Hi got past the username etc screen for install but stuck on the 'oops' screen? I've tried again and again but same deal, checked db settings just not getting past this, assuming the oops means it can't connect to the db but if the details are correct (I have a pw with its own un and pw with privs for that) and tested with root root, any ideas – seems most people are having no probs with this, then tried logging in and ok, why would it hang do you think on oops when seems to have installed?
If Craft can't connect to the database, it will let you know. Some other error is occurring. Check your
craft/storage/runtime/logs files for an
[error] entry, and that will have the error message that is occurring.
Also, in between installation attempts, be sure to delete any tables that were created in the database from a previous install attempt.
