Okay, I transferred all the files to my server via ftp - as instructed.
I set up a file for one of my hosted domains - and installed the files into a folder named “magento.” So, essentially, my server file structure looks like /mysite.com/magento ... with all of the files within the installation download within the magento folder.
I set all of the permissions as instructed within the User Guide, and verified that my web host server is set for PHP5.
When I type in http://www.mysite.com/magento/ . . . . NOTHING. I get the dreaded “The Page Cannot Be Found” dialogue.
What am I doing wrong ??
