i'm just trying to set up mediawiki on my server. i run Microsoft 2003 Server (German),
IIS 6.0, php 5.1.6 and mysql 5.0.26. running config/index.php everything looks fine and
it is trying to set up everything. in fact, database is created an a new user is set but
config/LocalSetting.php doesn't exist. script output is

column 'user_password' can't have a default value (localhost)".
during troubleshooting i also set filepermission for everyone to Full control. nothing
changed. also in log's there is no hint where the problem is.
in one how-to i found that sonfig should show the content of LocalSetting.php if it
could net create it.
please give me a hint where my problem is.

Did you recognized the error?
[...] " failed with error code "BLOB/TEXT column 'user_password' can't have a
default value (localhost)". [...]
Did you provide a password for "Admin username:"? Maybe try another one.
