  1. Hello,
    i have been trying to get magento installed on my godaddy account for
    couple of weeks.
    i bought a theme off Envato and it was a one set install. lets just say the
    coder that made the theme can’t get it to install and says its my problem
    because it wont work and not there.
    i have fallowed your steps and done everything and it still wont work ­čÖü is
    there any way you can take a look or something.
    also great video!´╗┐

  2. Seems some things have changed since this video was created. The php.ini
    file doesn’t show up. You have to create it and clear out the web
    processes to get the server to recognize it. Even with all of the steps
    followed meticulously, I still am not able to get the install screen
    up….any chance of a refreshed tutorial here soon?´╗┐

  3. heyy man first of all thank you for taking the time to do this is helping a
    looot of ppl out there including a noob like me. So i followed your other
    video “How to Install Magento CE via FTP or cPanel” i did it through the
    filezilla and it didn’t worked out for me, did everything you did and
    nothing worked out, tried everything on the web and still nothing.

    I m trying this now everything is going perfect but thing is i m trying to
    install magento into a subdirectory on my father’s website for now to learn
    how to use it but my question is in the video you sended everything over to
    the root, and copy the file from the (php.ini.sample) to your (php5.ini)
    file at minute 13:50.Do do i have to do this backwards since i m installing
    it in a sub directory? or all i have to do is to change the (RewriteBase /
    mysubdirectory /) like you did in minute 19:17? Is there anything else i
    must change to install it on a subdirectory?

    please, i know this is a lot of questions to answer but i would really be
    thankful if you could answers any of these. I m trying to help my father
    with his business it would mean a lot to him if i could give his website a
    new look.

    thanks in advance man have a good week :D´╗┐

  4. Hi, I’ve tried following your instructions however I’m running into several
    problems. 1) there is no .htaccess in any of the folders mentioned in your
    comments or your video. 2) I keep on getting the error PHP extension
    “mycrpt” & “gd” must be loaded, even though I’ve already edited the php.ini
    file. Any ideas?´╗┐

  5. Hi how are you. Good job but it doesn’t seem to work for me, I set up the
    files like you did and when I want to install Magento (
    servername.com/install.php) I get a message like this: Fatal error: Call to
    a member function children() on a non-object in
    /home/content/54/10097854/html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Config.php on
    line 946 Would you by any chance now what that is ?? I have checked the
    system compatibility by magento-check.php file and it says everything’s ok.
