magento on MAC OSX 10.5 Leopard gives blank page on the second page (localization) of installation

I finally got Entropy version of the PHP 5 for MAC installed on my MAC OS 10.5 Leopard (Using the built-in Apache2) using
http://www.entropy.ch/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=3074 which resolves the problem with entropy being 32 bit whereas apache2 64 bit not letting pdo getting installed. 

Afterwards I followed the following installation steps:
mv magento-sample-data-1.0.19870/media/* magento/media/
mv magento-sample-data-1.0.19870/magento_sample_data_for_1.0.19870.sql magento/data.sql
cd magento
chmod o+w var var/.htaccess app/etc
chmod -R o+w media
mysql -u DBUSER -pDBPASS DBNAME < data.sql
set PHP path in the ~/.profile and source it.
./pear mage-setup .
./pear install -f magento-core/Mage_All_Latest
rm -rf downloader/pearlib/cache/* downloader/pearlib/download/*
cd ..
chmod -R 777 magento

and everything ran and installed perfectly without any errors.

When running the install wizard, I get the first registration page and click continue.  However, on the next page where it tries to localize, It gives a blank page.  in the apache-error file it displays the error:
[Tue Jun 17 23:44:23 2008] [notice] child pid 14982 exit signal Bus error (10)

Any help will be appreciated as I have gone through days trying to get php with PDO installed on the Leopard.

Thanks,

Any news on this problem? I also happen to be stuck here with the same setup as above. (Leopard 10.5.5 does not help either)

At one point, I thought the blank page problem had to do with php.ini settings like

display_errors = Off
short_open_tag = Off

But setting these to On does nothing. Now I am leaning towards the so called ”kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork error 302” problem a lot of people are discussing right now. Only happens in Safari though, Firefox still displays the white page of death.

The blank page happens after clicking Continue on the first Installation Wizard Page (regardless of full install or downloader install). It redirects to

http://localhost/magento/index.php/install/wizard/beginPost/

which immediately redirects to:

http://localhost/magento/index.php/install/wizard/locale/

which in Safari gives the error:

Safari can’t open the page.
Safari can’t open the page “http://localhost/magento/index.php/install/wizard/locale/”. The error was: “Operation could not be completed. (kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork error 302.)” (kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork:302) Please choose Report Bugs to Apple from the Safari menu, note the error number, and describe what you did before you saw this message.

I’ve tried both the downloader and the full 1.1.5 release. Seems as if I have to give MAMP a shot, unless someone can contribute to a solution here.

I gave up after spending tons of time on it and could not get it to work.

Instead, I opened up an account with SimpleHelix for 20 dollars a month.  They have a script that install magento without any problems.

I also am having this problem.  Has anyone gotten magento to install correctly with entropy and httpd in 32 bit mode?  A reply would be appreciated, either with assistance, or just to know that it’s possible.

Thanks,
Aaron

I have also run into this same issue with OS 10.5.5 and the Entropy builds. Has anyone here discovered a solution?

I found a workaround for this issue. I went into the httpd.conf file and uncommented the line by removing the # at the front of this line:

LoadModule php5_module        libexec/apache2/libphp5.so

I then restarted apache:

sudo apachectl graceful
This forces Apache to use the default OS X PHP build, which is missing mcrypt. mhash, and pdo_mysql support, but you don’t need this to start the install process.

Then I ran the Magento install. It will work until you get the point where it does the checks for mcrypt and such. There it will fail the checks. At that point I went back to the httpd.conf file and re-commented out (add the # back in) and restarted Apache. Now you should be back to using the Entropy.ch build which does have mcrypt, mhash, and pdo_mysql support. Finish the install and you should be good.

Ya, I’m having the same problem. I’m not getting anything in my /var/logs/apache2/error_log file. I have all error reporting turned on. Its nasty.

I guess they want you to spend 149 bucks to get them to set it up for you. But if this is the kind of support they are offering and even the basics is a problem then Ubercart is looking better in the long run

I’m also randomly getting blank pages with OS X 10.5.6 with Apache and PHP installed using MacPorts.

Apache error log shows something like this:
