K2 database error on install

Post by Trophonius » Mon May 13, 2019 5:47 am

Dear people,

I am getting an error on trying to install K2 after resetting site to a backed up version.

Error received is: Table 'trophoni_topdata.#__k2_items' doesn't exist

I did find an answer to a similar problem which suggested running the following script to create the table in myphpadmin:

`status` int(11) NOT NULL,
`response` text NOT NULL,
`timestamp` datetime NOT NULL

I changed the table identifier to #_k2_items and successfully created it but the columns are not correct.

Can somebody help me with the table structure required please?

Or is there an easier fix available- not sure why when no K2 tables exist in database the installer doesn't just create them.
