After looking for the right plugin via the Dashboard, verify that it's been tested and is compatible, I click "Install now." It installs fine. Then I click "Activate plugin." At this point I get the following error from the database:
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 'TYPE=MyISAM' at line 9 on line: 1471
I have no idea what that means. I click back in my browser, then go to the plugins page. There I see the plugin I just installed/tried to activate is active. What is causing this?
