SharePoint 2013 Install stuck

After installing SharePoint and creating an Application, I get the image you see below.  It's been stuck on that page for about 20 minutes.  Is this normal?

This shouldn't take long

Depending upon performance of you system, it can take 15 minutes or more to create a new web app. You can watch progress somewhat. Using SQL Server Manager you can check to see if the database is created or not. In IIS manager you can see if the IIS web site and IIS web app (if creating a new one) have been created. You can also look in the file system in the inet folder to see if a folder has been created for the web app and if files are present.)

 It can nerve whacking!

It finally times out.  I will try creating the web app again and see what happens

Now I get this error


Sorry, something went wrong



This content database requires upgrade and could not be attached in this operation. Use either the [stsadm -o addcontentdb] command or [Mount-SPContentDatabase] cmdlet instead.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

It might be best to delete the web app if possible from Central Administration and attempt to create new.

If it was never created, then you should be able to create it new.

I just tried again and waiting to see if it gives me a problem.

It's still trying to create the application and it's been almost 40 minutes.  I even took a shower and I get the same image that I initially posted.

This is too long. You will need to troubleshoot logs, starting with event viewer.

I found the solution.  I increased the default "Shutdown Time Limit" of the CA application pool from 90  to 400 and it worked.
