ERROR 1366 When Importing database.sql into MySQL.

Hi all, I attempted to download the project files and import the database.sql into my local MySQL server and had an issue that I think all of you will have too if you try the same thing.

Here is the error message: ERROR 1366 (HY000) at line 358: Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'people_id' at row 1

And here is line 358 in database.sql: INSERT INTO Media_People VALUES (26,'','star');

Notice that the second value is '', and it should be an integer, specifically, 163, the next people_id in the series.

Replace line 358 with this: INSERT INTO Media_People VALUES (26,163,'star');

And you should be good to go!

Note If you need to delete the partially formed database from MySQL so that you can redo the import with the correct database.sql file, you'll need to use this command (note the use of backticks () arounddatabase`, those aren't single quotes!).
