    Thank you very much.

    I spent a week to install on the VPS without success. But, when reading your guide, I finished in just 10 minutes.

    Nice post although command line installation is much more faster and customisable.
    And there is a request can you make a post on magento migration from one domain to another.
    With all its components and data.

    Hello, If you go to you’ll see Welcome to Magento’s Installation Wizard! You can tick “I agree to the above terms and conditions.” But when you click the Continue button nothing happens, it’s as if the window freezes. The host is a Linux server with PHP Version 5.4.36, Apache Version 2.2.29, MySQL Version 5.5.40-cll Any thoughts? I’ve contacted the people controlling the server but they have not responded as yet.

    The only issues I had with this guide were:

    1.the location of the apache config

    “$ sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/default”

    was not found. I found the file at

    “$sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf”.

    The Directory section did not exist at all for me, I inserted it below the “documentroot” line (not 100% sure this is the correct location).

    2.The other issue is in the Magento configuration. It comes directly after fixing the write permissions. I am getting an error “php extension mcrypt must be loaded”. I fixed this by:

    “sudo php5enmod mcrypt”

    “sudo service apache2 reload”

    “sudo service apache2 restart”

    HHHmm Not sure about those 777 permissions? Is there a way to not have to do that?

  7. jpadilla says:

    Hi, magento is rewritable for this reason your files should have permissions 777 and owned by the user the web public domain, not the user ROOT as this would generate update problems, editing and viewing the frontend
