To be exact, I have downloaded and installed nextgen-gallery 1.6.2 on my first wordpress installation on this machine, and it worked fine.
Tried to install the plugin on my second wp website on the same machine. After activating I get the following message:
"Please update the database of NextGEN Gallery. Click here to proceed."
"NextGEN Gallery : Tables could not created, please check your database settings"
when I click on the link I get the below message:
"The script detect that you upgrade from a older version. Your database tables for NextGEN Gallery is out-of-date, and must be upgraded before you can continue. If you would like to downgrade later, please make first a complete backup of your database and the images.
The upgrade process may take a while, so please be patient.
Start upgrade now..."
When click on "Start upgrade now..." it goes to next error message as below:
Could not find NextGEN Gallery database tables, upgrade failed !
I am hosting both versions locally (local.site.v1 $ local.site.v2)
they have separate databases (wordpres £ mysiteV4)
table_prefix for wordpres database is wp_
table_prefix for mysiteV4 database is wpV4_
------------- ------------- ------------- -------------
I have deactivated the plugin on both sites and activated it on the second one only; didn't work!
Tried also deleting and manually recreating the database tables as some suggested in following threads:
also tried changing the database charset to latin1 and utf8 and back with no joy.
...and next I will probably plan banging my head against a solid wall :/
thoughts would still be highly appreciated...
