  • Install fails V5.0.4

    When trying to install to a clean directory it stalls on stage 2.
    Have any pointers what I'm doing wrong.

    Does your server meet the software requirements?

    Did you configure the two config files correctly?
    • The one in the main directory usually only needs to be renamed.
    • The one in core/includes needs to be renamed and filled with the correct database info.

      When starting to install it came up with a script to fill these 2 files after I had renamed them. Hope this image helps for requirements.

        Step 2 takes awhile to complete and doesn't have any real feedback while processing. When you look in the database using phpMyAdmin are there any tables listed there?

        Also ask your hosting provider what the wait_timeout in MySQL is set to. It should be at least 120 seconds. The default MySQL ships with is 86400 seconds or 24 hours.

          Yes tables are made 208 of them.
          Wait timeout was 60 and has now been set to 240.
          The time it sits at stage 2 has been over 2 hours but will retry with new settings.

            Also, check your error_logs (if you don't know where they are, ask your host) and see if there is anything in there.

                  Do you have access to the PHP Error logs? Still seems like something is timing out on you.

                    No access to PHP error logs which does not help at all,
