i need to try out Magento on my server before buying the enterprise license.

I used the magento-check.php and everything was ok

i tried the downloader .. didn’t work ... it started out ok but then just hung without completing or giving an error

so i uploaded the latest release via ftp and followed the install instructions here:

i input my database connection detail in the wizard and hit ok and get:

Error in file"xxx/magento/app/code/core/Mage/SalesRule/sql/salesrule_setup/upgrade-" SQLSTATE[42000]Syntax error or access violation1067 Invalid default value for 'period'

#0 xxx/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Resource/Setup.php(645): Mage::exception('Mage_Core', 'Error in file: ...')
#1 xxx/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Resource/Setup.php(437): Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Setup->_modifyResourceDb('upgrade', '', '')
#2 xxx/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Resource/Setup.php(320): Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Setup->_upgradeResourceDb('', '')
#3 xxx/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Resource/Setup.php(235): Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Setup->applyUpdates()
#4 xxx/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/App.php(417): Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Setup::applyAllUpdates()
#5 xxx/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/App.php(343): Mage_Core_Model_App->_initModules()
#6 xxx/magento/app/Mage.php(683): Mage_Core_Model_App->run(Array)
#7 xxx/magento/index.php(87): Mage::run('', 'store')
#8 {main}

uploading via ftp takes a lot of time so i’d really like to know how to get this up and running

thx for any help with this ...
