Joomla 3.6 installation stuck at the database creation level at step 2 on Xampp 5.6 on Windows OS
After release of a new Joomla! version, enthusiat Joomla! users install it on their local web server in personal computers, laptops, or even on sub-domain of live server to take a taste of new features of the new release. On Windows 7, 8, and 10 operating system, a large number of developers and users use their popular website development server package, like Xampp, Wamp (Apache web-server based). This article will discuss on a particular problem where Joomla 3.6 fresh installation was stuck on level 2 i.e. database creation level and its solution on Xampp 5.6 or 7. On Joomla! and Apache forum, many developers reported about this problem.
This problem is caused due to timeout of "execution time" setting of PHP in php.ini.
The SOLUTION TO this timeout problem is to increase the "execution time" setting in php.ini file.
Add or change (if max_execution_time already exists) in php.ini from:
max_execution_time = 30
max_execution_time = 300
Most of the hosting server automatically takes the new setting in effect. If you are running VPS and does not configured to take php settings so, restart your Apache web server.
Delete the tables from PhpMyAdmin that would be created from Joomla! failed installation attempt and try again to install your favorite Joomla! Content Management System.
