Hi,

How much time did u wait? Because it takes around 3-4 minutes max sometimes to do all configuration at back-end while installing newer Magento versions. So if you are judging it in a min or 2 then please wait for 3-4 mins and then check.

Thanks

Im using Google Chrome and this is the error.
After about 30 seconds it displays this.

This web page has a redirect loop.

The web page at http://localhost/seasidepie/index.php/install/ has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

Here are some suggestions:
Reload this web page later.
Learn more about this problem.
More information on this error
Below is the original error message

Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects.

Could it be that it times out after so many seconds for some reason?

I was having the same problem when I was trying to login to the backend. Magento kept redirecting me to the login page without any warnings whatsoever.

I added a new entry on my local hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc) like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost.com

and I installed magento again using localhost.com/magento from the beggining. That solved my redirecting problem.

I have followed the instructions on the magento website for installation with WAMP but there are a couple of extentions I was unable to find.

3) Edit apache/conf/httpd.conf change line:

#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
to

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
(just remove the # )

DONE.

4) Edit apache/bin/php.ini and php/php.ini (same changes on both files - note, as of XAMPP 1.7.1, you will only have to change php/php.ini) change lines (the first change is not necessary on xampp):

;extension=php_mcrypt.dll
to

extension=php_mcrypt.dll
and changes lines:

COULD NOT FIND THIS.

;extension=php_curl.dll
to

extension=php_curl.dll
(just remove the ; )

DONE.

4a) On WAMP you must also change the following line in apache2/bin/php.ini and php/php.ini changes lines:

;extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll
to

extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll
(just remove the ; )

DONE.

In addition to php_pdo_mysql.dll, you may also need to make sure you are loading:

extension=php_pdo.dll

COULD NOT FIND THIS.

Any help would be much appreciated…

yes indeed !! adding 127.0.0.1 localhost.com to the hosts file and using localhost.com/magento in browsing sealed the deal !!

thank you very much for the help
