Quickstart installation problems

Because JoomShaper Quickstart includes Joomla, demo content, additional extensions and their settings it requests good PHP settings. Firstly check all technical requirements. In particular, if during QuickStart installation on localhost you have never-ending installation or it stuck/freezes on creating tables (installation step 4). You need properly configured server or localhost infrastructure. Compare your PHP setting with Technical Requirements.

In most cases you have to change PHP max_execution_time = 180 or 300 suggested

Note: If you don't know how to change PHP settings - please contact with your hosting support. They should help you. Sometimes information how to change PHP values are included on your hosting website Help/FAQ section.

If above steps will not help - please make small customization:

QuickStart Installer customization

  • Open in your text editor the following files:
    installation\sql\mysql\joomla.sql
    and
    installation\sql\mysql\sample_data.sql\
  • Find all instances of ENGINE=InnoDB and change/replace to ENGINE=MyIsam
  • Now return in your installation procedure one step back and try again.
  • Use MySQL in choose field not MySQLi if you still have problems with database step.

------
* Once the install has completed go back and change it back to a value no more than 60.
** MyISAM is more supported and compatible with Joomla! in localhost environment.
