What step is the installer on when it hangs? Are there any error messages in your PHP error log or slow queries log?

IT hangs at the advanced settings part, well when i click the "next" button, so it hangs when adding tables. Ill have to check the php log, 1 second.

EDIT: No errors in the PHP log.

As I write this, I'm hanging after clicking Next on the Advanced Settings page. I hung a few minutes ago on my first install attempt and eventually I got a FF dialog asking me if I wanted to download a file called index.php. I cancelled it, went in via phpmyadmin and found the tables were all there, so deleted the db and tryng again now....

Whoops, now it's crashed with

Just for fun, I ran the conversion process against the new db, because I know most if not all of the files are there anyway, and this hung too, then again FF asked me what I want to do with a file called index.php. I clicked open and ended up with an empty file in Dreamweaver ...

This installer is not 100% yet, people.

Please don't make claims without backing them up. Your error is related to the max execution time seting for PHP. You can ask GoDaddy to raise it, or, alternatively, I believe GoDaddy will allow you to create a php.ini file to raise it yourself. You're also going to have to drop the tables the installer already created.

On what basis do you conclude that this is a max exec time error? I'd only expect this error during Conversion, not during install.
