Magento step by step installation on a Shared Hosting

  •  Download the zip archive from Magento website. Do not use the downloader version because its more complicated.
  • create a subfolder under public_html.
  • Set folder permission 755 to the public_html/subfolder
  • Unzip the contents of Magento archive into it.
  • Set correct file permission 644 to the subfolder/index.php
  • replace the contents of .htaccess file with this code. please substitute subfolder with your actual magneto installation foldername

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /subfolder/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /subfolder/index.php [L]
<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

  • make following changes to file public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Order.php at around line 325. This is not necessary but if you want Magento to send mail immediately without relying on Cron, you may do like this.

// $mailer->setQueue($emailQueue)->send();
