Having started work with SS on one site last week and being very happy with the solution I thought I'd move another one to it this morning. I completed the install successfully but then after a series of problems (caused by an error on my part) I decided to deinstall, drop the database and start again. Simple I thought but now the install is freezing at
Building database schema...
I have read through the other entries with this problem but none seem to apply. Could anything be hanging around from the original install that might be causing this problem?
No the install doesn't appear to complete. There are no database tables installed and I get a 404 error in IE and a blank screen in Firefox when I try to access the admin even after flushing the database
When I do the instal I see
If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation
# Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
# Creating /var/www/html/silverstripe/mysite/_config.php
# Creating '.htaccess' file...
# Creating /var/www/html/silverstripe/.htaccess
# Building database schema...
and then it just hangs.
I have tried manually placing the .htaccess file ... a suggestion from an earlier TAR.
I have tried uninstalling everything again and starting from scratch but it doesn't help. I notice I can't delete the tews directory though it is empty. I am not sure what this does so it may not be relevant.
I can't help wonderng if the problem is with the fact I dropped the database.
