Your installation of Savvy CM includes a /install/ folder with some scripts to help you test your install. Run the diagnostic utility in your browser to check your configuration.
Example address: http://yourdomainname.com/install/
Run the diagnostic utility to confirm your installation is properly configured.
Once the diagnostic has run without error you should go back to the install page and click on "create/upgrade database". This will connect to your empty database and create all table structures, indexes, etc.
