Installing Magento 1.7.0.2 on a Godaddy Web Hosting Account

Updated: Sun, 07/17/2013 - 00:34

After reading about how difficult it is to install Magento on a Godaddy standard web hosting account, I decided to give it a shot. At first, I thought this would be a breeze, but I was amazed at how difficult it truly is due to all the files that have to be edited. This was actually my first time playing around with Magento and I was quite disappointed to say the least.

For years I have been using osCommerce and Magento is much slower because of the way the code was written. Therefore, if you are planning to run a Magento powered store on Godaddy, know that an economy web hosting plan isn't really powerful enough to handle it. Godaddy actually recommends a virtual dedicated or dedicated server for use with Magento, but that decision is of course up to you.

Either way, the video below proves that it's possible to install Magento (community edition) on an economy web hosting account from Godaddy even though many people say it's not. Please see the video below and the step by step written tutorial beneath it:


Can't view the video? Watch it on YouTube

Download the files below:

Magento download the one with the tar.gz extension (You will need to create an account with them if you don't already have one).

Try to download the tar.gz file because this way we can upload just 1 single file and then unarchive.

If you are on a Mac as I am, click Safari then preferences then General and untick the Open "safe" files after downloading option.

If using Internet Explorer check whether the files are automatically unarchived upon downloading. If they do get unarchived, adjust your settings so that the file remains archived.

Now download FileZilla because Godaddy's web based FTP client will probably timeout while uploading the file.

FileZilla this is the FTP client that I use in the video. If you use a different FTP client, Dreamweaver or other web development software it's fine.

Preparation:

Make sure your Godaddy hosting account is running Linux because it is one of the Magento requirements.

Begin the installation process:

Now log into your Godaddy account, go to the web hosting section and choose the account that you will be uploading Magento to.

Next (once on the hosting control panel), copy the IP address in the server details section because we will need to populate the host field in FileZilla with this information.

Now install FileZilla if you haven't already. Once installed, open FileZilla and paste the IP address from the server section in the host field.

Also fill in the Username field and Password field associated with your web hosting account and then click Quickconnect.

Once logged in, find the Magento file that you downloaded and double click it so that we move it to our web hosting account.

I used the web based FTP file manager that Godaddy provides to move, create and edit files. Of course if you're using Dreamweaver or another web development program, you can use that.

Create a PHP file to check your server's specs:

Now we create a PHP file name "info.php" and paste the code below into it:

<?php echo phpinfo();?>

Next we go to your store's web address and access this file by going to:

http://www.yourdomain.com/info.php

This screen will show the server specs for your hosting account. Check whether the servers meets Magento's requirements.

Unarchive the Magento file:

Now we unarchive the Magento file that we just uploaded by ticking the box next to the Magento file and clicking the Unarchive button (icon) -- we will be unarchiving this file into the root directory of our web hosting account.

After the file has been unarchived you will see a new directory which is named "magento" -- this directory contains our Magento installation.

After you have unarchived the files, you can delete the archived file if you'd like.

Move the Magento files to the root directory:

Since we will be installing Magento into the root directory of our web hosting account, we need to move all the files from within the Magento directory to the root directory.

You can do this by going into the Magento directory and ticking every file within it and then click move.

If you do not do this, people will access your store by going to http://www.yourdomain.com/magento/ rather than http://www.yourdomain.com/

If there is a prompt asking you whether to replace some files, click yes -- double check whether these files are of importance to you.

After you have moved all the files you can delete the Magento directory.

Configure your hosting account:

Next, we copy the contents of the php.ini.sample file that is in the root directory of our hosting account and paste the contents into the php.ini file.

You can paste this information beneath the last line of code in the php.ini file.

Also change the allow_url_fopen option in the php.ini file from off to on.

Edit the upload_tmp_dir from /tmp to the path of your web hosting account with the directories /media/tmp appended to the end. In the video I show you how to find this info.

You can find it by visiting your webstore http://www.yourdomain.com/info.php and look for a path that looks something like this: /home/content/y/o/u/yourusername/html/

You can also get this path by going to Godaddy control panel and in the server details section, look for the absolute hosting path section (you may need to click show details to view this section) and copy that path.

