did you do the initialisation by hand or via the install tool?

I am guessing you don't want any of the data in the db so if you can go to the DB drop the tables. Then run

mysql -uxxx -pxxx mydb < kernel/sql/mysql/kernel_clean.sql

This will create a clean db for you.

I hope this helps

i install by the install tool. no, i need the other tables in the db. i can`t drop them.

is there no way to install the tables manually perhaps with a sql file?

This is what this does. It installs the tables manually

mysql -uxxx -pxxx mydb < kernel/sql/mysql/kernel_clean.sql

Give it a try, but remember to drop the tables beforehand to clear out data.

phpMyAdmin is good for this if you are not happy doing it from the command line.

thanks but now i get this error message:


SQL-Command :

INSERT INTO ezcontentclass( id, version, name, identifier, contentobject_name, creator_id, modifier_id, created, modified )
VALUES ( 1, 0, 'Folder', 'folder', '<name>' , - 1, 14, 1024392098, 1048494694 )

MySQL announces:

Table 'DB18384.ezcontentclass' doesn't exist

but my DB is called DB18384. i do not know where the error is.

Try creating a new empty db and issuing the mysql command again. Sounds like there is content within the db already.

If you are getting errors when going through the setup try and skip that phase.

i can`t create an new empty db. i have only this db and it contains other tables, which i can`t drop. other applications use this db too. does ezp need a empty db?
