Joomla 3.3.1 Hangs during Installation

Post by numinousmedia » Tue Jun 17, 2014 9:13 pm

I'm attempting to install Joomla 3.3.1 onto a Linux server, and am having trouble. Everything works correctly until the "Creating Database Tables" step. It freezes up here, and will continue attempting to install forever.

I turned on my Firebug console, and saw this error pop up during the "Creating Database Tables" step:

TypeError: a.toUpperCase is not a function

Also, an error container pops up above the loading graphic on the installation page, but it is empty, and contains no information. I've attempted installing Joomla 3.3.1 in another directory on the same server, and received the same result.

Here's my server info:

Linux running Apache 2.2.27
MySQL 5.5.37
PHP 5.3.28
All folders are 755, all files are 644.

I have a few other Joomla 3.3 installations running fine on the same server in different directories.

Any ideas? I could try using a one-click installer provided by the host... but I really don't like using those if I can help it.

before installation, did you create database well?
when install, remember to input correct host name?

Thanks for your response iextensions... the host is correct (localhost), and I just created a new user, added it to the database, and gave it all permissions, and I'm still running into that hang. I checked on the actual database in PHPMyAdmin, and it looks like it's creating all of the table rows correctly, from "Assets" to "Weblinks". I think I'm going to manually create a configuration.php file, and see if the site works... I'll let you know.

So... I manually created the configuration.php file, and the frontend and backend loaded up, but I was unable to log in. It looks like my admin account was never created during the database setup. I'll keep digging away at this...

Success... sort of.

I deleted all of the Joomla 3.3.1 files in the directory on my server.

I was able to download a copy of Joomla 3.3.0. I uploaded the zip to the server, extracted it, and ran the set up. This time, the installation completed successfully. No hang ups.

So there is either something in Joomla 3.3.1 causing installation trouble, or my FTP program is corrupting files that are being uploaded (consistently). I'm not sure which...

Either way... if you run into trouble, I'd suggest installing 3.3.0, and then upgrading from the backend.

I also have the same problem whit joomla 3.3.1,xampp 3.2.1(PHP Version 5.5.11)
Everything works correctly until the "Creating Database Tables" step. It freezes up here, and will continue to install forever.I guess something wrong with MySql DB engine and joomla install script?

I just about never use Xampp, so I don't know if I'd be much of a help to you. You could try what I tried though, and see if your site will install Joomla 3.3.0 instead. You can download it from here: http://joomlacode.org/gf/download/frsre ... ackage.zip

Hi All,

I do not know if this is correct sollution, but it works for me.
I have XAMPP xampp-win32-1.8.3-4-VC11.

I have changed the joomla.sql in the installation sub dir.
I have changed ENGINE=InnoDB to ENGINE=MyIsam

This works for me.

Hi msnoeck,

Can you please explain the solution in detail.
is this the file path you are referring to:
Joomla_3.3.1-Stable-Full_Package\installation\sql\mysql\joomla.sql ?
there are many occurrences of ENGINE=InnoDB at the end of each CREATE TABLE query,shall i replace all these with ENGINE=MyIsam

I have replace all the ENGINE=InnoDB to ENGINE=MyIsam.
in the file Joomla_3.3.1-Stable-Full_Package\installation\sql\mysql\joomla.sql

But it seems to be a problem with the latest XAMPP 1.8.3.
Because I have the same problem with an pre-configured installation file of Rockettheme. (Template Lexicon - Rocketlauncher)

Please use Unicontroller. I had used it because XAMPP and Wamp Server gave me the samle problem when creating the database table when installed joomla to localhost. I think it is do with the MSQLI tables and the MSQL table.

This is a quick method, You can also edit installation\sql\mysql\sample_data.sql if the installation got stuck at "Installing data sample"

This is just an opinion, but I think it is something to consider for those still having issues. Is your host too slow? Are you uploading using wireless?

Very often slow connections cause fragmentation of uploaded files leading to bunch of errors. I have moved my website to another host due this issues.

When re-attempting installation make sure to delete all existing tables. or delete and recreate the database. It may help.

Thanks a lot. This works for xampp 1.8.3 & joomla 3.3.6 combination also. It works! :)
