Failing Concrete5 installation

Permalink
Hi there,
My hosting provider has a Concrete5 quick installation option and I went for it 5 days ago. When I tried to modify themes and some CSS I realized there weren't files in my server. So, I decided to install the C5 using the traditional way, via FTP.
I also deleted from my Myphpadmin the database the quick installation created, so I could install the CMS installation from scratch.

As result, when attempting to install the CMS I get the following error message: Unable to connect to database. A database error occurred while processing this request. I don't know what to do now, could you please give me a hand. I will appreciate it!!

Thanks a lot!!!

Kind Regards,
Gregorio

In your ROOT > config folder there is a file called "site.php". Rename that to something else and try again. It sounds like you haven't removed all the files/folders and/or you're doing something wrong.

Hi,
Thank you for your response. I have just changed the site.php which was pointing to the DB which was created by the previous quick installation. Now I get:

An unexpected error occurred.
mysql error: [1146: Table 'mydb456.Pages' doesn't exist] in EXECUTE("select Pages.cID, Pages.pkgID, Pages.cPointerID, Pages.cPointerExternalLink, Pages.cIsActive, Pages.cIsSystemPage, Pages.cPointerExternalLinkNewWindow, Pages.cFilename, Collections.cDateAdded, Pages.cDisplayOrder, Collections.cDateModified, cInheritPermissionsFromCID, cInheritPermissionsFrom, cOverrideTemplatePermissions, cPendingAction, cPendingActionUID, cPendingActionTargetCID, cPendingActionDatetime, cCheckedOutUID, cIsTemplate, uID, cPath, Pages.ctID, ctHandle, ctIcon, ptID, cParentID, cChildren, ctName, cCacheFullPageContent, cCacheFullPageContentOverrideLifetime, cCacheFullPageContentLifetimeCustom from Pages inner join Collections on Pages.cID = Collections.cID left join PageTypes on (PageTypes.ctID = Pages.ctID) left join PagePaths on (Pages.cID = PagePaths.cID and PagePaths.ppIsCanonical = 1) where Pages.cID = 1")

Any help will be appreciated!

I think it does not find the tables that the quick installation created in the all DB. The database "mybd456" is empty and ready to use.
