KFM dont work - database not created

KFM dont work - database not created

Hello Webassist and users. I have a fresh install DW5 with HTML editor 3.0.1

Just created a small custom CMS with HTML editor at the back end. After uploading all files and set the configuration file I get the error:

alert("MDB2 Error: no such table\nselect * from wafm2_parameters")

...when accessing the KFM part of the editor ("Browse server button")

Note that this message is not "alerted" but written as above in a popup browser window.

I did double-check the settings for the database and so but without success. It seem that the initial database creation fails. The database has no tables that start with the prefix (wafm2_) so the process is halted early it seem. I've been looking for other answers in the KFM community but this seem without luck. Can you please help?

Kind regards Joa

Solution

Did you have HTML Editor 2 installed before?

If so:
Use a database admin tool like phpMyAdmin and delete all tables related to the "KFM"-filemanager.
Be sure to make backups of these tables before deleting them, in case something goes wrong.
All the tables have a naming convention like "kfm_something_somthingelse".

Then apply the new "HTML Editor 3" to your form page. Preview your form page in the browser. When using the filemanager for the first time, you will be asked to reload the page to have tha database refreshed. At that point all the necessary "kfm" database tables will be created and everything should now work.

greetings

Willi

Thanks for your suggestion, however this does not apply. The entire site is created from scratch using a complete newly installed DW5 AND HTML editor 3.0.1. So there is no old tables like you suggest.

The HTML-editor loads just fine on my form pages, however the filebrowser won't load with the error message above, and there are no tables created.

I HAVE double checked and the database connection is correctly set up.

Any other thoughts? Thank you for helping!!!

Probably solved:

I see my ISP provided MySQL version 4.0.24 - so it is probably due to the old version, I see that the file manager requires version 5 to work.

Anyone can confirm? I'll contact my ISP and see what they can do.

Yes, the file manager does need MySQL 5 or greater to work, you will need to upgrade the MySQL server.
