Problems with MySQL tables when trying to use the drupal spam module
I've tried to install the Drupal Spam module on my site to try and curtail the spam I'm reciving. I've followed the instructions in the INSTALL.txt file, but I now get errors pertaining to the module on my site.
The errors are about missing MySQL tables which the module is expecting e.g.
* user warning: Table 'drupal.spam_log' doesn't exist query: INSERT INTO spam_log (hostname, source, id, uid, entry, timestamp) VALUES('192.168.1.19', 'comment', 190, 1, 'spam_comment: deleting comment \"Foo!\"', 1158947649) in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/drupal/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 120.
* user warning: Table 'drupal.spam_tracker' doesn't exist query: DELETE FROM spam_tracker WHERE id = 190 AND source = 'comment' in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/drupal/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 120.
I sadly know nothing about MySQL, and very little about drupal, thus remidying this has me stumped.
Any help would be grand.
