Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

SOLVED! :D The problem was that the phpMyAdmin tool was installed, but not configured for Apache2. I also used 'expert' installation this time ( but that probably had no part in the solution) Now all of the tables are present. Here they are (I changed table prefix to 's9y') in case someone else has ...

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

I'm finally able to login into my blog (same credentials), but there is a new error: (!) The Serendipity JavaScript-library could not be loaded. This can happen due to PHP or Plugin errors, or even a malformed browser cache. To check the exact error please open index.php?/plugin/admin/serendipity_ed...

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

CREATE DATABASE s9y CHARACTER SET utf8mb4;

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

Ok, found it. So mysqli.inc.php is just a collection of functions. The debug statement looks like it would be used while executing queries. Not clear how it would be used to troubleshoot my problem. I'm trying to launch phpMyAdmin. Never used it before. http://localhost/phpmyadmin doesn't seem to wo...

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

I'm trying to add this debug snippet, as referenced by SlidingHorn in his fix, but I don't seem to have a '/include/db' directory. Does that mean I have not fully installed the LAMP utilities? UPDATE 2: Garvin was helping via Twitter, and had me add the following to my /include/db/mysqli.inc.php COD...

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

Just tried installing for a 4th time. Getting same nonsense: a table is missing, yet the installer thinks the install was 'successfully installed'. See screen shot below. Still can't login. (Using same credentials for user/passwd for database (s9y) and admin (blog).

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

Even though the install was declared 'success' by the installer, I am not able to use s9y because it refuses to let me login, with invalid user/passw error. I know the credentials are correct because I can log into mysql directly with them. Here are the tables in the s9y database, created by the ins...

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

I still have not figured out why this error has been generated. What is table 'serendipity_config' used for and who is supposed to create it? Attached is a screen shot of the peculiar way the error is displayed. Peculiar because the error message is repeated many times at the top and side of the scr...

Re: Table serendipity_config not created on install

The first time, yes, I created the database (which I named "serendipity") before installing, and got the 'serenditity_config not created' error. So I deleted the 'serendipity' database and ran the install the 2nd time (with proposed name "s9y"), without creating it in mysql (because the installation...

Table serendipity_config not created on install

I installed using instructions here: https://docs.s9y.org/docs/users/getting ... ation.html, with database name='s9y'.

Got error "Table 's9y.serendipity_config' doesn't exist", otherwise install completed successfully.

Deleted everything and installed again with same result.
