install problem

Jan 3, 2012 at 2:05 AM

Trying to use the web installer, keep running into this exception on the "Insert Data" step (note: I tried this with the 'StarterSite' checked and not checked):

Ok so I edited the GeographicData.sql file so the web installer would succeed. Now I'm getting this exception when I try to start the site:

Would it be possible to get a SQL backup file for a new/clean store? I really would like to test this out on my server.

Thanks for trying our solution.

  • The first erorr is due to the fact that we inject a lot of GeographicData. In a future release, we will increase the timeout and add an option to import a subset of the whole geographic data.
  • The second error doesn't seem to be related to the database. This error is generally caused by a missing assembly. Could you verify that MVC 3 is correctly installed, if not the application will throw this error. 
    How did you install Magelia WebStore ? via the MSDeploy file found on the download section ? with Web Platform Installer, MVC 3 is a dependency.
    By the way, we will have to find a solution to throw a more explicit error :-)

If you want, you can also test our solution from our platform :

Ok - I installed MVC 3 and rebooted the server. 

I noticed the web.config has a few "%" signs in some of the settings; is the installer supposed to replace those with actual values?

<layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">        <conversionPattern value="%date [%thread] %-5level %logger [%property{NDC}] - %message%newline" />       </layout> 

      <runtime applicationTierId="c586c552-a4b5-4e1c-b3cc-2c0e7ff2561d">        <fileProvider physicalPath="%MageliaCommerceMediaPath%" urlBase=""/>      </runtime>

Here's the exception I'm getting now:

It is normal to have % signs of web.config. It is used by log4net to log message.

I had a look at the code, the only cause I can see is that you use Windows authentication instead of form. Normally, the Web.config should contains the following node :

    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="~/Authentication.aspx" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" name="WebStoreAdminAuth" />

We don't support Windows authentication.

Normally, WebPI installation should configure the application for you, how did you install the binary ?



Jan 5, 2012 at 4:46 PM


 <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="~/Authentication.aspx" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" name="WebStoreAdminAuth" />
      <deny users="?"/>
    <membership defaultProvider="AdminMembershipProvider" userIsOnlineTimeWindow="5">
        <add  connectionStringName="MageliaWebStore"
              type="Magelia.WebStore.Admin.Web.Security.AdminMembershipProvider" />

I created an empty website on my server (""). Then I installed the Web Deploy package and MVC3. I was able to import the .zip. It wanted to create a (virtual ?) directory in my "store" web site called Admin - I copied all files in the Admin folder to the root web site. Is that the problem?  Should I just delete everything and try again? Some of the documentation show 3 different sites ("medias", and something else) -- those sites were not created - are they part of the latest release?

Also, can you give some pointers on using the web service(s) to create a catalog/product selection/add-to-cart page?

Thanks for your help!!

PS - if you want to remote into the server please let me know via private email.

Everything seems OK for the authentication part.

I've got another idea :-) After you modified the GeographicData.sql did you replay the whole setup ? it looks like there is no seller and/or no association between seller and culture.

Could you run the following query :

use Magelia_WebStore
select * from magelia.seller
select * from magelia.SellerCulture 

By default, Seller should contains 1 rows and SellerCulture 2 rows, is that OK ?

I will send you via email a clean database backup with all the geographicData. Hope that will correct the problem.

oups, I didn't answer to all your questions.

medias, extranet, services was website for older version. it's not required anymore.

We are currently writing documentation. Services documentation should be publish in few days, and a sample website will be released in few weeks.
