This question already has an answer here:
I installed Magento 220.127.116.11 community today.
I could not install Magento with the permissions I set reading the install guide.
(First the pictures did not show up on the install page due to permission problems, then the "continue" button would not click due to the permissions on the js directory)
I changed the permissions on the directories and files of: js, media, skin, var to 777. What should the permissions be? (I have 700 for directories and 600 for files of all other directories and files).
Then the install worked but got the
"Response from server is invalid"
and had to click:
"Skip Base URL Validation Before the Next Step"
I finished the install and every single page I go to gives me a 404 not found error.
Except the index.php.
Check out my page for your self
ifiluv.com/admin (does not work)
however adding ifiluv.com/index.php/admin
seems to work.
Also in the configuration changing
Use Web Server Rewrites : to NO
fixes a lot of the links and they work but they don't all work (like ifiluv.com/admin.
So I turned Web Server Rewrites back to YES. I read its bad to turn this off anyways.
Please Help! :*(
