    Default Re: Installer stalls at creating Database

    Thanks I found that helpful.

    I have successfully loaded v1.5.3 and the cart works fine.

    I have loaded again v1.5.5a using a new database the problem at the stage of creating a database still stalls at 86%.

    Anyone, has experienced this before?

    Anyone with a fresh idea please?

    I encountered that once way back in the early days of developing the new installer. IIRC it was caused by a permissions issue with writing the progress-meter file, which seemed odd. I was certain we'd fixed that though. So your case might be caused by something different.
    Another thing which I'm sure was fixed was that the progress-bar is a modal which originally could be "canceled" by clicking anywhere else on the page to close the modal ... and of course then the installation would halt. But that was fixed, and besides, if it was still happening then you wouldn't be telling us a percentage because it would have disappeared from the screen.

    Another former observation is that the percentage bar doesn't always get to 100% because it's being read from disk and sometimes things complete before it can read that final 100 value, and so it jumps to the next screen without showing 100%. But that's not quite what you're experiencing either.

    Usually when zc_install encounters a "fatal" problem, it will log into the /logs/ folder with a different kind of filename: zcInstall-DEBUG-xxxxx.log (note the word DEBUG), in which you'll find the details of a PHP or MySQL error that's caused problems.
    I'm puzzled by yours isn't triggering the debug file if it's failing to complete normally.

    I realize this post doesn't give a concrete solution to your situation, but perhaps helps inform you more.

    Another thing to check, which will give some indication of how far the install progress got, is to check the contents of the
    products table (assuming you asked for demo data to be installed)
    Are there any entries there?

    Lol. You are certainly welcome to try out the v160 installation. Go to github.com/zencart and click the Clone Or Download button, and grab the zip.
    It's nowhere ready for release, but it'd be interesting to know whether your system has the same problems with the newer version.

    What other servers have you tried it on?

    This wasn't what I asked :)

    What I asked is whether demo data had been loaded.

    e.g whether products table had been populated

    I'll try that v160 version

    Only one server at the moment to try it on.

    I'am thinking it is my php which is 5.4.45 on the server could this be the problem?

    I have now php version 5.6.20 on my server.

    No luck though as both v160 and v155a still stall on create a Database.

    I have the option to move to a cloud server to run php7.0 Do you think this is worth trying?

    Or before I move do you have anything else I can try?
