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

Postby GennadyK » Tue Apr 24, 2007 10:48 am

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 and restarting the installation process.
