I am having same problem...first time iinstallation of magento for me...and I cant get past /index.php/install/
latest version magento-188.8.131.52-2015-04-30-12-49-08
Even after ticking agreed to the terms and conditions, the continue button stays greyed out?
I have googled and cant find an answer but am thinking maybe some permissions...???
try to re-downlaod you pack from magentocommerce.com then install it
I'm good now. I wish I could tell you what fixed it but I had my hosting company (godaddy) fix the problem for me. I'll say this though...
I think my problem had to do with the fact that I had a shared account and the folder I was installing magento into was not on the root domain. Although, it did install ok before I updated to the most current version of magento.
The guys at godaddy also used installatron to install magento, whereas I was using filezilla to upload the files.
Hope that helps someone else.
I think somethig is wrong with the 1.9.1 installation ever since they added the security patch to it on 5-1-15. I was able to install 1.9.1 prior without problem. Can't get past the grayed out continue button now.
Problem seems to be with the zip format only. I just tried with the tar.gz format and it worked great.
Your solution did the trick for me, nice quik fix...thanks so much
Sorry, I'm not very confident with ssh commands. I have a 'fresh' subdirectory housing a dev version of a Magento store. I need to change all file permissions according to the command line code above, what would I need to add to only include subdirectory files/folders?
