database setup in mysql issue

I go to the web interface at catalog/install and select Install a new online store. I leave both boxes checked on the next page and click Continue. I type in localhost for my Database Server, then put in my root username, password, and database name for the osCommerce DB. I leave Persistent Connections unchecked and select Database for my Session Storage, then click Continue.

 

I am then shown a partial page at catalog/install/install.php?step=2 which shows only New Installation underlined in the upper left, Database Import in bold underneath that, and the osCommerce logo in the upper right. All else is blank white background.

 

No error message on the web page, no error message in my httpd error log, no error message in my mysql error log.

 

Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

can someone pcanywhere into my server and config it???

No clue, but if you can get to the mysql command line interface (e.g. when I use a DOS window on my Win98, and go to the c:\mysql\bin directory I can type in the command to import the sql file, something like:

 

mysql -h localhost -u root -p nameofthedatabasetobe < c:\full\path\to\catalog\install\oscommerce.sql [ENTER]

and you should be challenged for the password then:

Password: typeinthepasswordforuserroot_or_whoeveristheuser[ENTER]

 

and you should be in business.
