Continuous Loading - installation of 3.0.1 and 3.0.0

PHP 7.0.14 | MySQL - 5.7.17 | Apache/2.4.16 (Unix)

I tried installing OJS 3.0.1 and 3.0.0 using three methods,

  1. Manually set up on MAC OS X 10.10.5 (Yosemite)
  2. Online server
  3. MAMP on MAC OS X 10.10.5 (Yosemite)

In 2. and 3., online sever and MAMP, I only get a Blank page

in method 1, local host shows installation page and when I submit the installation, page start loading and is always loading. I wonder if anything wrong at MY SQL, in the drop down list mysql appears within square brackets [MY SQL]. Please help

Before submit installation,

After submit,

Hi @Saz,

Try modifying your PHP configuration to direct error messages to a log file rather than the web browser; embedded PHP error messages are interfering with AJAX requests.

For the issue with [ MySQL ] in square brackets, see the note just above that field in your screenshot.
