    Trying to install Magento, it looks to me that all of the requirements for magento are installed, but clearly they are not. I can not change the file permissions in the magento installation and I get the white screen.

    The Magento-checker shows it all, I think. This is the result I want. This is what I am getting.

    The patchshop is on a different server

    Any clue's

    First, make sure that you selected as php mode "php-fcgi" and that the "Suexec" checkbox in the website settings is enabled.

    Then edit the php.ini file and ensure that short_open_tag is set to on:

    short_open_tag = On

    Hi Till,
    I have done all of this, but still no good.

    I am not totally confident that the pdo_mysql extension has been installed properly, I have not been able to find a pdo_mysql 64bit RPM for SuSe 11.3 yet.

    What are the chances of a 'Total Screwup' if I do a full re-install of the latest version of PHP 5. ?

    Please add:

    short_open_tag = On

    in the custom php.ini field on the options tab of the website and click on save. Then wait a few minutes and try again.

    If this wont help, then please add a php file with the following content:


    in the farmsforsale webspace and check in the output if short_open_tag is on or not. The current probem is not related to pdo_mysql as far as I see.

    Good Morning,
    I have done this,

    I placed
    in a new file called php_info.php, also added it into the index.php page

    I am not sure where you want me to check output.

    Still no good.

    Backto pdo_php for a second

    I searched the server for all of the Magento Requirements:
    were not found, so, I installed mcrypt from Yast. pdo_mysql is not available in Yast, the only way so far that I have found to get it is in a full copy of php5

    Thanking you for your help here

    Call the php_info.php file in a browser; this will show you all your PHP settings.

    Good Morning Till,

    Yes, short_open_tag = On

    Well I am baffled, it all looks ok to me

    I notice that pcre.ini and simplexml.ini don't appear in the "Additional .ini files parsed" section, but are 'enabled' lower down on the report.

    Have the same php.ini content in ect/php5/ and the website.

    I have adjusted the php.ini in farmsforsale to reflect the php output from thepatchshop, remember thepatchshop is on a commercial server

    But it is still not correct.

    I have put a message on the openSuSe forum asking does anyone have Magento operational on SuSe 11.3 with ISPConfig 3, but no reply yet.
