Installing Magento from SVN

On Magento website, go to Downloads -> SVN. Current version is Magento 1.1. To svn checkout (latest stable):
svn checkout http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/branches/1.1
Create a folder in htdocs magento11 an checkout using a svn client (Tortoise svn for windows is really nice). If you have a webserver installed on your system, acces:
http://localhost/magento11/
Automatically you will be redirected to install: Make sure you have mod_rewrite enabled, and Allow override so Magento's .htaccess file can override some configs. 1. First step in installing Magento is to agree terms and conditions:
2. Localization (note: I can't seem to find UK Pound in the list):

3. Database connection and Web access options: Make sure you provide a valid account for MySQL.
4. Personal Information, Login Information and Encryption Key:
5. You are all set!
