MySQL returned error "0: "
Comment 1 Oswald Jaskolla 2006-09-11 20:42:53 UTC
Installation went fine after dropping the database and proceeding with
'examwiki%pluto' as password.
Comment 2 Oswald Jaskolla 2006-09-11 20:48:33 UTC
"There are already MediaWiki tables in this database" because this is what I got
when running the installation script for the first time and then
Firefox->View->Page Source (Not sure about the stack trace, though).
