I try to install magento for the first time.

  • I've created the database with the name "project"
  • in my C:\Zend\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf I added on the end:

    <Directory "C:\Zend\Apche2\htdocs\project">
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
  • in my ZendServer/Server Setup/Extensions: PDO_MySQL, simplexml, mcrypt, hash, GD, DOM, iconv, curl, SOAP are on

  • in C:\Zend\ZendServer\etc\php.ini I set:
safe_mode = Off ;<-- was set to off
memory_limit = 512M; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (128MB)

After step "Configuration" of magento installation (with Use Web Server (Apache) Rewrites enabled) I get:

  • Internal Server Error

My database is full of tables (that schould be ok)
My Zend Server shows:

27-Oct 06:55    6    Severe Slow Request Execution (Absolute)    http://localhost/project/index.php/install/wizard/installDb/    Critical Open
27-Oct 06:55    4    Fatal PHP Error    C:\Zend\Apache2\htdocs\project\lib\Varien\Db\Adapter\Pdo\Mysql.php        Critical    Open
27-Oct 06:55    5    Slow Function Execution    curl_exec        Warning    Open
27-Oct 06:55    5    Slow Request Execution (Absolute)    http://localhost/project/index.php/install/wizard/configPost/

What can be wrong?

perhaps it is because you wrote "Apche2" instead of "Apache2" on the configuration you added on the httpd.conf file? – Jhoon Dec 31 '10 at 14:36

While installing Magento; the page will redirect recursively and will show the default browser page. While checking the Apache access log the below error shows "GET /magento/index.php/install/ HTTP/1.1" 302 92706 This can be fixed using the Apache configuration. Open the file httpd.conf. Change the below lines:

<FilesMatch "^\.ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    Satisfy All


<FilesMatch "^\.ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Satisfy All

Do you have a typo?

<Directory "C:\Zend\Apche2\htdocs\project">

<Directory "C:\Zend\ApAche2\htdocs\project">

Here yes, on the server no. – czerasz Oct 27 '10 at 18:51

Does your server have access to the Internet? curl_exec is trying to request material from the web and is timing out...
