  • Installation step 4

    Everyting works fine up until step 4 when i get this error:

    [QUOTE]Setting up tables...

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the database. Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

    An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

    We apologise for any inconvenience.[/QUOTE]

    I am running version 1.1.2, on windows 98, with php 4 and mysql 3.21.29. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    try again, view source on the error screen and post what the SQL Error says.

    Step 4 sets up the tables, so I'm willing to bet that it's either a permissions error of some sort or that 3.21 is too ancient a version of mySQL.

      Does this mean i need a newer version of mysql, or is it a problem with something else?

        I would definitely upgrade mySQL.

        when you try to reinstall, are you telling it reset the database?
