Hello all,

I'm trying to install SS for the first time: localhost, existing apache server. The install appears to be going okay but stops at "Building database schema..."

.htaccess looks okay (see below). A new MySQL database has not been created. I get nothing but blank pages.

Thanks for any help,
rim
