This error hapens if the wa_settings table falils to be created.

Run the following SQL Command using PHPMyAdmin to create the wa_settings table:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS wa_settings (
`id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`name` varchar(50) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`type` varchar(50) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`options` text COLLATE latin1_bin,
`value` varchar(255) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`grp` varchar(50) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`subcategory` varchar(50) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`cond` varchar(255) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`description` varchar(255) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`variable` varchar(50) COLLATE latin1_bin DEFAULT NULL,
`weight` float DEFAULT NULL,
`spry_args` text COLLATE latin1_bin,
`spry_error` text COLLATE latin1_bin,
`help_text` text COLLATE latin1_bin,
PRIMARY KEY (id)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 COLLATE=latin1_bin;

INSERT INTO `wa_settings` (`name`,`type`,`options`,`value`,`grp`,`subcategory`,`cond`,`description`,`variable`,`weight`,`spry_args`,`spry_error`,`help_text`)
VALUES
('Site Name', NULL, NULL, 'My Site', NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL,'Site_Name', NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL),

Okay that worked and it took me to the login page, when I logged the UI didn't show up and I got this message:

Table 'antronix_admin2013.pcms2_users' doesn't exist

Looks like it didn't run the db script to create the tables for some reason.

use the install_cms/scripts/db.sql file to create the CMS tables.

I copy the code and pasted it into the SQL and ran it but got an error:

Error
SQL query:

--
-- Dumping data for table `optiongroups`
--
INSERT INTO `optiongroups` ( `OptionGroupID` , `OptionGroupName` )
VALUES ( 1, 'color' ) , ( 2, 'size' ) ;


MySQL said:

#1062 - Duplicate entry '1' for key 1

Ok, i guess, some tables did get created.

use this sql to crreate the users table:

CREATE TABLE `pcms2_users` (
`UserID` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`UserEmail` varchar(500) default NULL,
`UserPassword` varchar(500) default NULL,
`UserFirstName` varchar(50) default NULL,
`UserLastName` varchar(50) default NULL,
`UserCity` varchar(90) default NULL,
`UserState` varchar(20) default NULL,
`UserZip` varchar(12) default NULL,
`UserEmailVerified` tinyint(1) default '0',
`UserRegistrationDate` timestamp NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
`UserVerificationCode` varchar(20) default NULL,
`UserIP` varchar(50) default NULL,
`UserPhone` varchar(20) default NULL,
`UserFax` varchar(20) default NULL,
`UserCountry` varchar(20) default NULL,
`UserAddress` varchar(100) default NULL,
`UserAddress2` varchar(50) default NULL,
`UserGroupID` int(11) NOT NULL default '1',
