Newbie can't save or make any changes

Hi all,
I'm always hesitant to bother folks and try to figure issues out on my own but I'm at a complete loss. I've installed a fresh version as a git clone off of GitHub. I followed the instructions in the install text and went so far as to set the directory permissions to 777. The shopping pages seem to work but the Admin panel will not save any changes I make. One of 2 things will happen, after making a change (as an example changes the name of the store) (From the Dashboard->System->settings->general->store name) and clicking save, takes me back to the login screen and nothing gets saved. Changing other settings like those in localization and clicking save, nothing at all happens.
There is nothing in the logs to help.

I'm really looking forward to using this app because it looks great, but I need help getting past this issue please.

The storage folder must be located outside of your public_html folder manually and edit both config.php files' server paths accordingly. Folder permissions should never be set to 0777. Rather, they need to be set to CHMOD 0755 on a recursive mode. Files permission must not be changed.
