Creating a Web using BugsContrib

Hey guys its me again. So I am trying to use the BugsContrib and create a web with its default template. One of the errors I got while creating the web using the default template was this:


Could not create the new web BugTracker?

I am not entirely sure what to make of it. It creates a web but its all bugged out.

I looked up the mysql error line...and found that mines was disabled. I wonder if a sudden power loss to the server turned off some service.

By not enabling the TagsPlugin the error seemed to have disappeared.

TagsPlugin uses a SQL database. If you enable that plugin, the database connection needs to be configured in bin/configure under the extensions tab.
