Sounds like there is a problem with your MySQL database
-- either it didn't get created correctly by the install script, or the
connection information in web/conf/config.ini is not correct. Take a look at
the [Database] section of config.ini -- if the problem is not obvious at a
glance, you can set the "debug" setting in that section up to 5 to
get more detailed information.
Please let me know if you need more help!
