Hi all.

 

I'm a newbie. In the installatin process I met a problem that is reported by many; but I haven't found a clear description of what causes it and how to solve it.

 

I am trying to install osCommerce 2.2 -CVS on a unix server.

 

At stage 7 of the installation i get an error saying about this:

 

A test connection made to the database was NOT successful.

 

The error message returned is:

 

Table 'myserver_mydb.configuration' doesn't exist

 

Please click on the Back button below to review your database server settings.

 

If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company.

 

As you can imagine, my isp doesn't know anything about this. I have been reading around and it seems that there have been two ways in the past to solve the problem:

 

1. to check a checkbox which ask to import some daafile inside the DB. This is unuseful to me, as I have no data to import. However, in the version I uploaded, there is no checkbox to check(I could test it with some dummy data). In the file oscommerce.sql there are some data to test it (I suppose). At this step the system confirmed that data importation went well.

 

2. To create a configuration table, say with PHPAdmin. Somebody posted a table, but I am esitating in doing this as a configuration table looks somehow a vaultkey of the site and I do not have enough experience to understand what I am going to do.

 

I tried to create a table in the DB, supposing that the creation of a configuration table was something automated in the DB, but this wasn't successfull.

 

Any clue? Thank you and angels singing.

The script is not connecting to your database with the information you supplied.

 

Have you created an empty database and assigned a user/password to it?

 

The database server is usually 'localhost'

Yes. However the un/pw belongs to an user, in my MySQL: the db in itself has no us/pw. Seeing the error, I created a table in it also, imagining that the configuration tabel was something that the db could create by itself. Same error. Then I deleted the db and installed a new one, with a new user. Same error. All the steps until the 7nth went well.

 

Thanks for your help.
