    Every time I try to install WP, it freezes halfway through. I took a screenshot of the frozen page, where it stops loading.

    This is pretty depressing, as WP is my first choice for blogs. Any help would be appriciated.

    You are sure you have all files uploaded correctly?
    Have you checked with your host that they meet all the requirements?
    Are you on a Linux or Windows server?

    Files are uploaded correctly.

    Host *should* meet recomendations.

    I believe the server is FreeBSD.

    Can you use phpmyadmin to see if the tables have actually been created?

    This has been posted here before and I think the answer is an edit to the install file... I'll try to find.

    It could be that sendmail is not working:

    Have you tried looking at the blog url to see if the blog is there? If so, using phpmyadmin can get your password.

    There is a possible file edit which could be looked at

    Ah, thanks. I found my problem.

    My host: "I removed sendmail due to abuse from poorly written PHP scripts."

    Now I'll go try to work around it...
