I followed the tutorial up to the point of opening the wallet url file in Chrome, and the blockchain download froze at about 45% . after many hours not moving I rebooted before rerunning the Java command
$ java -cp burst.jar:conf nxt.Nxt
where it correctly identifies partial load :-

2018-05-08 17:06:53 INFO: Last block height: 210400

2018-05-08 17:13:36 INFO: nxt.apiServerEnforcePOST = “true”
but then does not resume as shown in the tutorial video.
I can reopen the wallet and it shows the downloading blockchain popup but no progress bar.
Also the wallet has yet to show the burst coins I sent it from my PC wallet. I expect it will once the it is synced.
So what can cause the java command to freeze at block height 210400 and not restart?
Should I use mysql commands to drop database and create it again? The file is 3.41 Gb and it needs to be over 7 I think.
