Joomla! 3 installation freezes at creating database table
After long time I try to install Joomla and it is Joomla 3.3.0 and face a problem as like you. All things are ok but its taking too much time during database table creation. And here is the solution
To solve this go to
Your joomla folder\installation\sql\mysql and open Joomla.sql file find the term
and replace ALL with
MyIsam is more supported and compatible with Joomla.
Do also the same with (sample_data.sql) file, if it’s quickstart setup.

I tried with your solution but not getting it .
during installation , after filling details under “Main Configuration” and when click on Next , first of all it is taking long time , finally not loading “Database” section at all. I am new to Joomla
I am not getting what exactly the problem is..?
In the URL section it showing “localhost/Elata/installation/index.php#”
# means its an empty no page to navigate.
So please can you help me out ,, soon
It work correctly. Thanks for nice post
thank you too 😀
A solution that worked for me without change the “ENGINE=InnoDB”
in the php.ini
max_execution_time = 180
or max_execution_time = 300 if not enough
Do you use InnoDB ENGINE? And thanks for alternative 😉
What i know is that i didn’t change anything in joomla files 🙂
