Description Rob 2008-12-22 16:13:10 UTC
Trying to get Mediawiki up and running - and can't progress beyond this.  Checkede mySQL installation, which is working fine.  

The process stalls at:

Please include all of the lines below when reporting installation problems.

PHP 5.2.6 installed 
Found database drivers for: MySQL 
PHP server API is isapi; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title) 
Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support. 
Session save path (C:\PHP\Sessions) appears to be valid.
PHP's memory_limit is 128M. 
Couldn't find Turck MMCache, eAccelerator, APC or XCache; cannot use these for object caching.
GNU diff3 not found.
Found GD graphics library built-in, image thumbnailing will be enabled if you enable uploads. 
Installation directory: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Mediawiki11 
Script URI path: /mediawiki11 
Installing MediaWiki with php file extensions 
Environment checked. You can install MediaWiki. 
Warning: $wgSecretKey key is insecure, generated with mt_rand(). Consider changing it manually. 
Generating configuration file...

Database type: MySQL 
Loading class: DatabaseMysql
Attempting to connect to database server as root...

The install locks ehre, and does not progress.

Reminder to poke this with new-installer. I have a feeling it's no longer an issue.
Comment 2 Chad H. 2010-09-09 21:59:22 UTC
Not really enough information to go on here, haven't encountered this while working on the new installer.

Closing WFM. Feel free to reopen if you can provide additional information or otherwise replicate this on a recent version of MediaWiki.
