after entering the correct data into the 3 forms of the installer The Joomla-installer returns:
Table 'jeddb.jed2_usergroups' doesn't exist SQL=INSERT INTO `jed2_usergroups` (`id`, `parent_id`, `lft`, `rgt`, `title`) VALUES (1, 0, 1, 18, 'Public'), (2, 1, 8, 15, 'Registered'), (3, 2, 9, 14, 'Author'), (4, 3, 10, 13, 'Editor'), (5, 4, 11, 12, 'Publisher'), (6, 1, 4, 7, 'Manager'), (7, 6, 5, 6, 'Administrator'), (8, 1, 16, 17, 'Super Users'), (9, 1, 2, 3, 'Guest')

How can I fix this ?

Hello HenkVanDerGrond,

Thank you for your question. One of the steps when installing Joomla manually is to enter the database information. As per this error, the table jeddb.jed2_usergroups does not exist.

I recommend checking your database information to make sure it is correct. If your host has Softaculous, it can be installed with just a click or two, which really simplifies the process.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

problem solved. It was about an sql-statement which could be improved. Thanks for your time
