XF 1.2 Installation error


Active member

I tried to install xf 1.2.4 from scratch and I am alway seeing this error after the tables are generated:
Server Error

Server Error

Mysqli statement execute error : Table 'xf_language' already exists

I tried different Browsers (Safari, Chrome, Opera Next) but this error always shows up.

Please advice what to do.

Are you clicking the continue button during the install or do you just allow the process to complete?

Drop all of the tables from the database and try again, without clicking the button.

That did the trick, thank you!

The Browser showed no sign, that there was work in progress and so clicking "continue" seemed to be a good idea. Maybe you could add some explaining text?

Thanks again!
