I cannot get Magento to work for me.
Chris Williams did try to help out on this thread without success in the end though (Thank You Chris):
Before I switch to Nexcess I am seeking help from fellow users on Dreamhost who got Magento going.
I have a domain name registered and hosted with Dreamhost.
I am on Mac OS X 10.4.10 and used Cyberduck to SFTP the contents of the unzipped Magento folder to http://www.mydomain.com
I have changed permissions on the designated folders in these instructions:
After reading all the posts on this forum, I have the corresponding questions to the Dreamhost support and these are the relevant answers:
“The only thing we don’t meet is the mhash extension in PHP. We’ve got
Apache 1 & 2, PHP 5.2.2, and MySQL 5.0. Unfortunately the only way to
get the mhash extension in PHP is to compile your own PHP.” <--- I had asked them whether they meet the Magento system requirements: http://www.magentocommerce.com/system-requirements
“AllowOverride is already set to All in the httpd.conf file for your domain”
“mod_rewrite and .htaccess files and all that are already enabled by
default on all accounts. It doesn’t look like you’ve uploaded the
.htaccess file, though.” <---- Where is the .htacess file I am suppose to upload and which others on this forum have mentioned they edited?
I am not a developer and/ or technically proficient so please if you have the patience and the will to help out, do post a tutorial. A step by step tutorial. I cannot possibly be the only one in this case. We would all be grateful.
Please feel free to PM me if you prefer.
Thank you in advance.
