I installed magento on my local server which is win vista using xampp. I enabled mcrypt and curl modules it was missing. I figured based on how nice magento site is and how it is well organized, can’t be anything but easy. I dread ever again using OSCommerce or ZenCart and I thought you were life savers.
Then after succesful install. I get empty home page (with no products, design is ok).
And admin… Shows login form, which if I enter correct info nothing happens (I assume it reloads same page) or it tells me that username is wrong if I enter something else.
This was in IE. I tried Firefox and same thing there. I saw a topic on the forum about it and download file head.php but nothing changed. Just out of curiosity I tried Opera where I can login to admin. Wow.Must be that developers use Opera all the time.
Now I tried to add product and category. I would fill the fields and then nothing would happen, it would say it is saved, but it can’t be seen nowhere.
I am completely confused. I can’t believe that this all totally isn’t working, but frankly I don’t know what to thing.
Do you have some ideas what is happening that can help me understand how to use this sw?!
