What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

An error occurred creating the tables. Error 1101: BLOB/TEXT

Hi there,

When I attempt to install OCS, I get the following error message during database creation:

Code: Select all
An error occurred creating the tables. Error 1101: BLOB/TEXT column 'intro' can't have a default value

I have already manually created the database, and checked the "database exists" box... has anyone else encountered this problem?

I am using the following:
PHP Version 5.1.4
Open Conference Systems: Version 1.1.7
Web: IIS 6.0
Server API CGI/FastCGI
OS: Windows 2003

Thanks for your help!

Hi Gennady,

This appears to be specific to the newest releases of MySQL. Try applying the patch at http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs/download/blob-defaults.diff and restarting the installation process.
