Errors after installing Magento. Any ideas?


#1

Hi everyone, I just installed Magento, and after uploading everything and successfully adding a database, I cannot see the front end of the store. Only the backend.

Take a look: http://www.webdesigndeluxe.com/magento/

Anyone have any ideas? Also, someone mentioned that I would have to disable PHP safe mode in a php.ini file which I am not sure how to do so that would be helpful to so I can see if that works.

If you have any ideas why this isn’t working, any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

There are no solutions here. I don’t know what to do.

Go MagentoRoot/errors/

Copy local.xml.sample – and create local.xml @ MagentoRoot/errors/local.xml

or try this http://bit.ly/cAsHk4 with little more explaination

Do you have safe mode enabled or disabled?

Did you use a the sample data to install? another check to look at is there themes copy right on to the server if something is missing magneto can go haywire


#8

Basically all I did was simply downloaded Magento from their site (the latest version of course), extracted it on my PC, and uploaded everything into the /magento/ directory as is, to my server and then when it was finished uploaded I browsed to the folder, and the installation wizard displayed. I filled out everything including the database correctly, and it said successfully installed and asked to visit the backend or frontend. The backend works fine, but when I try going to the front end, I get that error. Have yet to see the main store front page.

Any ideas anyone?

As per above, is PHP Safe Mode Enabled? It should be disabled. What version of PHP is your server running?

Check off on this list http://www.magentocommerce.com/system-requirements all the PHP extensions that are enabled, and that aren’t.

You can get the info to check what is and isn’t enabled via creating a php file, say serverinfo.php with the contents:

<? phpinfo(); ?>

The one’s that aren’t contact your host asking they be enabled, or if you can place a php.ini file in your root directory enabling them/or via .htaccess.

@burningstonecold

Thanks so much for your reply. Unfortunately, I have no clue how to check if PHP Safe Mode is disabled and if I did I wouldn’t know how to disable it. Also, my hosting provider (GoDaddy) wasn’t a whole lot of help either so I would have to enable/disable everything myself which I am not sure how. If you could help me out maybe, that would be greatly appreciated :slight_smile:

I explained in my post how you can go about it actually :slight_smile:

Yup I already did that. I am getting an error saying I need a newer version of MySql although I am currently using the latest version. Unfortunately my hosting company says Magento is not supported on my shared server. Anyone know a reliable yet cheap dedicated server? GoDaddy is way to expensive.

You could checkout Siteground (http://www.siteground.com/magento-hosting.htm). I know somebody hosted with them and they haven’t had any major issues or problems.

It seems a pretty decent service for $6(USD)/mth.

I use web hosting from hostgator.com. And it works very well. I installed magento without any problems and it works well. :slight_smile:
