    I would suggest you clean up the SQL dump by removing all comments etc so that only the actual queries are there – Lodder Jan 23 '15 at 9:10

    @BagraRajeev - I've removed all the rubbish from the SQL dump in this answer and added your table prefix so you can now copy and paste it into PhpMyAdmin ;) – Lodder Jan 24 '15 at 9:34

    @BagraRajeev - Your are on the Query tab. Go to the SQL tab instead, and paste it in there ;) – Lodder Jan 24 '15 at 13:15

    @z3r0c001 I understand need to have jos_ as my database prefix. Right now, is bq1ry_ my database prefix? (bit.ly/1DRbWGj) If so, do I need to change to jos_? – Splendid Digital Solutions Feb 8 '15 at 10:18

    You need to maintain the same DB prefix throughout site. You cannot change it to any random string. If it is jos_. Then rename the table to jos_k2_categories. – z3r0c001 Feb 9 '15 at 11:40

This situation can happen if K2 was installed in the past and not removed correctly or after a failed install attempt.

Have a look with your FTP client for either of the directories below as K2 checks for them to establish if you already have it installed:

administrator/components/com_k2
components/com_k2

Option 1

Remove these directories and try to install again and you shouldn't have any problems.

Option 2

I have also seen in some cases this error display but the K2 extension continued to partially install in that case you can open the extension manager and searched for K2 then uninstalled the Administrator Component from the list this will uninstall all the other parts of the K2 system.

After that you should have nothing left of K2 and you will be able to do a fresh install with out errors.
