    Default Installer stalls at creating Database

    I am trying to install the latest version of Zen cart.
    It stalls when creating Database at 82%.
    I am using a remote mysql Database server with database name of
    zencart

    Any ideas or can I use an older version of Zen-cart?

    Are there any zcInstall*.log files present in your /logs folder?

    How much of the database was actually installed?

    You can use your hosting company's phpMyAdmin to see which tables have been installed in the database; what's the last one that was created?

    That's the "right" last table and the "right" number of rows. I'm out of additional options.

    want to bypass this and jump to the next page and need to amend the configure page

    /**
    * This is the complete physical path to your store's files. eg: /var/www/vhost/accountname/public_html/store/
    * Should have a closing / on it.
    */
    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/htdocs/vhost/accountname/public_html/store/');

    where are the stores files? in a normal include configure file?

    They are in whatever directory you uploaded the files to. So, if that's /home/yourname/public_html/ ... then ... that's what DIR_FS_CATALOG will be automatically set to by zc_install

    I can now get to the cart when I use
    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/linnas01/w/webhouses.co.uk/user/htdocs/store/');
    Can't get to the admin though as it says
    Not found
    The requested URL /store/admin/alert_page.php was not found on this server.
    How do I get to the admin now?

    Use the value defined for DIR_FS_CATALOG in /YOUR_ADMIN/includes/configure.php file, too!

    If you post the contents of your /includes/configure.php file (without the database settings) and the contents of your /YOUR_ADMIN/includes/configure.php file, someone might see what needs to be changed.

    When/if you post a file's contents, use the # button in the menu-bar to wrap "code" tags around that code, making it easier to read!
