DB Installation errors


Recommended Posts

hi ppl,


On a second installation of OSC, I seem to be having problems with configuring the DB. I purged the previous installation's DB, which is being used for this install.


I get this message after filling out my DB details:


New Installation


osCommerce Configuration


A test connection made to the database was NOT successful.


The error message returned is:


Table 'staniar.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.



'staniar' is the name of my DB.



Any ideas folks?

in the field you put:

database_server = localhost

username = your database username

password = your database password

database_name = staniar

ask your hosting provider because (like myself) when i create a new database name osc it automatically create the database thebear_osc

Samething with username

after a little bit of experimentation, I tried an installation with and without importing catalog database ticked. Automatic configuration is always ticked.


Now, when 'Import Catalog Database:' is ticked, the installation works, however when it isn't ticked, it doesn't! Any ideas?
