Hi All,

I hit the following issue after input the DB connection information:

Url “http://shop.lifeabc.com/” is not accessible
Error parsing body - doesn’t seem to be a chunked message

I’ve checked the permission of the folder and it seems not related.

Could somebody give me some hints? Thank a lot!

Below are the reply from the hosting company:

Hello,

We checked the Magento script that you are trying to install, but could not find the reason for the error. It is possible that the error is triggered by some bug in Magento itself - the newest version (that you are trying to install) was released just 2 days ago.

You may try installing an older version. alternatively, you can contact the authors of Magento for more information about the specific error message.

Thank you!

Best Regards,
Support

Looks like the current release has a broken installer and some bugs

I managed to install it but using another method. Additon ‘index.php/’ after the base_url string. Then, while the page is reloading to the next phase, go into MySQL database table ‘core_config_data’ to edit the data for config_id 18 and 19 to the original base_url.

I am having the same issue, on a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server—does anyone have any ideas why this may be occurring? I can’t seem to figure it out.

Until this is fixed, you could try the following. Download the 1.0 release of Magento, and before you run through the web-based installer, upgrade it using the PEAR downloader to the latest release. That’s how I have been installing it (when I do it by hand), and also how our one-click installer does it. It works every time.

The list of SSH commands you’ll need is below.

Install Magento (with sample data) to a folder called “magento”

wget http://www.magentocommerce.com/downloads/assets/1.0/magento-1.0.tar.gz
wget http://www.magentocommerce.com/downloads/assets/1.0/magento-sample-data-1.0.tar.gz
tar -zxvf magento-1.0.tar.gz
tar -zxvf magento-sample-data-1.0.tar.gz
mv magento-sample-data-1.0/media/* magento/media/
mv magento-sample-data-1.0/magento_sample_data_for_1.0.sql magento/data.sql
cd magento
chmod o+w var var/.htaccess app/etc
chmod -R o+w media
mysql -u DBUSER -pDBPASS DBNAME < data.sql
./pear mage-setup .
./pear install -f magento-core/Mage_All_Latest
rm -rf downloader/pearlib/cache/* downloader/pearlib/download/* .htaccess.sample data.sql index.php.sample ../magento-1.0.tar.gz ../magento-sample-data-1.0/ ../magento-sample-data-1.0.tar.gz
find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

Make sure you replace the underlined database values with the correct info before copying and pasting this in shell.

Install Magento (WITHOUT sample data) to a folder called “magento”

wget http://www.magentocommerce.com/downloads/assets/1.0/magento-1.0.tar.gz
tar -zxvf magento-1.0.tar.gz
cd magento
chmod o+w var var/.htaccess app/etc
chmod -R o+w media
./pear mage-setup .
./pear install -f magento-core/Mage_All_Latest
rm -rf downloader/pearlib/cache/* downloader/pearlib/download/* .htaccess.sample index.php.sample ../magento-1.0.tar.gz
find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

Hope this helps.

This is a strange bug. I have WAMP 2.0b running on my PC at work, and downloaded Magento today and installed no problems.

Just got home and did the same but installed on 2.0 that’s been on my PC for a few months. This one has the above problem.

Hi, to install 1.0.19870.1, please edit app/code/core/Mage/Install/Model/Installer/Config.php on line 139, replace:

$client = new Varien_Http_Client($url.$prefix);
with
$client = new Varien_Http_Client($url.'index.php/'.$prefix);

changed line 139, but now im getting a 500 internal server error...............anyone? ohh

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

This suggestion by Moshe solved the problem for me --- THANKS MOSHE!  (of course I had another problem after, but that was solved by another thread on the server… had to reupload a file that was causing problems.)

Yay… finally get to use Magento!

This didn’t work for me.  It’s still saying I can not access the URL.  What else could it possibly be?

Url is not accessible - Unable to read response, or response is empty

I’ve been going round in circles with this with a clean install of version 1.0.19870.1
I tried the fixes in this thread. They didn’t work.

I then did a file comparison with the 1.0.19870 version (which I had luckily downloaded but not installed). Only 7 files different and one that seemed relevant to installs.

SO I took the Config.php file from the 1.0.19870 version - uploaded that instead of the 1.0.19870.1 version - and IT WORKED.

I’ve attached the file for anyone who didn’t have the previous version.
It goes in app/code/core/Mage/Install/Model/Installer
