(this is exactly how I got to the point I am at now, and an exact email I sent to a friend of mine who is probably way to busy to figure this out for me. Help! Need to get my online business up and running!)
Hey bud. Question.. I cant find this resolved on any forum.. Not sure why its happening.. I’ve been following the guide (http://net.tutsplus.com/videos/screencasts/easy-e-commerce-with-magento/) and got down to the
section. Went through License, Localization, and got to Configuration. I’ve followed the guide and pressed continue, but it just reloads the page and nothing else happens. I have all the red asterisk items filled in (as default values). I found a few forums where people have the same problem, and no one has a resolution.
Do I need to change any of these values in the configure area? Or do you know what else might be causing the problem? What should I do next?
“Database Name*” Magento
“User Name*” Root
“User Password” (blank)
“Tables Prefix” (blank)
“Web Access Options”
“Base URL*” http://localhost/magento/
“Admin Path *” admin
“Skip Base URL validation before next step” (Unchecked)
“Use Web Server (Apache) Rewrites” (Unchecked)
“Use Secure URLs (SSL)” (Unchecked)
“Session storage options”
“Save session data in” File system
There’s a bunch of people with this, or a similar problem (at http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/32505/P0/). I had to use the older version of xampplite (1.7.0 instead of the newer 1.7.1 to avoid an error [with object.php line 488]). I’ve tried Magento versions 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 same problem with configuration though.
I’m completely clueless about this stuff. A total noob to internet store stuff
