Thanks for the reply. I reran the script and selected mysql (which I did
originally) it had an error at the end and I had a choice to retry, abort,
retry (skip questions) so I said retry and it asked me the questions again
and I answered as before and the script ended without an error. I went into
Mysql with phpmyadmin and the database was created by when I go to the web
address I now get

   - Config file /etc/request-tracker4/RT_SiteConfig.pm is locked

I checked all of my windows and I don't have it opened anywhere.
I restarted the server just in case but I still get the message.
