I just downloaded Magento (magento-0.8.17240) and tried to install it locally in order just to check it out. I’m running Mac OS X 10.3.9, Apache v1.3, PHP 5.2.5 as an Apache module and MySQL 5.0.51a. Using the install wizard I got as far as logging into the Admin backend, however at this point it fails to load the admin pages.
The Apache error log gives the following:
[Fri Mar 14 02:15:45 2008] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: /Library/WebServer/Documents/magento/skin/adminhtml/default/default/styles.css
[Fri Mar 14 02:15:46 2008] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: /Library/WebServer/Documents/magento/skin/adminhtml/default/default/images/input_ele_bg.gif
I checked the locations indicated and indeed these files aren’t there.
A look at the magento database using myphpadmin showed it was populated so the connection to the MySQL server seems ok.
Any ideas as to what went wrong?
Thanks for your help
