If you are encountering an error at 45% during the installation of PrestaShop, specifically when configuring the shop information, it is likely due to a misconfiguration of your server or database settings. Here are a few steps you can take to try to resolve the issue:
- Check your server settings: Make sure that your server meets the minimum requirements for running PrestaShop, which can be found on the official PrestaShop documentation. You may also want to check your server logs for any errors that could be causing the installation to fail.
- Check your database settings: Ensure that you have created a database for PrestaShop to use, and that you have entered the correct database information during the installation process. You may also want to check that your database user has the appropriate permissions.
- Increase your PHP memory limit: It is possible that your PHP memory limit is too low to handle the installation process. You can try increasing it by adding the following line to your PHP.ini file:
memory_limit = 256M
- Try a fresh installation: If none of the above steps work, you may want to try a fresh installation of PrestaShop. Make sure to delete any existing files and databases before starting the installation process again.
If the issue persists, you may want to reach out to the PrestaShop community forums or support team for further assistance.
