Database wiki exists
Creating tables... FAILED
Query "CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX si_title ON `searchindex` (si_title) " failed with error code "Column 'si_title' cannot be part of FULLTEXT index (localhost)".
After reload the installation page, it will continue because 'searchindex' already exist, but the mainpage, default user and l10n-cache may not be created properly.
Hmm, looks like we just need to set some collation for it explicitly, to prevent server defaults from interferring. latin1_swedish_ci?
The beta installer for 1.18 has hit this bug again; I see it when trying to install with r80627
I'm not sure how to interpret comment 2. Can varbinary columns have a collation at all? Changing severity to major, since this stops the installer even if 'utf8' is selected earlier.
this appears to be fixed for 1.17. Removing blocker there.
It's not present in REL1_17, but it is in trunk.
r80547 is to blame.

Are you still hitting this with head (r81026)? I'm pretty sure this is resolved.
This has just happened to me on git master. I changed database collation to utf8_general_ci, dropped all tables, refreshed the installer and it worked.
