WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have installed WAMP server on Windows 8 and am trying to install WordPress on it, but while installing it, I could not complete it. It's showing me the error like

http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php?step=2

After that, the process stops.

I referred to the question Wordpress Installation not getting completed, but it could not help me.

How can I fix this problem?

That isn't an error. It is an URL, and it suggests that the problem is here:

case 2:
    if ( ! empty( $wpdb->error ) )
        wp_die( $wpdb->error->get_error_message() );

http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-admin/install.php#L188

That is turn does suggest that you have a database error. Make sure that your database server is running and turn on error reporting. I don't use WAMP, but maybe these will help:

I hope that what solved my problem will help you, in php.ini, I set the max_execution_time configuration to 90 instead of the default value 30.

max_execution_time = 90

That isn't really what I mean. I mean "Please explain the answer". You may well be right but why? Why do you think this will solve the problem and exactly what does this do? What are the dangers? What are the consequences? Provide more details. –  s_ha_dum Apr 10 at 22:59
