    After installing the compser i run the magento file
    In last windowi click on install button it shown me all the modules were installed upto 98% in console in last it showing. Installing configuration ….text is showing and it didnt process .

    • You should check permission of apache (httpd) to know whether it can write your magento folder or not. In Window 7, you need to run achache (httpd) as administrator. Try installing from the beginning after you finish checking.

      Hope that helps.

    This design is steller! You certainly know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more
    than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
