When starting Cascade CMS for the first time (or after importing a new MySQL database), administrators may see an error message in the log file similar to the following:
ERROR [StartupTasks] : *** Startup task: DatabaseIndexAndKeyManager
failed to execute successfully: java.sql.SQLException: Can't create table
This means that the collation for the tables is incorrect. To fix this problem, take the following steps:
Drop the database.
Create the database and alter it to use the proper collation as mentioned in the MySQL Database Configuration section.
Re-import the database dump from before the last import was attempted.
Start Cascade CMS.
