Hi
Is this a first time install or did you have an earlier version of jDownloads?

Just about to do the previous version the upgrade.... will let you know how I go.

BTW: it was a fresh install of Joomla and then the lastest JDownloads.... did not modify ANYTHING before the install....



All seems to install fine and the upgrade was successful.   

Thanks for your help !

Chris.

Hi Chris,
thanks for the update.We know in the maintime what produced this problem. It has to do with the DB changes from utf8 to utf8mb4 and will be fixed in the next days with the next version.
