Probably the installation is taking a long time due to the remote connection. At the point of the install where it asks you to deploy the webapps and restart the application server, prior to restarting the application server you could raise the session timeout. You can find this in futuretense.ini in the WebCenter Sites installation directory, property cs.timeout. You can set it very high (hours) for the duration of the install, then lower it again afterwards if you wish.
Installing can be painfully slow over remote connections e.g. X11 tunnelled over ssh. You could get a slight increase in speed by using arcfour cipher in ssh. For much better improvement you could use vnc on the server instead of X11 over ssh.
Hi pratush i have faced the same issue before few days the solution is create the data base on same machine. It will work
Thanks a Lot !!!
I was stuck on same error for last 2 days.Now installation was successful after changing the timeout property.
