Do you have anything in your error log?

Hi CIET NCERT
This problem can happen if the database you are trying to install your site to is not empty.
Please make sure there are no data in the database before installing.
The problem is caused by having empty tables so one part of mahara thinks the site exists but another part thinks the site is not installed so you end out in the loop being stuck on admin/index.php

If you are using Postgres database sometimes the creation of a database will be populated from template1 rules.
To make sure you get a clean datebase you need to go:
create database "mahara" with template "template0" owner "maharauser";
Hope that helps

The problem is I am not getting the continue button after the installation. And my installation process gets interrupted at
And after this of i click login or any other button or link I get this page
Which is a complete mess. Nothing works here.
What i need to do here? Without entering the admin how to deal with these plug-ins. And some of the post suggesting that these warning are not needfuls. We may and may not correct them. Now?

Ok, it looks as though your initial install fails part way through for some reason.
I do remember one issue where some installs failed at this point. It was for mysql installs where it had a problem with index length.
If you are using mysql you could take a look at
You will need to drop the database and begin fresh again.
This time before you start have this line in your config.php file
$cfg->productionmode = false;
This should output the errors to screen that you are experiencing
If your errors are different to the ones mentioned in other forum post could do a screenshot of the errors and add them here.

Thank you so much Mr. Robert Lyori. Finally i got the solution from the given link.
I commented the following line and got thorough it:
<INDEX NAME="pathix" UNIQUE="false" FIELDS="path"/>
Thank you so much.