You will basically see that the path contains the root directory of your web hosting account. In my case it was html so the new path for upload_tmp_dir looked something like: /home/content/y/o/u/yourusername/html/media/tmp

Therefore, your ini.php file would look something like:

upload_tmp_dir = /home/content/y/o/u/yourusername/html/media/tmp

Also, you might need to add cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1 to the php.ini file.

Of course, if you get any errors during the installation processes, try to remove the cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1 line, wait a few minutes for the changes to take effect and try installing again.

In the php.ini file I turned zlib.output_compression from on to off, but you can leave it on if you wish. I basically turned it off because I feel the web hosting account isn't powerful enough to handle compression.

Afterwards rename the php.ini file to php5.ini

Next, we need to wait for the changes to take effect and this can take 10-20 minutes.

A good way to check is by accessing your info.php file again by visiting http://www.yourdomain.com/info.php and looking in the upload_tmp_dir section and checking whether the output reflects the changes that we just made above.

Next we tick the box next to .htaccess file and click edit.

In the ## GoDaddy specific options section you will see the line #Option -MultViews

While many say that this line needs to be uncommented, from my experience, uncommenting creates errors. So try to leave it commented.

However, if you do experience errors during the installation process, try to remove the # (hash tag) next to Option -MultViews and try the installation process again. 

Now in the section #RewriteBase /magento/

We remove the # (hash tag) and rename /magento/ to / 

We do this because in this tutorial we are installing Magento in the root directory. Of course if you are installing Magento in a subdirectory, you will want to rename /magento/ to the name of the subdirectory or leave it as /magento/ if that is the name of your subdirectory. 

Next we need to go back to our FTP manager and add the directory tmp within the Magento "media" directory.

Make sure that the tmp directory is writeable by ticking it and clicking the Permissions button (icon) -- make sure all the permission options in "Advanced Permissions" are ticked off and click ok.

Begin the installation process:

Now we begin the install by going to: http://www.yourdomain.com/install.php

If the installation wizard appears, we did everything correctly.

If you are getting a blank page with a "no file input specified" message, that means that either the changes to our php5.ini file haven't taken effect or our configuration is wrong.

As mentioned earlier you can try to comment or uncomment the "Option -MultViews" line in .htaccess or remove or add the cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1 line in php5.ini.

Create your MYSQL database:

Next we create a MYSQL database.

Go back to the Godaddy FTP manager and hover over Databases and click the MYSQL link.

Now we click "add one now" and populate the required fields.

Next we click "ok" and wait for the database to be setup.

Once the database has been setup, we click the actions button and then "Details" and you will see a popup. In that popup look for the hostname section and copy that URL and paste it into the host field of our Magento installation wizard.

Next fill in the "Database Name", "User Name" and "User Password" fields with your databases' information.

Resume the installation with the Magento installation wizard:

In the Web access options section I ticked off "Use Web Server (Apache) Rewrites" because I wanted search engine friendly URLs.

If you have an SSL certificate also tick off the box next to "Use Secure URLs (SSL)".

If you want the admin to run with SSL you tick off the box next to "Run admin interface with SSL".

For the "Session Storage Options" I have it setup as "File System", if you want the session data stored in your MYSQL database, you choose the "Database" option.

Of course with the "Database" option, your store might run slower if the database isn't properly maintained (optimized).

On the next screen you create an admin account for your Magento installation -- just fill in the required information.

Also read the Installation Guide which tells you which directories need to be writeable.

The URL to this guide is:

http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/magento-installation-cheat-sheet 

This guide basically tells us that the following directories and files need to be writeable:

  • var
  • var/.htaccess
  • app/etc
  • media and all the directories within the media directory 

Again this can be done by ticking off the boxes next to the desired directories and clicking the Permissions button (icon), and ticking off all the boxes within the permissions section and clicking ok.

Next click continue -- at this point, everything should have been installed. Copy the encryption key and hold onto it. Now go to the admin section by clicking the "Go to Backend" button and log in.

