Wow that was weird.... I finally got it all up and running to the install screen. Agreed to the terms, Selected the localalization, and then clicked Beat Download, then it started downloading all the updates, then immediately threw me to a screen that said this:
Whoops, it looks like you have an invalid PHP version.
Magento supports PHP 5.2.0 or newer. Find out how to install Magento using PHP-CGI as a work-around.
I thought that’s what I had just done. Any help would be much appreciated.
