I've tried installing it twice but i get this error message each time:

I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

Hey Pat!

I suppose this is a silly question - but you have already double checked that your database information is correct (1) and (2) your sql user has the correct permissions?

Part one of the set up said the database was ok:

"MySQL Database
These database details look all good! "

what do you mean by this:

"(2) your sql user has the correct permissions?"
