Installation on WAMP environment

I note some folk have had problems installing Omeka on a WAMP environment.

I got around the installation issues by installing the tables "elements" & "item_types" directly from the application/core/schema directory using phpmyadmin and removing them from the array $_defaultTables in application\models\Installer\Task\Schema.php.

This is for a development implementation (not the live site) and seems to be working fine.

I hope that helps someone.

Yes, there's a problem with the Zend Framework executing long queries for most people who attempt it.

The place you normally see this is on installation, because some of the element descriptions are fairly long, but a complicated enough advanced search would likely cause the same issue.
