this really is hardcore barriers to entry for such a well known commericla product why are there 10 hurdles before even installing the thing? Every problem I solve seems to create a new one… Is there not a straight forward installation process baby steps ABC for Magento. I mean baby steps not taking me down 10 different rabbit holes........
I am agree I can’t just install magento, its says Please enter a valid URL. Protocol is required (http://, https:// or ftp://)
what its that ???, http://localhost its a valid URL if you have a web server running, no mether what server you got, it must install, I have never see a web site saying this error and not install.
and let me say that I just donwload Zen server and it is the same SH, it install but not running Apache for some reason (this not happen using WAMP 2.1)
If you get the “Please enter a valid URL. Protocol is required (http://, https:// or ftp://)” error, try the following:
1) Refresh the install page
2) Inspect Base-url input field using FireBug and remove the “validate-url” CSS class
3) Tick the “Skip Base URL Validation Before the Next Step” checkbox
4) Click “Continue”
There has been an error processing your request
Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.
Error log record number: 685912958
I had to unzip Magento into the htdocs of XAMMP to fix this probelm, then I tried using firebug to get around the issue which once again caused the same issue.
Any help would be greatly appericated!
I am currently uploading Magento onto my host server and will have a try of installing it there tomorrow.
