    Hi,

    ERROR 1396  indicates the 'cmon' user exists already on 127.0.0.1 (obviously the install script fails to detect this).

    Can you try and do:

    mysql -uroot -p

    # at the mysql> prompt execute:
    DROP USER 'cmon'@'127.0.0.1';
    DROP USER 'cmon'@'localhost';

    # or:
    DELETE FROM mysql.user WHERE user='cmon';
    FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

    and try the installation script again?

    BR
