When attempting to install CiviCRM on my local dev platform described above, I am following the instructions as detailed at https://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/WordPress+Installation+Guide+for+CiviCRM+4.5
Everything is fine until I click the "Check Requirements and Install CiviCRM" button - a spinner briefly appears next to it before the frame on the admin page goes blank (menu and toolbar remain) and the entire page appears to be attempting to refresh. Then after a few minutes of loading I am left with a URL ending
wp-admin/?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm&reset=1 - and a white screen.
If I navigate back to my admin console and attempt to go into the CiviCRM plugin I get the following error message:
Fatal error: Uncaught CRM_Core_Exception: [0: Found installation canary. This suggests that something went wrong with tracking installation process. Please post to forum or JIRA. thrown in (MyWordpressHomeFolder)\wp-content\plugins\civicrm\civicrm\Civi\Core\InstallationCanary.php on line 53
I have tried manually deleting the civicrm_install_canary table but that does not resolve the issue...
