Joomla 3.x installation problem

Post by adnanamir » Thu May 07, 2015 3:54 pm

I am trying to install Joomla! 3.x on my system but the installation freezes half way through.

It stops short of finishing the installation during the "creating database tables" task: it just stays on this bit seemingly forever.


1) This problem occurring most usually at Joomla 3.x. To solve this go to wamp\www\Your joomla folder\installation\sql\mysql and open Joomla.sql file find the term


and replace ALL with


MyIsam is more supported and compatible with Joomla.


The problem is that PHP has timed out. By default WAMP comes with the php variable max_execution_time = 30

Look at your php error log and it should make this error fairly obvious.

So edit your php.ini file, using the wampmanager menu system

wampmanager -> PHP -> php.ini

Find the parameter

max_execution_time = 30

And change it to

max_execution_time = 200

Once the install has completed go back and change it back to a value no more than 60.
