Question I have... How to make the pagebuilder on iPage to work? Many thanks for any comment. Another question I got... I'm getting a table-related error at the stage where the installer is connecting to and configuring the database:.

I uploaded and unpacked the latest .tgz package (2.2ms2-060817) on my Linux Apache server running PHP 5.05 and MySQL 4.1.9. I have created the blank database XXXXXX and assigned privileges to a user. I have quadruple-checked the database hostname (localhost is correct), username, database name, password – I have even tried multiple databases and users, including using the root user, but continue to get this message..

The error message does not indicate a username/password problem with the connection, rather that a table doesn't exist. Isn't the table supposed to be created by the installation scripts?.

What is the real problem here?.

Thanks, Fritz..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

I had the same problem, error 1146, table dbxxxxx.configuration doesn't exist. I tried your suggestion and now I get error 1046, no database selected..

Any other suggestions?.


(no, I'm not really a professor. My wife calls me that because I'm so often absent minded. lol)..

Same problems here - help on the fix much appreciated..

I tried running the oscommerce.sql directly in mySQL and got the following error:.

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1' at line 17.

Looks like this is the culprit but not sure how to fix?..

OK - I tried updating mySQL from version 4 to 5 and the problem is solved..
