  • vB5 database installation error

    Hi there.

    vBulletin 5 installation fails on my server with following error:
    Specified key was too long; max key length is 767 bytes

    Server with default distribution packages:
    Ubuntu 16.04 x64
    NGINX 1.10.0 using https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/preparefiles_nginx
    PHP 7.0.4-7
    MariaDB 10.0.24 with mysqli

    I think it's due to MariaDB 10. It would be nice if you support MariaDB 10 in the next release
    because it is the default MariaDB version on Ubuntu 16 and other people are probably going to get
    the same error.

    We support MariaDB now. The error is caused by a limitation in the configuration of the server. This issue is fixed in 5.2.3. In the meantime replace /core/install/mysql-schema.php with the attached file.

    See Post #4.

      First error is fixed, now it's complaining about another table. Please fix them all in 5.2.3 .

        The mysql-schema.php is from a 5.2.3 nightly build. It should have all the required changes.
