Error while doing setup
I went to upload (i.e., set-up) version 1.1.5 today.

I uploaded the install.cgi and .dat files successfully. I ran install.cgi successfully also. When I went to go through the Admin set-up and the database information, I correctly put in all the MySQL parameters, however, it keeps giving me the following error message:

Error: Database driver mysql is not installed. Available drivers: ExampleP,Multiplex,Proxy

What does this mean exactly?

This means you need to install the perl DBD::mysql module. It's the perl module that lets perl communicate with MySQL. Send a message to your ISP, or if you have your own unix server you can run:

perl -MCPAN -e 'install DBD::mysql'

or from windows:

ppm install DBD-mysql
