On updating Tiki 5.2 and earlier to 6 errors occur during installation.
The problem is discussed over here
This does not happen upgrading from a clean install of 5.3 to 6.0. But it happens when upgrading from 5.0 to 6.0. The most problematic script appears to be 20100927_better_column_fix_tiki. The first query (getOne() on information_schema) seems to be the sticky unbuffered query sometimes, since the following, second query fails. I tried but couldn't find how to confirm what query is stuck. It's odd that this problem only happens in the installer. getOne() just like query() use fetchAll() so we shouldn't see this problem. Setting MYSQL_ATTR_USE_BUFFERED_QUERY doesn't seem to help. After some 10 hours of debugging I'm under the impression this is a PDO bug. This looks like http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=44081 If anyone wants to try fixing, I recommend speaking to me first. The PDO documentation is very poor, making this really difficult.
20100927_better_column_fix_tiki was introduced in 5.3.
I found upgrades would work with PDO in certain environments. I had the bug on PHP 5.2.13 but upgrading to 5.3.3 fixed. PHP 5.3 can use mysqlnd, which I suspect doesn't have this problem. The upgrade worked for me on vanilla PHP 5.3.3 or PHP 5.3.3 from EasyPHP, both with mysqlnd. I have no clue why this problem seems to only affect Windows, but I saw reports of similar problems on Debian etch, so it may not be completely Windows-specific. Anyone who experiences this problem, please report your PHP version, and if you use PHP 5.3, indicate whether you use libmysql or mysqlnd.
If you add the following line
$api_tiki = 'adodb';
to your db/local.php file, the installation of tiki 6 works for me then.

Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
