Something changed after Zero 11.1.3 - slow WordPress install with error

Recommended Posts

I have been meaning to do some testing on this issue since I first noticed it 'way back' and have just now done so.

 

The main reason for wanting to get a resolution to this now is because I am putting together some YouTube tutorials on installing WordPress locally and so want to use Uniform Server, but I am having a difficult time deciding to do so with the current situation. For personal use, this is no problem as after one does get to the log in, all works fine.

 

Issue:

 

- when installing WordPress, the normal sequence of events after the last step of the installation, when the 'Install WordPress' button is clicked, is that almost instantly, the 'Success' page is displayed along with the log in link.

- however, on all versions of Zero tested subsequent to 11.1.3, after the above-noted button is clicked, there is a wait of ~ 40 seconds before a page is displayed with only the WordPress logo and a horizontal rule.

- the only way to get to the log in is to either reload the page and accept the error message or manually delete the URL up to 'localhost/wordpress/wp-admin'

 

Versions tested were:

 

10.1.2

11.0.8

11.1.2

11.1.3

11.1.4

11.1.6

11.1.8

11.3.1

11.4.1

11.5.1

11.5.2

11.6.0

 

 

The only ones that "worked" were:

 

10.1.2

11.0.8

11.1.2

11.1.3

 

The only conclusion that I can come to is that something changed after 11.1.3 that is now making Zero behave in this fashion with WordPress installations.

 

It should be noted that all tests were done using a fresh download of the current WordPress 4.0.1.

 

Additionally, another script, eFront, installed 'as it normally does' on 11.6.0.

 

Any insights will be greatly appreciated :)

 

Cheers!

I have looked at this issue and see no significant delays when installing WordPress 4.0.1 on Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 8.1

Note: When entering database connection details, for "Database Host" do not use localhost, instead use 127.0.0.1 using localhost can take time to resolve.

All the best

Hi Ric,

 

Thanks for taking a look and it would appear that I should have performed more extensive testing :)

 

This 'phenomenon' seems to be confined to my desktop system (Win 7 Home Premium), all browsers.

 

However, on my two laptops (a Lenovo running Win 7 Home Premium and a MacBook Pro running Win 8.1 in Boot Camp) installing WP 4.1 in the latest US 11.6.0 works perfectly with both localhost and 127.0.0.1 :)

 

Hope you have a great holiday season! :)

 

Cheers!

Lyle
