Magento Install on GoDaddy shared host – Helpful links tips n tricks

Magento Instal on GoDaddy – vers 1.7x

This Article and the following is really only for use by other techies out there in cyberspace who may need some extra help and tips based on my successful instal of Magento shopping Cart on a GoDaddy Host.

It is technically not recommended by the host GoDaddy.com but I can at least say that it can be done with perseverance, patience and tweaking. Some of the difficulties encountered in the instal are also applicable to any server setup so dear bleary eyed frustrated techie late night visitor – welcome and hope you find something useful in my instal notes.

GoDaddy FAQ- and issues

“No input file specified” error upon Magento installation on GoDaddy shared host

Yes we heard the first time and got the note from the headmaster and his prefects -  “oh we don’t really recommend you instal on a Godaddy host”

Computer nerds slogan – if in doubt keep going, keep trying – he who perseveres wins in this game.

Ah well I am nothing if not resilient and wanted to go ahead and set Magento up any-whoo even just to lay my curiosity at rest and examine the install process for myself to get a feel for the difficulties within.

So I was not the first to try this of course and there are several places one can explore the solutions. None of them are foolproof so you will definitively need to keep at it as I mentioned in previous Magento article .

Beware of the delays in the php ini file resolving as it take a while for these to propagate – the .HTACESS is all good and is responsive early immediately.  I love me a .htaccess file for that reason.

Known Issues

PHP5 ini file

HTACESS rewrites

The Browser – ‘of course’ the detectives sidekick said,

Aha! this is the tip you may be looking for  – try  this tip!! change browser when you do all the . php5.ini and .htaccess rewrites stuff – just to check its not related to Firefox or caching or some sort of browser thing like that. I found as a final resort the browser change did the trick to get the instal.php file to work .But yes do everything else too please.

777 issues – in directories and subdirectories var and tmp etc

TIP! Check all your other sites on same shared host – they may alter if you change the php settings and they use it. And your clients may not think its so much fun.
