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)

well it requires some fixes.

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”

It is the easiest solution.

Hello,

I\\\\\\\’m having trouble trying to get Magento to install onto a local machine using XAMMP, I have followed the first few step fine after some trouble at the start. I have now got the \\\\\\\"Please enter a valid URL. Protocol is required (http://, https:// or ftp://)\\\\\\\” error appearing. I have tried disabling the Java & JavaScript via firefox which has caused an error;

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.

I have used http://127.0.0.1/magento/ to install on XAMPP and it worked perfectly.

This is a new feature for the latest Magento release.

A MUCH easier way to bypass this locally is to just inspect the element for the base url field ( with Firebug ), highlight the input and delete the “validate-url” class from it.

Then press the install button and it will proceed, no need to edit any code.

Hope this was helpful.

Justin

Thanks worked like a charm

With wamp and magento 1.5.1 you can use

http://127.0.0.1/magento1.5.1/

instead of
http://localhost/magento1.5.1/

in your Base URL

it works !
