still fighting with this...
I think I shouldn't be using the same user in both the threads and the ppclassifieds, but this doesn't seem to be solving all my problems.
I get a little farther, but am now turning up this error:
MySQL error reported!
Query: SELECT userid,username,email,password,usergroupid,offset FROM pp_users WHERE userid='-1'
Result: Table 'teambuic_forum.pp_users' doesn't exist
Database handle: Resource id #8
by changing the prefix during installation from pp_ to w3t_ I can change the error to something that more resembles what is in my database. Would "users" be case sensitive? In my threads installation, the file name is "w3t_Users" . The w3t_ prefix must be a default for the threads. Should prefixes be avoided when setting up databases?
