Tao git installation of latest release

Has anyone who installed TAO through git installation (possibly latest release) willing to share their notes on installation procedures?

All help and assistance extended is greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Unfortunately this uses the released zip file instead of GitHub, but I'm able to complete the web-based install, log in, and use all of the admin interface. Unfortunately, I'm hitting this problem when trying to take a test:
