I was trying to install Magento on my localhost and while doing so I faced an error, a not so welcoming web page that said – Internal Server Error.
Of course, I was not happy. This is not the page that I would ever like to see when I am starting something new. I decided to solve this problem (had no other choice too) and solved it. Below I am sharing steps to solve an Internal Server Error during the installation of Magento on localhost. If you are not so keen on reading the blog post, you will like the video hosted at the end of this article.
Status: Solved, able to install Magento
I suggest checking the video that I recorded for step-by-step detailed instructions. Video is at the end of this article.
Start with PHP.ini file
Open php.ini file and look for ‘max_execution_time’ and ‘max_input_time’, change values for both to 1500.
Do not forget to enable curl extension.
Edit httpd.conf file
Open httpd.conf file and look for ‘LoadModule version_module modules/mod_version.so’. Look for # at the beginning and remove it. Removing # will uncomment this line.
Restart WAMP server
Restart wamp server, wait for W icon to turn green again.
Try installation again
Now, try to access the Magento directory again and SUCCESS!!
This solved my issue and I was able to access Magento and install it. I hope this will help you too.
