Can’t find anything close to this here, so hopefully someone can help me. Been trying to make this work for several days now and going gray(er).
Trying to install on IXWebhosting shared server running PHP 4 using the CGI workaround as instructed. Basically get everything set up and running, get the info put in and the database gets set up by the install program, but then it goes to a 500 Error - Internal Server Error page at this address: http://www.xxxxxxxx.com/index.php/install/wizard/installDb/ that reads as follows:
This error was caused due to an unexpected difficulty in fulfilling the user request. The most likely cause of this error is a crashed or error’d CGI script or program. Please verify that the program is properly compiled and/or operational and carry out any necessary debugging. If you are not responsible for this resource, please send a bug-report to the address listed below describing your problem. Please include in the report the date, time, your e-mail address, the website on which this error occured and what you were attempting to do when this error occured. Your compliance is appreciated.
Tried various attempts with different variations (CHMOD 777, then 755, different .htaccess settings, etc.) but can’t get past this point.
I spoke with IXWebhosting and they have newer servers with PHP 5 that they could migrate my account to, but I feel like I have too many domains to risk losing anything in the migration process. But I so DESPERATELY want to use Magento for a new client’s shop I am trying to set up!
