserver (do not install on local machine first) and then it will ask you for your mysql settings.

You could probably change the mysite/_config.php to the correct setting too, but then you have to copy the database manually to your server too.
