This is when it gets to install/index.php?install/step/2 - after checking the checkbox to delete all xenforo data in the db.

That's a weird error - not one that I've ever had, and that table hasn't changed since day one. Can you reproduce it consistently?

The error makes it sound like it's being dropped twice.

I've only gotten it once, it hangs on this page for the rest of the time. If I get impatient and click the button again, it errors out with that, or another I got was "An unexpected database error occurred".

Edit: and now it's working. very strange. I guess you can put this one down to me overzealously clicking too much eh?
