Mambo & MySql Connection ERROR

Postby mophsy » 14. July 2005 01:23

Hi,

I want you to help me in a big problem! My Xampp is running smooth. I didnt have any problem with it.
I installed Mambo CMS on my Xampp directory and everithing was ok. I worked 3 weeks on a portal for my community and when i exported the data base to the my hosting server was a total error!

I thought it was this because of some securities on that server ie. safe-mode=on; register_globals=on;

I tried this: i downloaded MSAS [Mambo Stand Alone Server] for me to work and i installed Mambo ->smooth. I exported the data base to my hosting server = NO ERRORS!

I cleaned the data base in MSAS and tried to import the one that i worked in Xampp => ERROR.

The problem is with MySQL connection. I dont know at all PHP, MySQL a.s.o. I worked 3 weeks on that portal and i want somehow not to work the portal again. Please help!!!

I want to remain also on Xampp BUT not to have errors on my MySQL connection, because is the most user friendly Apache Server that i found and is very easy to me to work in it!

Below is the error that i encounter all the time:

Code: Select all
 SQL Command:

CREATE TABLE `mos_banner` (
`bid` int( 11 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
`cid` int( 11 ) NOT NULL default '0',
`type` varchar( 10 ) COLLATE latin1_general_ci NOT NULL default 'banner',
`name` varchar( 50 ) COLLATE latin1_general_ci NOT NULL default '',
`imptotal` int( 11 ) NOT NULL default '0',
`impmade` int( 11 ) NOT NULL default '0',
`clicks` int( 11 ) NOT NULL default '0',
`imageurl` varchar( 100 ) COLLATE latin1_general_ci NOT NULL default '',
`clickurl` varchar( 200 ) COLLATE latin1_general_ci NOT NULL default '',
`date` datetime default NULL ,
`showBanner` tinyint( 1 ) NOT NULL default '0',
`checked_out` tinyint( 1 ) NOT NULL default '0',
`checked_out_time` datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00',
`editor` varchar( 50 ) COLLATE latin1_general_ci default NULL ,
`custombannercode` text COLLATE latin1_general_ci,
PRIMARY KEY ( `bid` ) ,
KEY `viewbanner` ( `showBanner` )
) ENGINE = MYISAM DEFAULT CHARSET = latin1 COLLATE = latin1_general_ci AUTO_INCREMENT =3


MySQL said:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax.  Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'collate latin1_general_ci NOT NULL default 'banner',
  `name`


I suspect is smth with a connection with the database.

Please, if you can, help me...not to start over a 3 weeks project worked almost day and nights!

Thanks in advanced!

According to the MySQL manual, it looks like whenever you use COLLATE, it needs to be preceded by CHARACTER SET (or CHARSET):

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/charset-examples.html (see Example 1)

But since you're specifying a default CHARSET/COLLATE for the table as a whole, I think you can simply get rid of the COLLATE clauses for the individual columns.

Oh my God!!!!!

I solved the problem! I cheked : MySQL compatibility 4.0 and eliminate all the "latin1_general_ci" from the table structure:

Results: Command Succesfully executed!

I wanted to share this for others to know if they will have the same problem!

Love MAMBO & XAMPP!!!
