Can Someone Help Me Figure Out How to Get SilverStript going
Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\silverstripe\install.php on line 77
Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: A link to the server could not be established in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\silverstripe\install.php on line 77
And I did have An Error on the INstall.php ln 354 but I Mad ethe Function always Return true,
To fix the problem, just fill out the Database Details form with the right username and password.
The problem is that the mysql_get_server_info() function needs a valid connection to the database. If it can't find it, it attempts to create a connection with the default username and no password.
Hmmm I thought I had It says the database details are all good
On The SIlverStripe Installer:
MySQL server: localhost
MySQL username: root
MySQL database: nath
And From PHPmyadmin DB Nath
root localhost global ALL PRIVILEGES Yes
I Havn't got a password on the dB could that be the problem?
And Also this Line at the Bottom of the Screen.
mod_rewrite enabled You need mod_rewrite to run SilverStripe CMS.
What Does the OBDC stand for?
Ok Enabled mod_rewrite in Apcahe Conf file, and gave the Root user a password now it runs, and also extended the memory limit.
Good to hear you got it going :)
Its basically a "compatible" protocol to talk to databases, but you shouldn't need to use this with SilverStripe. You can, for example, use this to get PHP to talk to almost any database (e.g. Access), but in my experience its not something you can constitute as reliable.
I had this same exact problem.
First, how do you change the mod_rewrite in xampp?
Second, how do you extended the memory limit?
