Hi ALL,
I have been running Alfresco Community 3.2r2 fine on my server (CentOS 5.4, MySQL Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.45, JDK6 Update 12). Yesterday I tried to do a fresh re-installation but now I keep on getting the following error:

What could be the cause? All other apps using mysql are all running fine
