Installation problem

    I followed the instructions to install and got this error that I need help interpreting and resolving:

    SQL ERROR!

    >>> Database: wildfelid (localhost)

    >>>>>> CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS bb_posts (

    post_id bigint(20) NOT NULL auto_increment,

    forum_id int(10) NOT NULL default 1,

    topic_id bigint(20) NOT NULL default 1,

    poster_id int(10) NOT NULL default 0,

    post_text text NOT NULL,

    post_time datetime NOT NULL default ‘0000-00-00 00:00:00’,

    poster_ip varchar(15) NOT NULL default ”,

    post_status tinyint(1) NOT NULL default 0,

    post_position bigint(20) NOT NULL default 0,

    PRIMARY KEY (post_id),

    KEY topic_time (topic_id, post_time),

    KEY poster_time (poster_id, post_time),

    KEY post_time (post_time),

    FULLTEXT KEY post_text (post_text)

    ) TYPE = MYISAM DEFAULT CHARACTER SET ‘utf8’;

    >>>>>> You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘TYPE = MYISAM DEFAULT CHARACTER SET ‘utf8” at line 16

    The setup did not create the necessary tables in my database for some reason even though the access details are correct.

    Not sure but I doubt it has something to do with the database collation. Try installing with a database which has its collation set to utf8_unicode_ci

    Thanks. When I returned this evening the database was magically populated with the bbPress tables. Any idea why I would get that kind of error during installation, then somehow it fixes itself? I’m assume it’s fixed anyway, I haven’t yet taken it for a test run but should be OK. Very strange.

    Uh-oh I thought one of the strong points of bbPress was supposed to be its security. Looks like a bit of a breach here.

    Actually after reading something else, it would probably be good for me to validate if all of the tables installed. The ones that did are:

    bb_forums

    bb_meta

    bb_terms

    bb_term_relationships

    bb_term_taxonomy

    bb_topics

    bb_usermeta

    bb_users

    Can someone tell me if these are all of the tables that should have installed to my database. I read in another forum (a bit dated) that there should be a bb_post table and wondered if that were correct for the current bbPress or are any other tables missing? Thank you.

    Is there a specific reason you went with the stand alone install and not the plugin?
