I am attempting to install SilverStripe on to my Dreamhost server. The installation runs, I enter everything necessary, it checks database requirements, then I click Install. An new page shows up, shows steps of installation, and right after "Building database schema" I get a SilverStripe logo and the message: The website server has not been able to respond to your request. When I turn on 'dev' mode, I see that it is attempting to access portools.Page, and portools.Table, and such (portools is my database name), but they do not exist. Isn't the installer supposed to create them? Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you in advance!

P.S. I've tried this on the most recent version, and on the trunk version.

I've tried rebuilding the database. In the verbose output, it creates a few tables, then tries to show full fields for table Permission which was never created. Here's the error:

[User Error] Couldn't run query: SHOW FULL FIELDS IN `Permission` Table 'portools.Permission' doesn't exist
GET /db/build?flush=1

What's wrong?
