=======================

I'm installing Concrete 5 version 5.7.2 on iPage.com. I chose "Full site" rather than "Empty site".

Here's the error message I get each time:
=========
An exception occurred while executing 'SELECT SUPPORT FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ENGINES WHERE ENGINE = 'InnoDB'': SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1109 Unknown table 'ENGINES' in information_schema
=========

I searched the forum for some of the key phrases from the above, but haven't found anything about this particular error.
Thanks for any help.

looks like you've uncovered a brand new issue. 5.7.2 has a new feature where it checks if innodb is supported. It looks as though the check won't work on your installation.

I'd query your host with the error - but do you think in the meantime you could raise a bug report here. It would probably be useful to see your environment information.

Environment:
Host: iPage.com
MySQL: 5.5.32
PHP: 5.3
RAM: 196 MB
Perl: 5.8.8

I'm new at this, so if there is more info needed, please let me know.
Thanks!

My impression from reading about this error message is that your MySQL version is less than 5.1.5, which is perhaps a bit too old for 5.7.

It could be a case of 5.7 doing some sort of database check, one that needs to be handled slightly differently to handle older database versions. (or maybe the docs need to be updated to saying something like 5.2+ as the MySQL requirement)

The suggestion here then would be to try with a server with a more recent MySQL version.

I think this would be worthy of submitting as a bug report as well, if it's not listed already.

The server uses MySQL: 5.5.32.

I asked the tech support at iPage.com to check on this issue. Here is their report.

I have tried to install the Concrete 5 application and I received an error message. I have checked the screenshot that you have provided. It looks like the Concrete 5 application cannot be installed. I have checked a few forums and it looks like the application is doing some sort of database check, one that needs to be handled slightly differently to handle older database versions. There are bugs related to this error. Therefore, I request you to use any other lower version of the Concrete 5 application and try to install it.

P.S. I've reported this to the Bug Tracker. Is it appropriate to keep posting here? Thanks for guidance.
