Linux Installation Fails at Automatic Download

Hi all grin

When trying to install Magento, it always fails at the Magento Installation Wizard - Automatic Download (Beta) part.

The black box with green text appears, but only gets half way (each time I run it seems to get to a different point, but never completes).
Therefore I can’t move on with the installation.

The HTACCESS has been modified to make the .php handler PHP5 [AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php].
No other changes have been made.

The server is Linux based - PHPINFO can be found at: http://magento.baswsc.co.uk/phpinfo.php

Below is an example of where the box got to last time I tried.

What I have tried so far
- Setting write permissions as poer the Installation Guide Page
- Setting write permission (777) to every file in magneto directory
- Deleting all the files and starting again, running the installation in Firefox rather than IE7.
- Tried both packages.

Any ideas?

Thank you!!

Try chown -R apache magento and chgrp -R apache magento

This has solved lots of issues on my dedicated fasthosts server

Hmmm and then the next time it gets even less far than it did in the first place.  :-(

Try to increase the memory limit and time out limit on your server.
You can do it in the .htaccess
If it is not going to help, then upload the full version and use the SVN install and not the PEAR installation

Next time it stops, edit the end of the URL to:

install/wizard/config/

That will move you onto the next step.

Hello Gavin,

The easiest way to install it is either from the downloaded zip file or directly from the SVN - Remember is still a BETA version and not everything works as planned. Trust me .. I have been testing each and every one of the previous versions so far ...

Hope it helps,
