Same problem here,
Can’t install Magento because on page 2 of the Installation ( Localization ) all required fields ( Locale, Time Zone, Default Currency ) have a list of EMPTY select options. Any suggestions how to solve this???
Well, find the solution in another thread and have copied it here for all the others finding this thread first (like me):
Thanks to tiitrae:
EDIT: find the file
and copy it to local codepool:
Lines 221 and 309
htmlspecialchars() expects at most 3 parameters, 4 given
I deleted the last parameter “, false”
site working as a charm after 3 days on it.
And thanks to vjtemplates:
It’s not a good idea to directly modify Magento core files. When you upgrade, it will be overwritten. It’s better to copy the file that you want to modify to local codepool folder first (app/code/local).
