Okay well I got SMF to install fine. That part worked great finally, then what I tried to do was go into the Dreamhost Sql control panel and import the Backup from the forum. I then get this error:
ID_FEEDITEM mediumint( 8 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
ID_FEED mediumint( 8 ) NOT NULL default '',
feedhash tinytext NOT NULL default '',
feedtime int( 10 ) unsigned NOT NULL default 0,
PRIMARY KEY ( ID_FEEDITEM )
) TYPE = MYISAM ;
1067 - Invalid default value for 'ID_FEED'
