Having uploaded the files, I went to install, but get

Not Found
The requested URL /install/ was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

On checking, it seems there is no /install/ folder included in the downloaded zip file.

There are install folders a few levels within the app folder, but none at mydomain.com/install

What is supposed to be in that folder?
How do I fix this?

/install folder should not be there, it is a virtual folder. please check if .htaccess file is in magento root.

Actually, I have just noticed that although I selected 0.6.13110-full.zip (50.4 Mb), what I keep getting is 0.6.13110.zip (8.3 Mb)

How do I download the full version, since the download select box seems to be not working properly?

Will this solve the above problem?

.htaccess is where it is in the downloaded files, in /var/.htaccess

It only says

Order deny,allow
Deny from all

There should be .htaccess in magento root, please make sure it was uploaded.
You might need to enable showing hidden files in your FTP client.

I copied the htaccess file to the root folder.

I tried it both as is, and blank.

I still get the same error:
The requested URL /install/ was not found on this server.

Should the htaccess file have some commands in it?

The website is configured for PHP 5.2.2

I have used .htaccess files several times on various sites.
I can always see htaccess files using the ftp agent

Could you show us what’s in the .htaccess file under the root folder ?

I have placed an htaccess file in the root directory and chmodded it to 777.

The htaccess file is blank.
There was no htaccess file in the root folder of the downloaded application, so I have no idea what should be in there.

I still get the same error.

@Kharisma: I think you still talking about /var/.htaccess
We are talking about /.htaccess file

I can see all htaccess files.

There is an htaccess file in the var folder. It is still there in its original form with the Order deny all, etc.

There is also a blank htaccess file in the root folder.
It is chmodded to 777

There was no file there originally, so I do not know what commands to put in.
The downloaded zip file did not have an htaccess file in the root folder.

This is my directory on the website:

Directory
app rwxr-xr-x
de rwxr-xr-x
fr rwxr-xr-x
js rwxr-xr-x
lib rwxr-xr-x
media rwxrwxrwx
skin rwxr-xr-x
var rwxrwxrwx

Other files
.htaccess rwxrwxrwx
LICENSE.txt rw-r--r--
cron.php rw-r--r--
favicon.ico rw-r--r--
index.php rw-r--r--

And here’s your problem - blank .htaccess in root.

put this in there:

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
    
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
    php_flag short_open_tag on
</IfModule>

DirectoryIndex index.php

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_URI} !^/media/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/skin/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/js/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l

RewriteRule 
.* index.php

Thank you

Why is this file not included in the download?

It seems a number of people have had this problem, but I could not find an answer anywhere in the forum or elsewhere.

Actually it is included. I downloaded ZIPs (both light and full versions) myself to make sure it is there indeed.

How do you extract the ZIP archive ?

I think I know what’s happening.

I have a Mac, and it won’t let me name files .htaccess. It says that files that have nothing before the dot are system files and will be invisible.

I have to name files “whatever.htaccess”. I guess that’s why some of us don’t see it.
