New installation, multiple problems (5 posts)

    Brand spanking new installation of Apache, MySQL, PHP and WordPress. Followed instructions in documentation to the 'T' and WordPress started right up. Good job!

    However, several problems exist that I didn't expect in a stable release.

    Problem #1 - Uploading Files
    -------------------------------------------
    Don't even know where to start on this one. This is a major flaw in the code, or I missed some sort of critical installation step.

    WordPress database error: [Field 'post_content_filtered' doesn't have a default value]
    INSERT INTO criminal_posts (post_author, post_date, post_date_gmt, post_content, post_title, post_excerpt, post_status, comment_status, ping_status, post_password, post_name, to_ping, pinged, post_modified, post_modified_gmt, post_parent, menu_order, post_mime_type, guid) VALUES ('1', '2006-07-28 11:52:15', '2006-07-28 15:52:15', '', 'Excel', '', 'attachment', 'open', 'open', '', 'excel', '', '', '2006-07-28 11:52:15', '2006-07-28 15:52:15', '-1154101906', '0', 'image/gif', 'http://www.fusioncube.net/wp-content/uploads/2006/07/excel.gif')

    SELECT category_id FROM criminal_post2cat WHERE post_id =

    Problem #2 - Archives
    ----------------------------------
    Ok, so I gave up on uploading images and started creating some of my text-only posts. Everything's good, but when I click on the Archive link for this month, I get a 404. The directory and files aren't being created.
    Should they exist for the current month?
    If so, why aren't they there?
    If not, why is the link being created in the sidebar?

    Problem #3 - Blogger Import
    ------------------------------------
    Just flat out doesn't work. Hard to describe error, but when I start the import function, all it does is show a badly parsed verion of the Blogger login screen in the window. Have started this process, at least, 20 times. Fails the same everytime.

    I'm not wp expert but about your 2nd problem:

    Don't expect any archive folders or post files to be created on the host side. All of that is generated on the fly. I realize that doesn't explain the 404 though...

    Almost all of item 1 points to some serious database issues (and no, I don't think I would say this is common!).

    Frankly, I'd probably drop the db, recreate and run the install again to have WP recreate the tables. But if you're a db sort of person, then instead check all the tables and ensure the auto-generated keys are actually working (sure looks they are not).

    Ok, after reading another person's question who just posted, I changed the permalink style back to default and the 404 is gone (which makes sense), so I'm forgetting about those cool other options for now.

    They are dead to me (pun intended)

    I'll drop/recreate the DB as a last resort, but I'm going to poke into the code first. I checked the tables, and each message is getting an ID, so the keys "seem" to be working fine. The code's just not grabbing them. I'm only intermediate in PHP knowledge, so I will probly end up scrapping the DB in the end.

    Thanks for the ideas, guys.

    Today's my lucky day. Finally got the right search words and found http://wordpress.org/support/topic/49232?replies=9.

    All I had to do was alter the 'criminal_posts' table to allow nulls in the 'post_content_filtered' field.

    All is well in the WordPress world now (well, except for the fact that I still can't import my Blogger posts).
