Hi everyone, I was following this guide:

But actually i got cut to the half of the guide… Looks like the server its down… So I’m thinking i miss some steps… Actually I prepared the domain to point to a specific folder and then i got to start the installation of the prestasho but i’m gettin stucked with some errors that look like permissions missins:

Recursive write permissions on files and folders: ~/config/ ~/cache/ ~/log/ ~/img/ ~/mails/ ~/modules/ ~/themes/default/lang/ ~/themes/default/cache/ ~/translations/ ~/upload/ ~/download/ ~/sitemap.xml

PHP parameters: Mcrypt extension is not enabled

Thats all, any help are welcome :D
