I've uploaded the silverstripe script and created the database, all settings in the install.php page are green and fine (minus one warning about 'Check that the php.ini setting allow_call_time_pass_reference is on' - which I don't believe would halt it).

When I continue with the install, the following appears:

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 'assets' folder...
Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
Creating '.htaccess' file...
Existing .htaccess found, merging in SilverStripe rewrite rules
Building database schema...

I've waited a couple of minutes and the page does not reload or continue - and checking the database - nothing has been created.

I'm running SilverStripe on a Linux server with Apache/PHP.

Could someone please advise on a fix?
