  • thank you very much. Thanks to your video (especially the ‘hosts tip’ I was finally able to install magento locally.

  • Awesome! Thank you for that easy install.
    Everything you did works and is easy pease lemon SQUEEZY!!!!!!!!!! WOOP WOOP!

  • mjdayetube: Good Question! This is most likely by design. I don’t know the exact answer. I guess only Roy or Yoav can answer this. It may be because they wanted to force the developers to use the real address, because then all the links are tied into this real address. It may also be because they wanted to get a real count of who is using what (notice their RSS feed can tell them who is using it and from what server address it is coming from).

  • I see. Thanks for this video 🙂 I’m still getting a ‘too many redirects’ error after a clean install and after making sure all extensions are loaded AND after using a custom domain name instead of localhost. /frustration !!!

  • If I recall correctly, try this: clear your browser’s cookies, then clean the var/sessions and var/cache folders of Magento and try logging in again. It apparently happens right after installation for some odd reason.

  • Thanks I tried that but no deal. For some reason, it keeps redirecting to index dot php slash install instead of install dot php

    any ideas?

  • Try with a different browser. I am pretty sure this fixed it for me when I encountered the same issue. However, if you want, you can try tsearching for ‘magento admin redirect loop” and see what you get.

    I tried to post direct links but it did not allow me to do so here.
