  • I’ve received this error as well. I’m using mysql 3.23.58, apache 1.3.33, and php 4.1.
    I don’t have connection errors, just dozens of mysql errors, the first of which is:
    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax near ‘-inst_categories ( cat_ID int(4) NOT NULL auto_increment, cat_name varchar(5’ at line 1]
    CREATE TABLE wp_wp-inst_categories ( cat_ID int(4) NOT NULL auto_increment, cat_name varchar(55) NOT NULL default ”, category_nicename varchar(200) NOT NULL default ”, category_description text NOT NULL, category_parent int(4) NOT NULL default ‘0’, PRIMARY KEY (cat_ID), UNIQUE KEY cat_name (cat_name), KEY category_nicename (category_nicename) )
    and the last of which is:
    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax near ‘-inst_comments SET comment_type=’pingback’, comment_content = REPLACE(comment_co’ at line 1]
    UPDATE wp_wp-inst_comments SET comment_type=’pingback’, comment_content = REPLACE(comment_content, ”, ”) WHERE comment_content LIKE ‘%’

    I’m having the exact same problem. Has anyone found a solution to this yet?

    I had the problem and had to change the table prefix in wp-settings – for some reason it was picking up a backslash (could magic quotes be turned on here?) that was blowing up the table create script.

    You’re not installing it correctly – if “wp-inst” is in the url you’re calling during the install replace it with “main”. It doesn’t exist in the filesystem but mod_rewrite will handle the request correctly if it’s installed. You shouldn’t need to change any table prefix.
