that's odd - presumably there's something timing out in the install script - most likely due to a missing dependency. Do you have any errors showing in your apache error log?

A normal installation for step one should look like this, including the error.


For some reason the install procedure stops when seeking / testing for soap.
It seems that you don't even get to step2, the database connection.

I'm sorry I don't have a solution but may it puts you on the right track.
