Default Database Installation Woes!!


Recommended Posts

Please pardon my newbie ignorance.


I am struggling getting this fantastic program up and running. Installation via the install/install.php route goes without problems.


On attempting to run the ./catalog/index.php script I am told that certain tables in the database are missing. Sure enough, when I compared the "oscommerce.sql" file in the /install directory this includes source coding for tables that are missing when I run the "show tables" command in MySQL.


I wondered about the 1st line in the original source (the destroy if...line) so I made a copy of the source, deleted these and then renamed it as the original. Having re-run the install code several times it still excludes the same tables for no apparent reason!!!


Anybody willing to assist me with my fumblings. Thanks.
