I have installed Magento so many time. What am I doing wrong?

I want to host the site on my computer. I install everything as default eg.’localhost’ for all the settings.

Once the set up is complete everything works fine but have localhost in the url.

I go into and change the secure and unsecure url’s to my domain name thewebsite.co.nz

I then lose all css and links add on a SID and stop working. I have tried deleting cache.

Could some please tell me what I am doing wrong?

I’m not sure that I understand your story right. But what I don’t understand:

Why would you install to “localhost” first and then change that? Why if you want to install to http://www.something.com you don’t just call that url and use that to install Magento? I think that would work great.

Gr,
Paul

because I was stupid and wasn’t putting in the http:// part. So it wouldn’t accept it.

Thanks so much for that!
