I installed phplist using cpanel. Now I am trying to upload a tab limited text document. I am getting this message, "Database error 1064 while doing query You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'data' at line 1" and have no idea what to do.

Hello JamieP,

We need a few details. When does the error occur? I'm not seeing the error being recorded on your server. Is the file on the server (have you uploaded it?). If we can see the file, it would make it easier to see what may be causing the issue. Problems of this nature will tend to be within the file that you're trying to transfer. And it's specifically saying line 1. What's in line 1 of your file? Give us a few more details, or at least upload the file so that we can try to directly help you with the import issue.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
