How do I create the database tables?
I am trying to install Links SQL 2 and I am having some problems creating the database tables. I have created a new database using mysqladmin, and the database folder is now completely empty. When I go through the install process, everything seems to run fine, but no tables are ever created. When I run setup, the following error occurs:

"Error: Could not connect to database. Reason: Access denied for user: 'redirect123@localhost' (Using password: YES)"

In the 2.0 readme file, there isn't even any mention of the database or the tables, but in the 1.13 documentation, it says they are supposed to be created for you.

Is there an easy way for me to create the tables myself, or is there something else that is causing the problem? i.e., is this actually a problem with user permissions or something? If so, what command should I use to make sure that the right permissions are granted so I will be able to complete the setup process? Is anyone here familiar with what might be causing this error message?

Thank you,

Rob Bartlett
