Magento Installation Error (Errcode: 13)
Error in file: “C:\docroot\magento\app\code\core\Mage\Sales\sql\sales_setup\mysql4-install-0.9.0.php” – SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1 Can’t create/write to file ‘C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\#sql_2e8_0.MYI’ (Errcode: 13)
The mentioned error is the most frustrating one while trying Magento Installation on local host particularly in Windows XP environment.
Here is the solution, you obviously have some anti virus running on your computer/Laptop, just disable it while installing magento, you will have your problem solved.
