Upgrade from 1.3 B1 to 1.3 Beta 2 hangs, so does fresh install...

when doing either an upgrade or a fresh install of Q2A 1.3b2 it hangs when trying to update or create database tables, i have tried it both ways.

It does not give me an error, just sticks on the same page.

I have tried enabling short tags in my php.ini file but am not sure if they are working correctly.  Last time on beta one this was an error in the facebook plugin php page.  I am wondering if its the same type of php error but instead with a different script?

Please advise

is there a way for me to manually update the DB?  I can use my old db from my 1.3 beta 1 tests, and make the SQL updates...??  With the combo of copying all the new php files?   Or does the update/install make other changes too?

Actually, i tried to run it in a different browser and it worked fine.  I guess i was doing something wrong in google chrome.  Very embarassing... I think i am good.

I saw the problem by checking out your site. You have some kind of redirect rule set up which is redirecting from:


... to ...


This is preventing the install button click from being detected, since the form is submitted at the URL which includes index.php, but this submit requested is being redirected back to the original page URL.
