Install problem - Stephen - 01-13-2010

I don't have root access so I followed the manual install instructions as best I could. My website is on a shared host using CPanel so I don't have telnet available to me either. I do have the CPanel MySql access and phpMyAdmin at my disposal. Using these tools I created a database with the necessary permissions and a user for the database.

When I run opendocman and try to log in with 'admin' and no password I receive the following error:

Error in query: SELECT id, username, password FROM user WHERE username = 'admin' AND password = password(''). Table 'ability_opendoc.user' doesn't exist

I'm not much of a programmer but I can muddle through php code to figure out what is supposed to happen. I see in the "automatic setup" where the tables are created, but under the "manual setup" I cannot find where the tables are supposed to be created, nor are there any instructions on how to set up the tables. I'm totally lost!!! Any help would be appreciated...

If you read towards the bottom of Step 4 in the manual installation docs it refers to importing the database.sql file into your database...

Okay, now I feel like a real idiot! It was right there in front of me the whole time and I just kept overlooking it. Sorry to waste you time, but I hope you got a little laugh out of it!!! You are awesome and thanks for the quick response!
