Support » Installing WordPress » Database syntax errors!

  • Installed wp once on my host- worked beautifully.
    Tweaked a little too much and it quit working so beautifully.
    Erased EVERYTHING, started over with new db, new wp files.
    Now when I try to install, I get this:
    Database error: [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 ‘Array’ at line 1]
    I have tried multiple versions of wordpress, as well as different config.php files, I even went so far as to change the octals on the files and folders. Nothing works.
    Please help.

    UPDATE: Tech support reset permissions on my server, problem solved

    Definitely a new db ?
    That would seem to be some leftover code maybe.. how did you ‘do’ the new db ?

    My db is created automatically by my host. I have a little button on my control panel that says “enable mysql”, and voila- a new db is created. When I click the button that says “disable mysql” that db is (or so my host tells me) completely erased, and all tables, info and everything else is deleted. So, by disabling, then re-enabling mysql- I should start with a completely new- untouched db. I e-mailed tech support for my host. Still waiting on a reply from them.
