error in install Concrete5


#1

I tried to install Concrete5 in version 5.7.5.13 and 8.3.2 either manually or through softaculous and I always get the same error.

The error is what is in this :

The following errors were found :
Could not make the query numbered : 173
MySQL Error No : 1071
MySQL Error : Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes

Can someone help me to solve this situation?

Concrete5 is to heavy and it can’t be installed here on InfinityFree.

It’s a known issue: https://infinityfree.net/support/search/?q=MySQL+Error+%3A+Specified+key+was+too+long%3B+max+key+length+is+1000+bytes

Basically, those versions of Concrete5 require the InnoDB database engine, which is not supported on free hosting.
