Error in SQL Syntax
« on: June 29, 2014, 03:37:21 AM »
Hi, I'm trying to install RadioDJ, I've followed the getting started tutorial and have gotten stuck configuring the database. I've install MySQL and when I try and run the Database Setup Utility and install my database I get this error:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Radio;CREATE DATABSE IF NOT EXISTS Gnome Radio' at line 1 (DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS Gnome Radio; CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS Gnome Radio;)

I've tried googling and have seen people with a similar error using other applications but could not find anything that actually helped me solve this issue.

Can anybody help? Thanks.

You cannot put spaces in database name.

Please don't PM me for support requests. Use the forums instead.
