Problem during Installation
November 18, 2005 11:08PM
At the Step 3 I face some strange problem.

I do fill every input, except upgrade, but I see error message:
"Error: The database-server couldn't create the tables. It's an upgrade, perhaps?"

For sure, it`s not upgrade - database is empty. CHMOD for settings/ folder and forum.php is right also.

But if I check "Check here if this is an upgrade." then installation continue and succesful... Then, when I trying to create a new Forum or Folder I see this error message:

"Could not add forum to the main table (forums). Database error: Table '*****_forum.forums' doesn't exist."

I think it happen cause I choose upgrade option...


Please help, do not know how to install correct.

why are you installing an old phorum-version there?

I`ve tried Phorum3 here www.dsiware.com/forums and I like it. Also I need:
- very simple forum engine cause main user will be kids about 10-14 years old. Otherwise I`ll use Invision Power Board.
- I was sure that old version is more stable...

Look, it`s different question, I just wonder why it`s not work and how to solve it.

the currently supported version is phorum 5.0.x, thats why I name it an old version, its outdated and will not work on every current php/mysql versions.

that might be exactly the problem you are facing, if you run mysql-4.1.x or higher there can be problems with the table-creation as those scripts were not updated in phorum3 anymore.
phorum5 shouldn't be much more complex than phorum5.

Sad... Whatever... What do you think about older phorums versions - "Classic Versions"?

I`ve tried to install versions 15 and 16 - my phpmyadmin failed to read dumb from both SQL files... :(

==================================
SQL-çàïðîñ:

# MySQL dump 4.0
#
#--------------------------------------------------------
#
# Table structure for table 'forum'
#
CREATE TABLE forum(

id int( 11 ) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
name varchar( 30 ) ,
email varchar( 100 ) ,
topic varchar( 50 ) ,
body blob,
host varchar( 50 ) ,
thread int( 11 ) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL ,
datestamp datetime DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00' NOT NULL ,
KEY datestamp( datestamp ) ,
PRIMARY KEY ( id ) ,
KEY thread( thread )
)
Îòâåò MySQL:

#1067 - Invalid default value for 'id'

ah you mean old 1.5 and 1.6 ... see the text on the page:
"These are here for nostalgia more than anything. Don't ask for support on them."
those were written years over years ago.

you should really try 5.0.21 with that hosting configuration. I doubt that phorum3 will ever run with that.

It`s done. I installed version 5.19 long ago and now finishing translation of russian lang file. There are a lot of problem with encoding... uhh... but I do not gonna give up:) Okay then, I`ll simplify this version. The real problem is sometimes I can not understand what file exactly I should edit, cause there no folder name, and there two files with the same name... Actually I do nat understand how to install treeview.php to my phorum lookslike a phorum3.

It`s enough to make only one, but it should clear:)

At this thread [http://phorum.org/phorum5/read.php?17,4696,page=5] I posted russian localization for phorum 5.019, and russified admin panel, if someone need it...
