I downloaded magento-188.8.131.52.zip
Unzipped and put into my docroot: site.com/magento
Changed the permissions per the install guide.
go to site.com/magento in a browser and provide the db info. I click continue and it takes a long time and returns \\\\\\\"Internal Server Error\\\\\\\” (useless info on the page).
The error.log says
[Thu Sep 20 10:01:28 2012] [error] [client 184.108.40.206] Premature end of script headers: index.php
I take this to mean there is a timeout...?
I\\\\\\\’ve tried quite a few options to increase memory limits and timeout limits, like
php_value memory_limit 94M
php_value max_execution_time 900000
php_value mysql.connect_timeout 1000000000
#php_value apc.shm_size 128
#php_value post_max_size 20M
php_value default_socket_timeout 2000000
none of them are working. I\\\\\\\’ve tried various combos of some enabled/disabled/etc.
RLimitMem 128000000 128000000
but apparently that requires root:
(error.log): [Thu Sep 20 14:51:43 2012] [error] Must be uid 0 to raise maximum RLimitMEM
I\\\\\\\’ve also tried with no .htaccess, same result.
The install only gets a certain number of tables setup: 97 once, 107 another time. I thought I saw 200+ once. How many tables are there?
Is there a way to continue? If I go to site.com/magento it gives me an error about an existing table
Error in file: \\\\\\\"/home/myuser/site.com/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/sql/catalog_setup/install-220.127.116.11.php\\\\\\\" - SQLSTATE[42S01]: Base table or view already exists: 1050 Table \\\\\\\’catalog_product_entity\\\\\\\’ already exists
since it tries to install from the beginning instead of where it left off.
magento-check.php says I\\\\\\\’m good:
