MySQL Root Problem
"You will only need this if the database and/or user account above don't
already exist."

On the config page for web install it says that MySQL root access is not
neccessary if the account given checks fine, however the script stops
and begins backtracing just after letting me know that the root password
(I didn't give one) is denied. What confuses me is that the script sets
up the database just fine, yet doesn't spit out LocalSettings.

Could someone please assist me? I've written so many entries, and I'm
dying to make them accessible.

Below is the readout, thanks,


* PHP 4.3.6 ok
* PHP server API is cgi; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title)
