Magento install error - Exception printing is disabled

Here is a known error which can occur when installing Magento:

There has been an error processing your request
Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.
Error log record number: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Here is the solution:

1. Navigate to the "errors" folder.

2. Change local.xml.sample to local.xml

3. You should now see a new list of crazy errors all over the Magento page - this is okay.

4. Open magento/lib/Zend/Cache/Backend/File.php and look for:

protected $_options = array(
'cache_dir' => 'null',

5. Change it to:

protected $_options = array(
'cache_dir' => 'tmp/',

6. Save it.

7. Now the final step is to go create a tmp folder in the root Magento folder.

8. That's it.
