I'm no expert in installing PHP / MySQL applications but I was curious
about your error as I had successfully installed Oscailt 3 on a Win2k
machine without the above errors. I did a little research and found the
following MySQL bug report: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=19498
I upgraded MySQL to the most recent free production version for Windows
(5.0.37-community-nt) and I was able to duplicate your errors.
I was able to get around this problem by making a few small edits to the
objects/installdatabase.inc file: For each field with a data type of
text (or mediumtext), I removed the default value when the table was
being created. e.g in line 108 I changed it from
story_summary text NOT NULL default ''
story_summary text NOT NULL
>From what I've read in the bug report above, this should be safe enough
but I'm no expert on Oscailt and I don't have time to test these edits
and can't offer any guarantees that this won't cause further problems.
However some of the PHP coders on this list will probably know more
