So I am getting really confused and frustrated honestly on this whole process.. I have done this before using just xampp and then bringing in the installation files, but I think this way would probably be easier... The guide's that I read before contained a before and after of what to do.
Right now I keep restarting the process because I keep getting mixed up, deleting, reinstalling.
I am not sure if i'm missing a step where you are asposed to perhaps get rid of the Welcome web page and then do the redirecting?
I am instaling " bitnami-magento-184.108.40.206-0-windows-installer"
When I get done installing I get presented with the Welcome screen and then trying to proceed to use the tool that they recommend
This tool is also included for Windows. You can open the "Use BitNami Magento Stack" command prompt from the Windows shortcuts and run the following comand:
bnconfig.exe --base_directory "C:\Program Files\BitNami Magento Stack" --appurl /"
Now when I do the second command I get an error saying the base directory and app url is wrong. Looking into program files I find that there is no "Bitnami magento stack" so I went and searched bnconfig.exe and found it in "C:\BitNami\magento-220.127.116.11-0\apps\magento" I tried to install it from the folder, but nothing pops up on screen and nothing changes, so I figured I had to use the " Use Bitnami Magento stack" command prompt. Whcih I found like I said and I then with my little know how of CMD I figured it would look like
bnconfig.exe --base_directory "C:\BitNami\magento-18.104.22.168-0\apps\magento" --appurl /
I still got an error
Sooooo I'm kind of stuck here so I went and tried the manual way, also I tried going into the admin panel of magento becasue I know you can change urls there but didn't work and reinstaled and did the manual way..
So I went and did the manual way and opened up "httpd_prefix.conf file" and I'm using
This website by the way for the tuttorial
Alias /magento/ "/installdir/apps/magento/htdocs/"
Alias /magento "/installdir/apps/magento/htdocs"
So I look at this what I copied and pasted and well I look at my version
Alias /magento/ "C:\BitNami\magento-22.214.171.124-0/apps/magento/htdocs/"
Alias /magento "C:\BitNami\magento-126.96.36.199-0/apps/magento/htdocs"
And they both look the same excpt the one on the web site has # so I took that as thats what " Commenting" means so I did that and
Moved to next step because thats what it says and
"Modify the htaccess.conf file (/installdir/apps/magento/conf/htaccess.conf) to comment the following line
just like i thought a # was there so I did that and nothings changed worth a dammmmmmm
What do I DOOOOOOOOOOOO? I am to used to youtube showing me how to do things!! and theres no videos
