Joomla Extension - Issue Tracker Installation Error


The error might be related to the version of mysql as well as your version of php.  

I had a different type of mysql issue on a joomla install from an old version of joomla to a newer version -- and the Mysql section of Experts exchange pinpointed the problem based on the version of mysql. Therefore i cannot install an extension Issue Tracker on my Joomla System, why is this the case & how can i fix it?? My php & system info is as below:

Are you upgrading the joomla version from older one to new one ? and have installed any extension within your old version of joomla setup.

Yes, i have already upgraded my old Joomla 3.03 to the new one 3.1.5

Now i want to install an extension which was already on my old Joomla however i uninstalled it so that i can install the newer version of the extension that is compatible with the Joomla i now have. With that said - i have tried numerous times to install the new extension on the new Joomla but i receive error messages - namely:

"SQL=ALTER TABLE `hq74m_it_issues` ADD `access` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' AFTER resolution_summary;"

What does this mean & how can i fix it?
