[Mediawiki-l] Problem with image upload

I've just installed MediaWiki in Windows 2003 with MySQL 4.1.22, PHP
5.2.5 and MediaWiki 1.11.0.

I have enabled upload of images, but when I select an image for upload I
get the following internal error:

A database error has occurred
_minor_mime,img_metadata,img_timestamp,img_sha1 FROM `image` WHERE
img_name = 'Campaignlogo.jpg' LIMIT 1 
Function: LocalFile::loadFromDB
Error: 1054 Unknown column 'img_sha1' in 'field list' (localhost)

Am I using the wrong version of MySQL or PHP?

When I put the image right in the /images folder, which has all the
correct permissions set, the page fails to load altogether with a 500
Internal Server Error.  However the $wgLogo image works perfectly well.
