    Installation hanging [SOLVED] Link to this post

    Hi everyone,

    I've recently upgraded my laptop to windows 7, after setting up xampp I've tried to start a new SS project but I'm hitting a wall here.

    After Silverstripe has checked the system requirements, I am getting this:


    Installing SilverStripe...

    I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

    If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

    * Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
    * Creating G:\Program files\xampp\htdocs\wwwroot\ARH DB\mysite/_config.php
    * Creating '.htaccess' file...
    * Creating G:\Program files\xampp\htdocs\wwwroot\ARH DB\.htaccess
    * Building database schema...
    * Checking that friendly URLs work...
    * Testing...


    There it is just hanging. In the browser the title is reading 'PHP 5 is required'.

    Anyone got any ideas? My PHP, Apache and MySql is all singing and dancing, I can't understand why SS won't install any further. Permissions all seem to look ok.


    ******************************* !!! SOLVED !!! *****************************

    I had mistakenly had a space in the folder name of my site which I have now removed and everything works fine now.
