Problem Installing v0.6

Hi,

so after trying to install v0.7 and coming to the the same dead end conclusion that Brady has detailed so acutely I decided to try v0.6. Now I am experiencing a different error and I’m just wondering where I’m going wrong.

I downloaded and installed Magento 0.6.14100 Light and CHMOD adjusted the appropriate files/folders. Now when I navigate to http://www.mydomain.com/magento I receive this error.

The requested URL /mydomain.com/w0704/d20/s08/b0290841/www/mydomain.com/magento/index.php was not found on this server.

So I adjusted the .htaccess file to Rewrite base to /www/mydomain.com/magento/

Like so…

AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
    
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
    php_flag short_open_tag on
</IfModule>

DirectoryIndex index.php

RewriteEngine on

#RewriteBase /www/mydomain.com/magento/

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/media/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/skin/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/js/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l

RewriteRule 
.* index.php

Same thing! I get a 404 error The requested URL /mydomain.com/w0704/d20/s08/b0290841/www/mydomain.com/magento/index.php was not found on this server.

Here’s where I think I might be going wrong. I have a shared server with multiple domains attached, “mydomain.com” is an added domain (not the registered account home domain). I have tried to install Magento under the original host domain name which results in the same error.

I’m sure this is a simple .htaccess problem, but I’m not sure where to start solving it.

Thanks Magento Community!

definitely bad idea to revert to an older version. and uh you still have your rewritebase commented out?

Dammit. I noticed that as soon as I came back to look at your reply. Thanks. However I am getting a new error now. “The page is not redirecting properly” - I’ll keep searching for this solution, I think I came across one on another thread.

I realize it’s a bad idea to revert to a previous version, but until a version of Magento is developed that I can run on my server I’m kind of stuck with v0.6. Any idea when v0.8 will arrive?

Now when trying to access ttp://www.domain.com/catalogue/ I am actually redirected to ttp://www.domain.com/catalogue/install/ however I receive a redirect error.

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

My .htaccess file looks like this…

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php 
#AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
    
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
    php_flag short_open_tag on
</IfModule>

DirectoryIndex index.php

RewriteEngine on

RewriteBase 
/catalogue/
#RewriteRule !\.(js|ico|txt|gif|jpg|png|css)$ index.php

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/media/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/skin/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/js/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l

RewriteRule 
.* index.php
