Magento Geek Post!

So, I am a sucker for Magento Commerce software. In the past it has been a real bitch to install though, and has eaten up plenty of my time. I’m also one of the dorks who get yelled at a lot because…. wellllll… I LIKE dreamhost! I think, so far, it has worked well with my needs. I’ve been a customer with them for several years, and have no complaints yet really.

Anyway, In the past, it’s been hour after hour of trying to get Magento to install on dreamhost for my own nefarious reasons. There was tears, there were swear words, there were furious posts on magento message boards and pleas to Dreamhost support. There was always success in the end, but at my expense… let me tell you!

Well! Cry no longer, my friends! I read the coolest tutorial and used the coolest instructions and was able to get my mom’s new online store to install within MINUTES. That’s ALMOST as fast as it takes to install wordpress.

Impressed!
