Ticket #1148 (open bug)

Fails to work with MySQL 8+ because of "groups" becoming reserved word

In newer MySQL versions "groups" is a reserved word, resulting in a lot of SQL errors when trying to use fluxbb.

The groups table should either be renamed, or you should add backticks (`groups`) to all queries.

Use a prefix for table names without fail.

If you already have data in the database, then manually rename the tables and then write the prefix to the config.php file.
