Hello, I'm having this error when installing the Cachelite extension:

MySQL Error (1050): Table 'symcachelitereferences' already exists in query: CREATE TABLE sym_cachelite_references ( page varchar(255) NOT NULL default '', sections varchar(255) default NULL, entries varchar(255) default NULL, PRIMARY KEY (page) ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8

Any suggestion?

I installed it about half an hour ago on a 2.5.1 site with no issues, for what it's worth.

I'm no MySQL expert, but it looks to me like you'd already installed the extension, uninstalled it and reinstalled it. It looks like the table wasn't dropped during the uninstall.

What was your workflow?

Hi Nathan, that's exactly as you mention. The extension was causing troubles on the previous version, I knew no other way to deal with it....

You could manually drop the table from the database and try installing it again, that would be my best advise.

Depending on what went wrong it might be worth flagging this on the repo's issue list, as there may be a problem with the uninstall script.
