Joomla 3.1.1. hangs while creating database tables

Postby mirek » Thu May 09, 2013 12:58 pm

Hi,
I'm installing locally (pendrive 8 GB, XAMPP) and everything was working good with installation (steps 1-3) and now I can't see any progress while Joomla is creating a database tables. It shows progress bar but for more than an hour no changes.
What I need to check/fix?
Thanks.

Ya I am having the same problem. I am new to Joomla and just downloaded it today along with WAMP. the progression bar on the installation page seems to be frozen. It is on creating database tables. Underneath that is Creating configuration File. I am installing Joomla 3.1. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Check permissions to the database.

I followed a step by step guide from lynda.com for installing joomla. The only difference was they were installing joomla 3.0. I have done quite a few searches on the internet and still no solution.

Okay i figured out what was going wrong. Version 5.6.12 of MySQL seemed to be causing it because when i downloaded an older version of this Joomla installed fine. Anyone else experience anything like this? I am assuming there is some problem between Joomla 3.1 and MySQL 5.6.12.

I have the same issue with Joomla 3.1 and MySQL 5.6.12. Still looking for solution.

I tried this and that worked: viewtopic.php?f=707&t=789551
configured some lines php.ini
- extension=php_mysql(i).dll to full qualified path, extension=D:\php\ext\php_mysql(i).dll
- max_execution_time = 30 to 180
- install zlib1.dll to D:\php\ext\ and add a line extension=D:\php\ext\zlib1.dll

I am using the Wamp server and it installs PHP 5.4.16 and MySQL 5.6.12. I installed the latest 3.x of Joomla and it did hang. I found this post and followed the instructions and it did work. I also have Windows 7

As an alternative you might want to properly configure your webserver. Would start with max_execution_time=300 in php.ini with a restart of the webserver.
Issue with migrating? Include logs/joomla_update.php in your report!
Blank screen? Verify pagesource for HTML code (javascript error)
Installation failing on populating database? Install with set_time_limit(0)
Document your customizations!
