Problems With Magento Installation

1 08 2010

Problem 1. Installing MCrypt on Mac
Mac OS X comes with pre-installed PHP which needs to be switched on and most likely updated to the latest version of PHP which is simple enough however installing MCrypt is a major pain. After spending 2 hours on this, I think the best thing to do is to use MAMP instead. Comes with Apache, PHP and MySQL.. SWEET!!!

Problem 2. Can’t log into admin
So Magento is installed on the localhost and now I can’t log into admin..

There are lots of workaround like changing the Varien.php file if you google this however they didn’t work for me so..

Please uninstall and make sure you reinstall Magento on instead of http://localhost/
