8.3.2 installation error. Please help.

Permalink
Hey guys,
I have installed multiple version of concrete in the past without any issues.
However this time I'm getting a gateway error followed by an error stating that concrete needs to be installed on an empty database. I can confirm that it is indeed empty and I have the correct permission setup. Common causes suggest it's a cache issue or even a .php versioning issue however again, fine with my other setups.
So, I'm stuck now. I cant get past this error.
Please advise if you can help a brother out.
Thanks,
Bjorn

A long-shot: increase max_execution_time and try again (with nuked database).

Thanks for the quick response. So I upped the timeout from default "30" to "90" and I'm still getting the same error.
I'm going to try command line update next see if that works.
Thanks,
Bjorn

This is a copy of the error message text:

"ERROR 504 - GATEWAY TIMEOUT
Why am I seeing this page?
The server that your request has reached is acting as a gateway or proxy to fulfil the request made by your client.

Web Browser => Web Front-End => Web Back-End

This server (Web Front-End) received an invalid response from an upstream (Web Back-End) server it accessed to fulfil the request.

In most cases this will not mean that the upstream server is down, but rather that the upstream server and the gateway/proxy do not agree on the protocol for exchanging data.

This problem is most commonly caused when there is a problem with IP communications between the Web Front and Back-Ends. Before you attempt to resolve this problem you should clear your browser cache completely.

Our support staff will be happy to assist you in resolving this issue. Please contact our Live Support or reply to any Tickets you may have received from our technicians for further assistance.

Installing via the command line is the quickest/most reliable way I've found - https://documentation.concrete5.org/developers/appendix/cli-commands...
