    Hi, hope you can guide me to a solution.

    I downloaded the lastest stable 1.0.8. Unpacked into the root and launched the installer. Got only as far as step 2/3 where its simply not taking my:

    • - server (localhost)
    • - username (root)
    • - password (my password)
    • - database (aka)


    Also I am quite confused by what I should put into the field Database field? Is this the DB prefix that will be created? I also tried to create the DB manualy using mysql CREATE DATABASE aka; but still no luck.

    Hi Karol.

    You should first create a database on your server. If you use MySQL then you can create it through phpMyAdmin tool.

    Thank you Denis. I did create the Database. But just the database, no table structure. In case table structure is required, where do I find it?

    SOLVED: I did not have php-mysqli installed.

    apt-get install php-mysql

    did the trick.

    Hi Tukaram Khandgave

    The database needs to be empty.
