I'm trying out October on a WebFactional subdomain,, which is being served from the directory /home/aalaap/webapps/aalaap.

I wget'd the from GitHub and extracted it. I ran the installer. I picked SQLite, but the default path suggestion of ../database/production.sqlite didn't work, probably because the script couldn't access a folder below it's domain home directory. So, I just removed the path and kept just production.sqlite, which was created in the domain root (i.e. /home/aalaap/webapps/aalaap/production.sqlite). I was able to proceed, but it halts at the point where it tries to create the admin user, throwing up this:

SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

I've given full write permissions to that /aalaap folder, it's contents as well as the production.sqlite database file, but the error persists. How do I fix this?

PHP 5.4 on Apache, if that's important. Also, on the first page of the installer, all listed items are green, which means everything checks out, including write access to the folder.

I ended up giving October root-acces on MySQL. I couldnt get the created account to work. From you log it seems its not using password to connect to the DB?
