Stuck In Installation

try install nextcloud on xampp and get the below error after entering MySQL details on the installtion page.

An exception occurred while executing 'SELECT uid, displaynameFROMoc_usersWHEREuid_lower = ?' with params ["admin"]: SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'nextcloud.oc_users' doesn't exist

table oc_migrations created on the database but just this table… and no other tables created in the database.
I user a username and password with full privilege and create a database named nextcloud and use it as DB.

Using XAMPP On Windows 10
PHP 7.2.1
Apache 2

Similar if not identical issue here as well. On Windows Server. Not using IIS.

New setup using Xampp 7.4
PHP 7.4.13
MySQL MariaDB 10.4.17
Apache 2.4.6


every attempt it creates a table called oc_migrations and nothing more, despite being a local mysql databas on port 3306 and root access with FULL privileges.
