I was trying to install Magento on my localhost and while doing 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 Internal Server Error during installation of Magento on localhost.
Status: Solved, able to install Magento
I suggest checking the video that I recorded for step by step detailed instructions.
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.
