    Installing 7.4 with MySql database on AWS RDS


    I'm currently unable to install Umbraco using MySQL. Installation fails with following message:

    Error during installation
    The database failed to install. ERROR: The database configuration failed with the following message: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'GUID NOT NULL, `text` NVARCHAR(255) NULL, `nodeObjectType` GUID NULL, `createDat' at line 8 Please check log file for additional information (can be found in '/App_Data/Logs/UmbracoTraceLog.txt')

    I am using Umbraco version 7.4.1 from Nuget. My database is an AWS RDS instance of MySql MySQL 5.6.27 with the "lowercasetable_names" parameter set to 1.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Yup, this issue will be fixed in 7.4.2 :

    You could try a nightly in the mean time or use SQL Server instead.

    Hi Sebastiaan,

    I had the same issue as Dan, so I tried your most recent nightly build. I got this error, instead:

    Can you recommend a version of Umbraco that actually has a working MySQL install process?
