When i try to install magento 1.9 on my local web server (bsd, nginx 1.8, php5.6), i get a 404 error. I navigate to http://192.168.1.102/magento/ which brings me to http://192.168.1.102/magento/index.php/install/ and results in 404 Not Found (nginx/1.8.0). I meet all requirements, magento-check.php tells me all is ok (except mysql, but i have the latest version installed. probably has something to do with the shell_exec command in that file). I also copied all the files for sample data and imported&ran the script to create a sample data database. and created a magento user for that too. All files are rwx accessible to the owner (me) and the nginx WWW userGROUP.
What am i missing here?
404 on nginx = wrong configuration or incorrect rewrite.
without your config no one will be able to fix it.
Yeah, figured it might have something to do with rewrite. You need my nginx config file? Anything else (php config, enabled modules, etc.)?
