Hi MetaBurn.

Thanks for your reply. Yes it was a complete fresh install from a complete 1.6 download version. I did import the SQL file through PHP MyAdmin.
Well, I will try to manually install the SQL and see what happens. Otherwise I will make a complete removal and try it one more time.
Again, thanks for your reply. Much appreciated.

Ira.

Thanks magentobmc. This helped me too. Also, next time I will not go daddy - it\’s too painfully slow for database driven sites.

I have been looking through magento and will be importing products from a mysql database into magento.

I want to keep both databases because I have a lot of magento irrelevant stuff in the external database that I need to keep.

I have had a look at the product api and there is an ID field that I can use as a key to map between the databases. It looks to me that this is an auto incremented integer.
However, you have another field called SKU, which is also supposed to be unique. Which should I use to uniquely identify the relationship.

Thanks

Hello,
I have been reading this forum and have seen several Magento Merchant sites in the past.  I wish to know how they got the Checkout by Amazon button.  I am planning my site and I wish to have that functionality for my site.

After trying to install Magento Community on my Mac running MAMP I’ve finally got everything up and running.

My first problem was the BASE URL. Magento requires a fully qualified Base Url to install but if your running MAMP you don’t have a fully qualified URL. You probably have something like this: “http://localhost:8888/magento”. I tried a lot of different things and even found a Javascript hack where you remove the validation for the Base URL. The solution I used was to replace “localhost” in my URL with my IP address. So instead of this “http://localhost:8888/magento” I used “http://my.ip.add.ress:8888/magento” and it worked. NOTICE: replace “my.ip.add.ress” with whatever your IP address happens to be. If you don’t have an IP address, the Javascript hack will probably work.

My next problem was when I got to the “create an admin account” page. I entered all of my information clicked “continue” and ... nothing. Nothing happened. I’m like WTF!? So I clicked again and again. I did some searching around. It turns out that there is a problem with the version of PHP that I’m running on MAMP. Specifically PHP version 5.3. So I went to the little MAMP control panel window that shows you your Apache and MySQL status, clicked on Preferences and then PHP and changed the version of PHP to 5.2. I tried my Magento install again and everything worked great.

I hope this helps future developers that want to install Magento on their local machine.

Good luck.

Here’s the Javascript hack that I found.

go to JS/prototype/validation.js

and search for this

[\’validate-url\’, \’Please enter a valid URL. Protocol is required (http://, https:// or ftp://)\’, function (v) {
return Validation.get(\’IsEmpty\’).test(v) || /^(http|https|ftp):\\/\\/(([A-Z0-9][A-Z0-9_-]*)(\\.[A-Z0-9][A-Z0-9_-]*)+)(:(\\d+))?\\/?/i.test(v) }],

Just Replace with

[\’validate-url\’, \’Please enter a valid URL. Protocol is required (http://, https:// or ftp://)\’, function (v) {
return true; }],

Basically you just need to comment out the validation crap and add below it a “return true”;

This is a thorough step-by-step instruction.  Tussen takk!! smile

Hi, I am very new to magento, just started today. I have read the installation guide, just wondering why do we install under http://www.xxxxxxxx.com/magento/ ? Is this a must go Procedure? why not just under http://www.xxxxxxxx.com/?
