Magento Shows No Product and Categeory

Magento E-Commerce Community Edition
It took me 20 minutes to figure out why the products and categories don't show up on the front page of the Magento e-commerce store.

  • The product has to be in stock, enabled and has positive inventory quantity.
  • Make sure the category is under the "Default Category"

It's important to make sure every configuration values is set correctly. Magento is a powerful e-commerce system. Without setting the values and configuration right, the site won't function correctly.

This is a simple solution for Magento shopping cart software. After install the Magento software on the server, it generates 500 server error.

The solution is to change the file permission for index.php file to 755.

That's it!
