Problem installing 1.1 RC 1

Well, I cannot get 1.1 to install at all. Did you guys create a stand-alone SQL data file to create a database with? the error is it does not seem to recognize the database.

I tried to install as an upgrade, killed my existing site lol. So I tried by itself and I always get stopped at cannot recognize the database.

I'm pretty sure the install works fine because it's tested each time (I recently introduced the test :)).
Are you using the package from https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/releases/tag/v1.1.0-RC.1 ?
I guess mysql, right?
What error exactly are you getting?
In case, try downloading the package from https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/archive/development.zip as usual unzip and do the install, no need to touch anything.

 :)  This morning I got it to install using your (mentioned files) the same files I was trying yesterday. the problem: I was having was it would not populate the database. I'm used to your type of website but I have used a stand-alone sql database file that is accessed in the ini file in a php.database file where the website is tied to the database. ( P/w, username, and database name).

I'm still learning how to use your site so we will have (user error) lol thank you for your help  ;D    http://realchristchurch.com
