OK, I was away for a week, and I was itching to get back because I knew the 1.0 verision would be out! I get home and the first thing I do is download and attempt to install.
I installed in a new directory path with a newly created DB and a new user with all privileges. We will call my path http://www.example.com/store.
Inside of my store directy I place the contents of the unzipped magento directory. It, <path>/store/index.php etc.
I run the installer, all is good. I get the two buttons at the end of the install for going to the frontend and going to the backend. I clicked frontend, the page appears but no products. I didn’t think this was strange since I didn’t install any data with this.
I click the backend button and get a 404 for /store/admin. Hmmm… Nothing too helpful in the error_logs. DB is correct and I did the connection test during the install.
I noticed this install didn’t open the pear window like the 0.7 install. So I nuke the store directory and the DB and user. I recreate the DB and user account and I download in downloader version of the installer. Upon running that, I get the following message at the top of the install.

Looks like this could be related to my problem. I checked my php modules and it has version 1.5.1 installed. Any ideas? Should I nuke my XML_RPC module and try for the installer to place it?
Is there any other new requirements that have been added since the 0.8.* or 0.7.* time frame? I tried installed with both https on and off.
