Hi,
I did a reinstall but still the same problem. Once i get into the wizard, i specify the database settings- i created the database using phpMyAdmin, and after specifying the user name db settings, etc and when i clicked next i got the error again. URL is: http://www.dhattgroup.co.nz/dgtech/magento. I guess ill have to wait for my host to upgrade or change hosts.

Fatal error: Call to a member function children() on a non-object in /home/content/l/i/n/mydomain/html/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Config.php on line 158

This is line 158

Aha so it seems there is a lot of installation problems… I use lunarpages and had them updgrade me to the php5 server…

followed all the instructions to no avail… i figured its the htaccess issues… but the documentation on
http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/installing-magento-on-a-php4-server

is not accurate or not easy to read because the htaccess file is so confusing.

Hi All,
This is my first post here.  Excited about transitioning an existing site over to magento. 

Anyone here have any experience installing Magento on MediaLayer Application Hosted configurations?  I am currently trying to install full version 1.0.19870.4 and am having issues with the installer redirecting to localhost (my machine!?) for some inexplicable reason.  I’ve attached the HTTP header session (some host / server names have been changed to protect the innocent smile )

FYI - I ran magento-check php script and it had no complaints..

Apache 2.2.8
PHP 5.2.5

Any help will be appreciated - I can’t wait to get this sucker running!

It would be beneficial to have a Linux virtual machine created with Magento pre-installed and working

I’ve been working with Magento for a couple of months now. I just tried the magento-1.0.19870.4 version. This is the FIRST version of Magento that I’ve been able to install without issues of one kind or another. After all my b*tching (to myself, mostly), I want to give credit where credit is due. Great job, guys!
cool smile

Hello,

Could you help me anybody?I couldn’t install the script, because I got “PHP Extension “pdo_mysql” must be loaded” error.

First I did run the magtchk.php and I got this: Congratulations! Your server meets the requirements for Magento.

I uploaded the Magento to my server and I wanted setup, but I got the error.

I did run again the magtchk.php and I got this:

“Your server does not meet the following requirements in order to install Magento.
The following requirements failed, please contact your hosting provider in order to receive assistance with meeting the system requirements for Magento:

* You are missing the pdo extension
* You are missing the pdo_mysql extension”

If I delete the Magento the check is good. I don’t understand it.

The server use PHPSuExec.

This is the php info without Magento: http://webbolt.info/info.php

And with Magento: http://webbolt.info/magento/info.php

What is the problem? Thanks a lot!

Lookingh at the 2 links shows that there are using different php.ini. Presumably the magento one tells something about pdo…

You might consider:
1 - Making a backup copy of magento’s php.ini
[SIDENOTE: since you have cpanel and if space is not a problem, I would recommend that ypu make a backup copy of your magento file-tree. And if space is widely available, do a backup copy before doing any significant change… you will save lots of time!]

2 - editing the lines handling pdo.

General note: There are cases where magento-check diagnoses a bad configuration, but where magento runs anyway. So do not just rely on the message from the chack, try launching magento itself

"Infernal Server Error” (That’s NOT a sprelling mistake!)

Hi People,

Now been through some 16 re-attempts at Magento installation on a ‘HostingBay’ server in Oz (albeit I’m in the UK).
Initially there were three compatibility problems shown up by the magento-check.php which I referred to the server crew and they fixed.
The check now Congratulates me on using a compatible system.

So, I run the Install/Download extracted from the ‘magento-downloader-1.1.3.zip’ file and uploaded.
Whilst I can’t find any reference to suPHP or phpsuexec in the phpinfo report - the system goes directly to ‘Internal Server Error’ (500) If the Magento subdirectory has 777 rights OR any of the advised ‘uncomment’ changes to .htaccess.

With the directory set to 755, phase one will run ending with the “Download completed. You can proceed with installation” message, and [Continue Magento Installation Button]… But that’s it, Whatever I’ve tried regarding permissions and variations to .htaccess (from comments, suggestions and ideas springing from going through the destructions and forum posts) - I can’t get anything other than the ‘InFernal Server Error’ from there on.

The initial process log probably IS telling me where it hurts - but I’m not conversant with the CGI/pearl commands going on…
After the first line comment there are three warnings, everything else appears to download/install successfully.

Do the warnings declare the problem?  Can any of you spot the obvious mistake… like User skipped brain engagement phase?

The warnings / initial part of log =
Did not download optional dependencies: pear/XML_RPC, use --alldeps to download automatically

Warning: popen() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/digit875/public_html/go/downloader/pearlib/php/OS/Guess.php on line 247

Warning: fgets(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/digit875/public_html/go/downloader/pearlib/php/OS/Guess.php on line 248

Warning: pclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/digit875/public_html/go/downloader/pearlib/php/OS/Guess.php on line 256

pear/PEAR can optionally use package “pear/XML_RPC” (version >= 1.4.0)
------------------------------------- all clear / ok from here -------------------------

Your help and comments would be appreciated.

Update 25th August 2008

Problem Resolved: Directory Permissions, some more Directory Permissions, Yet More Directory Permissions (and maybe a few file permissions), and a php.ini problem.

It would seem that the server the site is on really doesn’t like you leaving a potential security threat in the form of 777 permissions.

Initially the Install would only produce an ‘Internal Server Error’ Page.
When that was cleared by changing the /Downloads directory (and its subs) permissions (chmod) from 777 to 755 - the download/install ran ok.

So, then you get the [proceed] button - but the download/install in the meantime has created a lot of new directories - all with 777 permissions, so you need to use FTP or cPanel to sort these out before clicking that [proceed] link.

Ok, so maybe you can now get as far as the configure screen. In my case I couldn’t.
During earlier searching through forum posts regarding compatibility, I had come across an item that suggested a fix (in relevant circumstances where the path to resources was causing the system to declare that essential modules didn’t exist) - was to add a php.ini file - within which should be the line “php_flag short_open_tag on”: This was still in my Magento subdirectory.

The result was that whilst the overall site passed the magento-check.php routine, the same check from the Magento subdirectory reported that there was no PDO/MySQL functionality.
The Directory permissions were 755, there were no obvious conflicts in the relevant .htaccess files - so why was it OK on the site, but not in the Magento Directory?… Removed the php.ini - and full compatibility returned.

Now - finally through to the Admin Screen (Dashboard)… But none of the links worked.
There are a number of threads on this subject elsewhere.
But in short… Directory permissions again.  The Javascript directories had been missed in the earlier 777 to 755 chmod changes.
Hence the Drop-Down menus weren’t working. Changed those… And finally I can get into the site management.

Hoping this will help others with the same or similar problems.
It obviously depends on the Hosting set-up.
Mine (at HostingBay-Melbourne-Australia) is Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP5 (all with compatible versions, extensions & modules).
But this protection against security risks (which is good… IF you know about it) has caused three very long days of struggle.

Good luck with yours.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Further update 5th September 2008

3 Days doing CHMODS ! - Why don’t the FTP client programs do recursive permission setting ?
The supposed command line CHMOD -R directory/file to do this - fails (on the server I’m using)
returning a ‘no such Directory’ response.
Found that some FTP progs do offer recursion… but then do both files & folders the same… UGH!

Ahh! - Found ‘FlashFTP’ (flashfxp.com) - and… THIS IS THE ANSWER cool smile

It will CHMOD the entire tree from where you want - setting folders to one selection and files to another !!!!

Gosh, I wish I’d found this two weeks ago.

regards to all,

Genisys
