Getting Angry Now - Installation Issues

Ok, I’ve been trying to do this install for 2 weeks now.

Finally I found a guide to install Magento in Ubuntu but now that I’ve downloaded the newest version the “Continue” button on the first page of installation doesn’t work.

The javascript doesn’t seem to be working.

How do I fix this? Why is this product so hard to install? And why don’t you guys provide a VM image as a basline for new users?

Keep cool, if you check the source of the install page, and check the path to javascript files, are they ok ?

Where do I find the source of the install page? Just what the browser spits out at me or do I actually go find a php file?

ctrl+U in firefox, look for files lines beginning with <script type="text/javascript\"

src="{{secure_protocol}}://{{secure_host}}:{{secure_port}}/magento/js/prototype/prototype.js"

That is the path in the first line of JS.

Is this normal?

this is not, if you found this in your output source, i have no time to investigate more right now, but did you check if you have the right php installed ?

Hi, i’ve been developing Magento locally on ubuntu starting from Edgy and now on Gutsy, didn’t encounter any specific problem with the distro. I would think that the problem is with missing uploaded files or corrupted db setup.

Do you have SSH access to your host? Could you start from scratch and tell me what is the first problem during installation you get?

Thanks.

I could do a fresh install of Ubuntu and give you SSH access to do all this for me smile

Then I could make the Feisty VM Available to all users once it’s working.

Does anyone have a detailed set of instructions
for setting up Apache2, PHP5, MySQL, and Magento in a Linux environment
the way that Magento needs the system to be configured?

I guess that if, you asked the above question,
you may have found some kind of problem
in installing the whole thing by yourself.

May I suggest a popular solution to the above
[for NET (NOT-Extremely-Technical) people, like me rolleyes]
which is a software called XAMPP.

There are other solutions, of course,
and everybody is welcome to suggest
his/her own preferred one,
but this XAMPP is what I use, thus this is what I suggest.

From the XAMPP frontpage:

“Many people know from their own experience
“that it’s not easy to install an Apache web server
“and it gets harder, if you want to add MySQL, PHP and Perl.”

“XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution
“containing MySQL, PHP and Perl.
“XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use -
“just download, extract and start.”

This is a free, open offer by a non-profit project.
Find it at:  http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

I have installed it in my Win XPro box and
it works good with Magento.
Many others, as per our forums’ postings,
have used the XAMPP Linux version and,
it seems, they are happy, too.

Try it by yourself and later…
report here the results, for everybody to know smile .

Note: THIS SW IS MEANT ONLY
(as the XAMPPs themselves warn about it)
for LOCALHOST ENVIRONMENTs
on YOUR OWN LOCAL MACHINE
NOT for ACTUAL INTERNET SERVERs.

P.S.: Obvious to say but… to be said:
I have no connection whatsoever with XAMPP:
I am just a happy user of their SW.

Hi ubuntuUser,

I finally managed to create a VM image of Magento.
When I’ve created a torrent file I will post it in this forum in a new topic and also in this topic.

ubuntuUser: Quite frankly, you are not qualified to be installing Magento.  You would be doing a great disservice to your customers by attempting to do so.  Either learn how to use the tools properly, or hire someone who already does know how.  Don’t expect others in the community to do it for you.  I can’t believe the arrogance displayed in your posts, expecting to have a pre-built VM image made?  Are you kidding?  And expecting other members to SSH into your machine, for FREE, to do this kind of work for you?  That is simply not realistic.  I would encourage you NOT to use tools like XAMPP/WAMP, simply because it allows you to remain ignorant.  Now, setting up systems like this is not trivial, but it is not terribly difficult either, especially with all the automation Ubuntu provides.  You need to sit down and take the time to learn the internals of Apache, PHP, Mysql, Zend, Ubuntu, etc. and then you can begin to work with things like this.  Of course you can post your specific problems here, and people will try to help you, but just don’t expect everyone to do the work for you!  That is all, I do hope you learn enough to become a contributing member of the community at some point.  Good luck!

Wow that was necessary…

Anand - if you can provide the VM that would be awesome.

And the part about providing SSH access was a joke - keep your pants on.
