Hi @jonaskohl, do you have your PHP max_execution_time (or some other timeout) set to something low? It looks like the step to setup the database is just taking too long and gets cut off. Or possibly there's some other error causing the database queries like CREATE TABLE to just hang...

The tables (or at least some of them) do get created. I think it's a problem with max_execution_time. I've already contacted my hosting provider because changing the value inside a script or php.ini does not seem to have an effect. So the problem probably lies with my hosting provider, not with Matomo.
