I am having a hard time with the set-up of this. The mySQL database is set-up and is the correct version. The driver is the correct version as well. When I start the forums for the first time, I do NOT receive the set-up wizard. Instead, I am receiving the following error:

Server Error in Forum Application
An error initialising Global Variables from database.
Please contact the Forum Administrator.

Support Error Code:- err_mySQL_getForumConfigurationData()_read_global_variables
File Name:- global_variables_inc.asp
Forum Version:- 11.08

Error details:-
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers
[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.1.73-community]Table 'forums.tblsetupoptions' doesn't exist

I thought the set-up wizard is supposed to set-up the database tables?
I am setting up the forums script in a sub-directory. I was told that this could be done and the forums script ddoes not have to be in the root directoy.

Any help with this would be well appreciated.

A problem was found in the database files that has now been fixed.

Download web wiz forums again and replace the files in the 'database' folder.

This should allow the setup wizard to run.
