I have a fresh install of Magento ver. and I been playing with it for like 2 days trying to get the categories “navigation” and products to show up. I cleared every cache possible in the admin I re-indexed everything possible. The products are enabled they have correct qty. In the admin I have display out of stock items to yes. But I still get no navigation or sitemap with any kind of category or product data. I was reading many posts on other people having similar issues but they where with older versions and none of the fixes seem to work. I am considered a senior level developer so I shouldn’t have any issues with this but wrong. I pretty much came to a conclusion the installer which I installed from ssh directly onto server, I believe its missing some sort of db info or file or something. I followed the ssh install instructions to the t I got SEO urls working great. I have been using oscommerce for many years and thought I would give magento a try but so far it seems to be very slow and I cant get the basics to work properly this is very aggravating and for this being a stable release this is bogus! I am really tempted to just stay with OSC. If anyone has the same issue and had it resolved can you please shed some light on this.

Thank you so much!!!
