Ok after days of frustration, I figured out the following (For Lunarpages if anyone’s searching on that)
Had to do the normal two things:
Action php5-cgi /cgi-bin/php5-cgi
AddHandler php5-cgi .php
to run in cgi mode. for some silly reason I thought I had the right php level, but I’m at 4. something…
uncomment the line for 1and1 hosting:
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
The only other confusing issue is when creating users for the sql databases. I would put a 10 char username, but since lunarpages adds something_ before the username, my 10 chars get chopped to 8. Had to type in the username and database names about 8 times during the install process before I finally got the right combination :(
I am trying to install sample data. I ftp the data into the media folder as requested. I ran the sql query on a new database I created and that looked okay (not that I know what I’m looking at).
It now says to run the install again, but when I go to:
http://www.mywebsite.com/magento/install (which redirects to http://www.mywebsite.com/magento/index.php/)
I simply get:
No input file specified.
What does this mean?
Also, didn’t I at one time see a full and light install (with or without sample data) ? The downloads now seem to be separate.
