[SOLVED] Force install

Post by csat »

Ok on installing a mod using automod it says it is all successful apart from the following 2 error messages:
SQL Queries
Error:Duplicate entry 'require_ip_check' for key 1
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('require_ip_check', '0')
Error:Duplicate column name 'user_dupe_ip'
ALTER TABLE phpbb_users ADD user_dupe_ip varchar(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT ''
I am then given the option to retry or force install. I assume it is giving me these errors because i have previously installed and then uninstalled the mod before so the information is already in the relevant tables in my sql database. What is the best thing do do in this situation? Force install? What are the implications of using force install?

go for it. what is the worst that can happen?
as long as you backed up the database and the files before you started, then you can't break it so bad that it would take more than a few minutes to restore it.

Hey, good job! I like people that aren't afraid to "push the buttons" just to see what happens.
