Can anybody walk me through the steps how to successfully install Magento on my server? I'm not a technical geek type person so whom ever assists me which I gladly appreciated it will have to bear with me until I catch up too speed with the lingo and everything. Thanks.

      Hi, Magento can be a bit temperamental to install, you need to check with your hosting Co that their server has the correct server-side software to run Magento reliably. They should just be able to answer the question directly - other clients may already be running Magento on same host.

      Magento does provide a compatibility test file, you can upload this and then browse for it to see a list of compatiblity points.

      Bear in mind you'll need an SSL certificate on your server (extra cost) before you can set up a payment gateway. SSL gives you the padlock symbol in the browser address bar of https domains, without SSL your customers may be wary of shopping with you.

      Pukka I'm not sure whether you want to use Magento if you have absolutely no knowledge on CMS / web development. It's quite a complicated software. Maybe it would be easier with wordpress or joomla.
