After successfully installing a copy of the SilverStripe CMS on Localhost and playing about with it, I am trying to install a clean copy for the final site, again on Localhost. When running the installer as ROOT user (plus pswd), I am advised that everything 'appears to be OK'. However when I click 'install' I get the following two errors:
That username/password doesn't work: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES);
I can't create new databases and the database 'SS_mysite' doesn't exist (user 'root' doesn't have CREATE DATABASE permissions.)
Strangely enough, when I log in using system admin user and pswd, I only get the second message...
On a tight deadline and really want to get this running, so any advice is very much appreciated!!
