hi *,

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

PHP 5.1.6 installed 
Found database drivers for: MySQL 
PHP server API is cgi-fcgi; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title) 
Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support. 
PHP is configured with no memory_limit. 
Have zlib support; enabling output compression. 
Couldn't find Turck MMCache, eAccelerator or APC. Object caching functions cannot be 
GNU diff3 not found.
Couldn't find GD library or ImageMagick; image thumbnailing disabled.

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.

greetings from germany

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.
