wrong values in ispconfig3.sql cause flawed db installation
opensuse 12.3 mariadb 5.5.32
Only the first five tables get installed during the installation. Then the mysql installation aborts, but the ispconfig install continues. The reason for this are two entries which are not allowed to have default values. mysql/mariadb (silently) complains about this.
template_additional text NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
groups TEXT NOT NULL default '',
Erasing the "NOT NULL DEFAULT ''" part solved it for me.
