HELP!!!!!! Database issue on install.

Well I guess you'd call it an installation. I messed up the previous database, so deleted it, then created a new database and uploaded the XF files again, overwriting the old ones.

When I go to myforum.com/install, I get a whole slew of db errors!

So this is essentially a brand new install as you have deleted and recreated the database and re-uploaded the files?
Did you also delete any add-on files, if you had any installed?

It could be a caching error as it seems to be referencing a database table which hasn't yet been created as you haven't got to that step in the install process.

You could try restarting apache - that seems to solve quite a few problems when it comes to moving installations so it might also work here.

This will happen if you try to run the installer while there is an install-lock.php file in the internal_data folder (because of the previous installation).

Delete internal_data/install-lock.php before you attempt a reinstallation.
