I am running the following:
Linux box with Apache 1.3.41 (Unix)
PHP 4.4.8 with PHP 5.2.3 available using .php5
(Note that the system is installed in a subdir named /shop)
I attempted to install Magento by uncommenting the following lines from .htaccess:
Action php5-cgi /cgi-bin/php-cgi
AddHandler php5-cgi .php
The above did not work; it returned an error:
The requested URL /cgi-bin/php-cgi/shop/index.php/install/ was not found on this server.
I tried all sorts of stuff such as reuploading it, setting it to 755, making sure the cgi-bin folder was set to 755, etc. So I gave up, recommented the above 2 lines of code, and instead added this to .htaccess:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php
This at least got the installation going. I ran into a snag in the “Package Management through the Web” option; it completely failed. So I went for the manual option because I had no idea what the SVN Installation meant. The manual option also failed, and I’ve attached a list of what was displayed. I even highlighted the errors that concerned me.
Does anyone know what’s wrong based on the above information? I wonder if it’s because the installation is in a subdirectory? Or is it because one of the System Requirements have not been met? I thought I met all requirements however. Is there some sort of “test.php” file that will check whether all requirements have been met?
Any help is appreciated.
