Problem installing multisite (5 posts)

    I've got huge problem with the installation , here's what happens:
    I download fresh 3.2.1 package from WordPress.org and unzip it, than I proceed with regular install - so far so good.
    The very first thing after installation is enabling wordpress mu. So I add define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE',true); to my wp-config, and then proceed with creating .htaccess, blogs.dir and applying further changes to wp-config.php. I log out, but when I log in again, my site is broken and I only get

    error estabilishing database connection

    .
    Then I have option to reapir my databese, so I proceed with that, only to get:

    Table 'xxx.wp_2_posts' doesn't exist
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_comments' doesn't exist
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_links' doesn't exist
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_options' doesn't exist
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_postmeta' doesn't exist.
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_terms' doesn't exist
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_term_taxonomy' doesn't exist
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_term_relationships' doesn't exist.
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_commentmeta' doesn't exist

    and also for each of those: Failed to repair table. and a suggestion to look for help in the forums :)

    I have no idea what am I doing wrong. I do everything by the book, I'm also absolutely, positively sure that my db user has all privileges for this database. It's a fresh wordpress install, so I don't have any plugins... I'd be grateful for any suggestions!

    ps. my website is hosted on dedicated server.

  2. What was the DB prefix you used? WP_?

    Unless you created a second site, it shouldn't be looking for wp_2_ anything.

    I didn't get to creating any sites in the network. The error message "error estabilishing database connection" is thrown when i log out (the last step of installation) and I log back in again. When I go to wp-admin it says that I should repair database, and then
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_posts' doesn't exist
    ...
    Table 'xxx.wp_2_commentmeta' doesn't exist

    And WordPress is unable to repair it.

    The prefix is wp_

  4. As this is a fresh install, delete the files and the DB and start over.

    Make SURE you get the network options in the 'tools' menu before continuing to add the data to .htaccess and wp-config.php.

    Tried that, no change. Are there any other specific server requirements that I missed?
