Installation stalling on Synology NAS

Postby realnewbie » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:41 pm

Hi,
I'm trying to install on my Synology 418play. I installed the package in the Package Center along with Apache 2.2 and MariaDB 10 (PHP 5.6 and 7.0 already installed).
I then run Joomla and it opens in a my W10 client pc as expected, I'm using Chrome.
I get through all of the installation steps (including the removal of the txt file in the installation directory) and proceed to install with the default English Sample Data. The installation page then shows some greyed out text but never completes.
I have seen that changing the default PHP parameters for max_execution_time and memory_limit can solve the problem so I have changed them (for both versions of PHP) via the Web Station app on the NAS but I don't know if that affects the Joomla install?
Still no success.
The Joomla version is 3.8.4-0165, the NAS is working well and runs the latest version of DSM (6.2-23739).
Any suggestions would be very welcome,
Thanks.

I tried using Edge rather than Chrome but same result Image
I was worried after reading the installation requirements that MySQL was not supported after version 5, so I checked my MariaDB with phpMyAdmin and the database has been created so that doesn't appear to be the issue.
Seems to be stuck on "Creating configuration File" or perhaps on the next step?

Woot! It has finished! Free at last! Free at last!

It appears to have liked Edge after all - I'm glad something does...

Now I can spend the next x number of months trying to learn Joomla.
