Hi, I have searched high and low in the forums for this issue, while there are a few posts about it there are no solutions I can find.

I did fresh install, after several php.ini configuration changes and a server restart it passed all tests and thought was good to go, but it starts installing and just hangs at the building database stage.

If you refresh the page it says "Note: SilverStripe is already installed here." but when you view the site there is 500 error.
The database was never built.

sql tests revealed connection is fine, memory is double the recommended 64M,
I have tried dev mode, everything on the server looks fine.. pulling my hair out 3 hours later and no luck with install.

Anyone else have this problem?
