Hi guy's

Did a new install yesturday using the same database as one of my other sites use.

I configured config.php to add "shop" as prefix to separate the new tables from the existing called "nuke".

Then I ran the InstallSQL.php.

As stated in the istaller the tables are replaced and they certainly was Crying or Very sad

The new tables was installed prefixed as "nuke" even though config.php said "shop".

Now to my question.

Is this correct?
Is it possible to make a new install using the installer and use an existing database and separate the tables with the prefix-comand in config.php?

Unfortunatly I was to eager to get the new site upp and running so I made no backup of the old site which now is gone, gone, gone Crying or Very sad

Oh, well s**t happens, but I'd like some input on how things work, or should work.

Cheers / B

Unfortunitly it looks like the installer uses the prefix nuke and does not call from the prefix set in config.php.


I am currently on my way to work, but I will make the installer call from the $prefix from config.php and post a link to get the altered copies.

Others may have already developed such an installer. Either way, this is not a complicated scenerio, Just a lot of edits to make Laughing

No worries, well have it for you asap.

Yes i guess I could, but its to late now Wink Old tableas are gone.

I just wanted to know how the installer workes and if that is the correct way...

I figure that if you have the prefix attribute in config.php you might as well use it...

Well, 2.10.00 was modified to do this already and the installer is copyrighted by Raven and he requests that it not be distributed (per his comments in the script).

The problem you reference (using Nuke instead of $prefix) was corrected in the version that's under development on May 1. Unfortunately the version that's currently available for download was generated before May 1 so the bug is still in there.

Code in the old version reads like this:

Code:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `nuke_authors`;

CREATE TABLE `nuke_authors` ( `aid` varchar(25)  bla bla bla


Whereas code in the new verison reads like:

Code:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS $prefix.`_authors`;

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS $prefix.`_authors` ( `aid`


Unless this "fix" can be "backported" you are stuck with this until 2.10 is released. The problem is that backporting would require retesting and making sure that other things aren't unglued and would divert attention from getting the new release out the door. You could I suppose, armed with the knowledge dispensed here make global changes to the files in the SQL directory under the INSTALLATION directory of the 2.02 distribution.
