    Running into the exact same issue. Every time I try to do the 5 minute install, setting up database goes fine, but when I get to the login info page it gets held up.

    When I check out the database, it seems no users have been created at all. Have tried this multiple times with different sites, logins, db etc.

    I’ve successfully followed the instructions on SkillCrush before ( https://skillcrush.com/2015/04/14/install-wordpress-mac/) with no problems to setup a local MAMP db and WP site.

    Suspecting there’s some compatibility issue with the new version of WordPress. Is there something in the instructions that’s no longer valid? Ideally would like to get back to a smooth 5 minute local install.

    If not, what to do to troubleshoot? Tried inserting new users through phpAdmin to no avail. (http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-add-an-admin-user-to-the-wordpress-database-via-mysql/). Wondering if other things are corrupted as well.
