I just got my xenforo today and received the MYSQL error which the forums are saying require a mysql restart.
I have contacted my host about this and they will do it eventually, but in the meantime it is saying (at step 2 where I got the error then um...refreshed...)
"You cannot proceed unless all XenForo database tables are removed."
Is this still going to be there once they restart the MySQL, or will it be OK?
Should I delete and remake the database before the restart?
This is a fresh install so no data would get lost that would hurt.
EDIT: They replied and I still had that error so I deleted the DB and remade it with the same name. Seems to be installing fine.
Hope this thread helps someone else in the future
Just a note this is what their IT said
IO ran FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK; on the backend. seems there were stale locks.
