hi guys,

im a web developer and new to magento.  I have a client who has a live magento store and i have been asked to create a development server for them.

Whats the best way to go about it?

Is it best to create a sub-domain on their existing domain or use a completely different url?

Any step by step guides for newbies?

Does magento work without issues on fasthosts?

I appreciate your response guys and thanks in advance

Cheers

Ran

Thank you.

It’s very good instructions for us. From this we developed Magento with windows 8 Metro UI styles

and we made very good instructions to our products (Magento with windows 8 Metro UI styles)

We also provide a lot of magento extensions for magento with good installation documents.

Regards,

Hello folks, how are you?

I have a problem while installing Magento at the configuration step.

The problem is right at the web access options where i put my url.

My website shows http://www.mywebsite.com.br/magento/.

If i just delete this part, a message displays in red and it says that the url is invalid and the response from server isn´t valid.

I apreciate your help in advance.....

Neither of the linked tutorials seem to apply to the Magento 1.7.0.2 package.

The full release, which I uploaded to my server, does not contain the file http://www.example.com/magento/downloader.php as mentioned here, nor a directory called http://www.example.com/magento/install/ as indicated in this manual.
Instead I have tried to open the install script via the following addresses:
http://www.example.com/magento/downloader/index.php
http://www.example.com/magento/install.php

Prior to upload, I made sure that my server fit the requirements, using the magento-check.php script. Yet all I get is half an error message when I try to access the installer using the above urls (or any other, for that matter):

500 An error occured on this web page

The error was
:

Any wild guesses what is going on?

Here’s a simple step by step guide for installing Magento.

First:

Download the latest stable Magento package form from this site: http://www.magentocommerce.com/download
Take note that Magento is not compatible with MySQL 4; it needs MySQL 5 to run properly. There are 2 versions: standard and full installation is much larger and includes sample data like stores, categories, products, image and others.

Second:

Upload the package on your hosting account through your cPanel file? Manager or using FTP client

You can either put Magento file under the public_html folder. Your website then will be accessible directly through your domain.
Or you can put it under a sub folder. Once it is uploaded you can extract it through your cPanel? File Manager.

Third:

Set file permissions

You will need to set the following folders and file to writable mode by the server:

*magento/app/etc
*magento/media
*magento/var
*magento/var/htaccess

If you downloaded the “full version” of Magento you will need to set all of the directories in the folder media to writable as well.
*magento/media/catalog
*magento/media upload

To do so, login to the cPanel for your domain and click on the File Manager icon under the Files Selection.

Set file permissions (

Make sure that a Show Hidden file (dot files) is selected)

File Manager Directory--Double click on the folder icon to open folder. When you’re ready to change the permissions of a file or folder, select the checkbox next to it. Then, click on Change Permissions icon.

Fourth:

Create a MySQL database and assign a user to it. Stay in cPanel and click on the MySQL database wizard icon under Databases.Create a MySQL database.

Fifth:

Run the Set up wizard. Use your web browser to surf to the Magento installation wizard. After agreeing to the terms and setting your locale settings, configuration of database connection is next

Sixth:

Enter the database details: Database Name, User name and user password. You can leave the other options intact. Click on the check box next to “skip base URL validation before next step.

Enter the database details

Click on the continue button. Enter the personal information and the admin login details you want to use. You can leave the encryption key field empty. The script will generate one for you.

Admin Login Details

Click on the continue button. That’s the entire configuration you need to do.
