Installation fails, always shows setup page again
I've found two other topics (one of them is http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/18474/vanilla-2-0-18-1-installation-loop) about this issue in here but there were no answers that helped me.
Here's my problem: I try to install Vanilla 126.96.36.199 locally on my Mac (OSX Mavericks, MAMP 2.2, htdocs is inside Applications folder). When I enter all info on the setup page and click continue, the setup page is loaded again with empty input fields again and no indication of progress or error. The DB connection works, as the installer actually creates the DB tables/fields. Also, I can see that it created a new config.php with the details I entered.
But whatever I try, I'm not able to reach the dashboard. It always redirects me to the setup page. Did anyone have the same problem? Any ideas what I could try out?
