I've tried this installation on a couple of machines and it's the same story. Full error reads:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\www\silverstripe\sapphire\dev\Debug.php on line 671

Any ideas will be appreciated and gladly tried out. I only just started using Silverstripe on Monday.

I'm using - Apache 2.2.17 on windows [edited post - for easy reading].

Thanks in advance for your help.

Could you describe a bit more about the server software you're using?

I thought that question might be on it's way. I'm kicking myself for not mentioning it.

Apache 2.2.17 on windows.

All relevant modules enabled. Hope that answers your question Sean.

Try adding this to the .htaccess file in the location where you installed SilverStripe:

php_value max_execution_time 120

You may also want to change the server name to "" instead of "localhost" if that's how you've set the database connection.
For whatever reason, Windows is slower to resolve localhost for MySQL, don't ask me why, it affects PHP, MySQL and Windows in general.

If you've already installed SilverStripe, simply change the mysite/_config.php "server" value in the $databaseConfig array to "" if it's set to localhost.

Otherwise, specify "" in the "Database server:" field on the SilverStripe installation screen to start from scratch.

Hope this helps!

That's taken care of business Sean. Thanks very much, whereabouts are you? I'll buy you a bear some time.

Seriously, really appreciate your help.

I'm in New Zealand. If you're on this side of the world anytime soon, you can certainly buy me a beer. :-)

It seems I've already committed to buying you a 'bear'!? Are they native to New Zealand? A beer would be far easier. Thanks again.
