    I am having problems installing the Xoops module with my Xoops site.

    I get this error: ""XOOPS Board Db and Prefix - incorrect value. Error: Table xxxxxxxxxx doesn't exist"


    xxxxxxxxxx = equals the name that I used.


    I am running Cpanel, and my DB name is the first 8 charactors of my user name for my hosting account, with an _dbname

    looks like this: username_dbname

    So to install it, it needs the dbname, and the table's prefix, and it should look like this: username_dbname.dbname_ (according to their example in the module)

    I have tried every variation of that, and I haven't been able to make it work.

    Im waiting for support to help me out with it now.

    Any ideas in the meantime?

    If this helps, I used the MySQL Account Maintenance module in Cpanel to check the name of my DB.

    Here is what I found (x's in place of acutal name)

    DB: xxxxxxx_xxxxx
    Username: xxxxxxx_xxxxx

    I checked phpMyAdmin to see what the tables prefix.

    The prefix is: xxxxx_


    So the Xoops setup, where the module asks: XOOPS Board Db and Prefix

    the example is: nuke.nuke_

    So my entry should look like: xxxxxxx_xxxxx.xxxxx_

    ??????

    I think that the redundant underscore is what is throwing it off. But that is how my database name looks.

    I tried it without the proceeding xxxxxxxx_ and just tried xxxxx.xxxxx_

    But it didn't like that either.

    So I tried just: xxxxx_

    Didn't like that.

    So I tried xxxxx

    It didn't like that.

    I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
