Description Markus Krötzsch 2007-10-18 21:08:59 UTC
== Dan Thomas writes on the mediawiki list ==

Don't know if this is related, but did a clean install of MW 1.11.0.
Added SMW 0.7 as first extension.
Set $wgDBuser/$wgDBpassword to root account in LocalSettings.php

When click Initialize button on Special:SMWAdmin, receive following error:

Database error A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate
a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "SMW::setupDatabase". MySQL returned error "1064: 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 '-gen.`smw_relations`
( subject_id INT(8) UNSIGNED NOT NULL, su' at line 1 (localhost)".

== Later ==

Figured out problem/solution to my issue.  The mediawiki database name
contained a hyphen '-' wikidb-gen

Mediawiki does a clean install and seems to work fine.  Semantic Mediawiki
will not initialize.
