installation issue; TAO Community Edition 3.1 on mac

Thank you for reading my post.

I was trying to install TAO Community Edition 3.1 on mac(version 10.14.1)
Everything was good until the Finalize Installation. As shown in the picture, it says "Deployment In Progress", but nothing happens after that(the second picture)

I am a newbie and cannot attache install.log file.

Please help me~

    Your macOS version doesn't really matter, I would rather be interested in knowing your AMP stack (especially your web server, DBMS and PHP version).

    On top of this, any specific reason not to try the latest TAO 3.2 release candidate?

    Actually at some point and if this persists you will have no choice but to check server or TAO logs.

    Hint: The full path to the installation log is [TAO_ROOT]/tao/install/log/install.log.


  • Thank you for your suggestion! I don't have any specific reason not to try it. I will try to install tao 3.2.

  • I try install tao 3.2. but it same problem

    Please help me

  • Can you check the logs as mentioned by Cyril above and provide the error?



  • Hi everybody. I know it's a bit late :-) but I'm new to TAO and stuck with the same problem. Wondering if anybody found a solution.
    Thanks anyway,

  • Giampaolo,

    Do you have any information from your logs?



  • Hi Amy. Sorry for being ... disappeared (I was lazily hoping in a mail notification for activity in this thread :smile: ) Actually I'm having a look at the product on a Windows VM installation and planning to move on a Centos VM ASAP, so I left the "MacOS way" for the moment. Nonetheless I remember that nothing particularly enlightening came from the logs. I was about to trace the installation activity on server side... but I switched to Windows.
    Anyway, thanks for the answer and ... sorry again!

  • Hi again.
    Being curious, I decided to try again. Well, I was obviously looking at the wrong log or maybe not looking at all :D
    The problem is the same. Find attached the output from ./tao/install/log/install.log.

    Probably unnecessary, but I also activated - before the installation - the general_log on MySQL (find attached the screenshot of the last SQL commands before quitting).

    Wishing everybody a very happy Easter,

  • What versions are you using for TAO, PHP and MySQL?



  • The classical MAMP stack. Last version comes with: MySQL 5.7.25 and PHP 7.3.1

    TAO community edition 3.1 (but the first attempt was done using the 3.2 RC).

    MacBook Pro with Mojave 10.14.4

    Thank you,

  • 3.1 may not be PHP 7.3 compatible, you may want to give a shot. I do know it installs on CentOS 7 as I've got a test machine running it.
