I'm trying to install OC 6.0 on my server. There was no prior OC
installation. Using advanced installation, I enter admin name/password
and my MySQL credentials. owncloud returns with the above error message:
Mysql user 'oc_admin'@'localhost' already exists. remove this user of
MySQL. Hitting "finish installation" generates a config.php with sqlite
as data store.
I then removed the oc_admin user with phpMyAdmin from MySQL user table,
removed date/admin directory, config.php and restarted the installation.
The result is the same. It makes no difference if I create the owncloud
database before or let the installation script take care of it.
