9) Continue with install, all should be good!

After try change below, I still can’t log in, and the file I change is C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/lmhosts.sam, can you give me a solution.Thanks.

NOTE:

Magento requires itself to be installed on a host name with at least one period ‘.’ in it, therefore installing to http://localhost doesn’t work. (Having installed to //localhost, I was unable to get it running even after the following changes. In the end I had to reinstall using the new host name which then worked fine.)

If you can’t login to the administration panel after installation, that’s because there’s a cookie problem. Add these lines:

127.0.0.1 magento.localhost.com http://www.localhost.com
to:

C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts (edit this file in notepad)
Then go to http://www.localhost.com/<folder>

NB: This was the key note (9) to allowing me to install the latest version of Magento on the latest version of XAMPP (13 July 2011). You will need to change the permission of the ‘hosts’ file in window to allow you to save. All the other changes had already been made in my version of XAMPP. Once you have made the change reinstall Magento using the downloader and the http://www.localhost.com/<folder>.

For those of you that don’t want to do your own install, know that several web hosting companies will install and do upgrades for you. The initial install is usually free. Any upgrades usually costs money. Nexcess, for example, charges $250 per upgrade. For that price, they copy everything to a dev site, do the upgrade on the dev site, then allow you to test it and make sure everything works before they do the upgrade on the live site. We run a love poems site and I highly recommend this, as it saved us a lot of time. When doing this, make sure you save a copy of your htaccess file in case you need to preserve it after the upgrade.

Any chance on getting a guide for installing on a Godaddy shared hosting environment? I know GoDaddy isn’t ideal, but client won’t budge on that… kinda stuck with them for now. You can find the details of my current environment and setup from this post:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/469421/

Much appreciated for any feedback and direction...I’ve tried a ton of scenarios…
