I have been trying to set up a local server for the odk by installing the ODK Aggregate v1.3.0 windows-installer.
I have tomcat v6 and mysql already installed in my comp.
I have been following these steps http://code.google.com/p/crossriver-openhds/wiki/OpenDataKitInstallation
unfortunately, when i get to the last step and try to implement the steps below, I get two errors in the command window which I suspect are making me not be able to run the odk aggregate server
Error 1007 ; can't create a database 'odk-prod'; database already exists
Error 1397 ; Operation CREATE USER failed for 'odk_user' @ 'local host'
I expect to have the above statement to be as highlighted in yellow below
what could be the problem?
I would wish to know whether there is an alternative for converting the xml forms with data into csv format on my personal comp.
my comp is running on windows 7
To complete the installation, you need to:
- Execute the mysql (mysql.exe) commandline client using the root account and password (the password you chose during the installation of the database), and supply the
To open the mysql commandline client, open a cmd window (Windows), terminal window (MacOS) or
term window (Linux) and 'cd' to the directory containing the mysql client (mysql.exe on Windows).
Then, please type:
mysql --user root --password
And enter the MySQL server root password. You will then be within the mysql commandline client. You should see a 'mysql>' prompt. Type:
source C:/Users/Karuru/ODK Aggregate/ODK Aggregate/ODK Aggregate/create_db_and_user.sql exit
Here is what this looks like on Windows, with what you must type in red:
