Hey,

I got the same issue with my fresh install on a new server. Could it be a bug in the new version?

Or perhaps it’s our .htaccess files doing some wrong redirecting?

Here’s a copy of my .htaccess file in case anyone can make sense of it:

DirectoryIndex index.php

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_URI} !^/media/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/skin/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/js/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond 
%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l

RewriteRule 
.* index.php


AddHandler application
/x-httpd-php5 .php
SetEnv DEFAULT_PHP_VERSION 5

- Jesper

This should help you. I followed the steps and I’ve not got it working on Windows.

You will also have a problem with the image upload but I’ve posted the solution on the forum so just search for it.

Thanks

Hey there,

I’m installing on a Unix host, so I guess my problem is different. Any one else with some good suggestions? smile

Hey, I had the same problem.  I had originally unzipped the download on my local machine and then uploaded all the files.  Here and there my ftp crashed or connection dropped.  I went back and made sure all the files got uploaded, but for some reason I was getting stuck in the same place as you mentioned.  So then I tried this, and it worked:

“upload the tar.gz file directly to your server and use SSH to browse to that directory and un-tar it:

cd /path/to/magento.tar.gz
tar -xzvf magento.tar.gz

Beats uploading all the files individually via FTP and helps ensure original directory structure and consistency. “

I don’t know enough to say if this will work for everyone, but it worked for me so I thought I would share.

thanks
khalid

After bashing my head against a wall for weeks with this issue, it turns out it mod_bandwidth!  Commenting this out in the apache configuration file resolved this issue for not only this install, but several other installs and application issues.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, or how to do this, you should probably have your host do it for you.  It only takes a second and actually resolves the issue.

Hope this helps.
