Setting up the FULL template with Joomla (happens to be Arthur) on localhost.

Install goes fine until (4)Overview Page of installation, and at the bottom of Pre-Installation Check, states to copy and past the configuration.php info when done.

Starts to complete the installation about 1/4 of the way then rolls back to (4)Overview Page.

Database info is correct.  For 'test purposes' installed Joomla, and then the 'Arthur Template Only' and that worked.

New install of xampp on mac is fine, as mentioned other install of Joomla then template works fine - except the 'Template and Joomla combo'.

No database names are crossed to any other.

Suggestions please??

Thanks -

That sounds more like a problem with your localhost. I have just tested a fresh install and it is working with no issues. You can try different php versions on the install, but I doubt that would have much effect. Do you happen to have a live test server online that you can try on? If it works there that would confirm there is something wrong with localhost.

This particular localhost was setup with the XAMPP-VM for Mac.

Switching over to the standard XAMPP for Mac solved the problem.
