You have an error in your SQL syntax; Neeed Help

  • Posted December 4, 2013

When installing wordpress I get this error when adding a semi colon at the end CREATE DATABASE WP1;

ERROR 1064 (42000): 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 ':

Is there any faster or less complicated way to install WP. I am used to cpanel 1-click install