Image error fix:

Now when you upload images you might receive an "Internal Server Error" message when you try to view any of your product images. The .htaccess file within the "media" directory is causing this issue.

You basically want to edit that file by going to the Godaddy FTP file manager and ticking off the box next to the .htaccess file within the media folder, click edit and comment out the line:

Options All -Indexes 

Once commented, it should look like the example below:

#Options All -Indexes

Now click save and close.

Try to speed up Magento:

Note: This sort of contradicts what I said about turning zlib.output_compression off in the php5.ini file because by uncommenting the lines below, you are actually enabling compression.

Also if you have zlib.output_compression turned on in your php5.ini file, you don't need to uncomment the first line of code below:

Edit the .htaccess file by going to the Godaddy FTP manager, tick the box next to .htaccess file and click edit. and remove the # (hash tags) next to:

php_flag zlib.output_compression on

SetOutputFilter DEFLATE

BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html

BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip

BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html

SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary

Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary

Basically, you'll want to check your store's performance with compression enabled as well as disabled. From my experience, compressing data makes the server work harder and when there are limited resources available, this can be an issue.

Now you should be good to go! Enjoy!

Ed requested that I add my php5.ini configuration so I did below:

Note: that you may need to update your upload_tmp_dir to the full path of your tmp directory as I mentioned in the "configure your hosting account" section of this article. I also left "zlib.output_compression" on because it's not necessary to turn it off. Also note that SMTP will differ from my example below based on your server settings.

register_globals = off

allow_url_fopen = on

expose_php = Off

max_input_time = 60

variables_order = "EGPCS"

extension_dir = ./

upload_tmp_dir = /tmp

precision = 12

SMTP = relay-hosting.secureserver.net

url_rewriter.tags = "a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=,fieldset="

;Only uncomment zend optimizer lines if your application requires Zend Optimizer support

;This file is for CGI/FastCGI installations.

zend.ze1_compatibility_mode = off

;PHP for some reason ignores this setting in system php.ini

cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1

At this point your Magento store should be up and running. Now if you'd like to customize your new store, you may be interested in my video which shows you how to install a new theme in Magento and if you'd like to look at some themes, you can check out my list of Magento 1.7.x.x themes over here.

actually i am a very new to this website stuff ,would like to try it myself, so learn a lots from your video, it was working perfect for me ,anyhow thank you for your video that really helps me went through all of the magento installation on godaddy shared server.
As you mentioned ,shared server is too slow for magento ,actually i am trying to move on to godaddy virtual private server, and i was using the same steps ,but it wasn't working on virtual private server ,it always show me PHP extension "mcrypt" must be loaded. on the magento installation wizard ,any help or do you have a video that can show me step by step to install magento into godaddy VPS thanks a lot !!

First off thanks for stopping by and I'm glad my video helped you. Magento is a resource hog and a VPS is definitely a good route to take.

I was actually going to do a video on installing Magento on a private server, but that would require me to rent a server for a month and I haven't decided if I'm willing to do this LOL. I do have a dedicated server now, but I can't play around with it because it's currently occupied by one of my websites.

See the main problems with private servers is that they have basic configurations. Godaddy shared hosting servers are configured by Godaddy so that they are compatible with various applications because we don't have access to the server's system files on those plans.

Installing mcrypt isn't too difficult, but you need to do it through SSH. You can use PuTTY which can be found here:

http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Once you have connected to your server through PuTTY (you need your IP address,user id and password) you need to switch to root user by typing:

su root

then type:

yum install mcrypt*
yum install mhash*

and answer y to the prompts.

then enter:

yum install php-mcrypt*
yum install php-mhash*

Answer y to the prompts and then you will want to restart the server and you can do this with:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

I don't know if the path in the command is correct on your server so you can also restart through your Godaddy control panel by clicking request power cycle in the support section.

Also remember to modify the php.ini file as well and maybe the httpd.conf file.

The php.ini file on a VPS is typically located in:

/etc/php.ini

and

httpd.conf is typically in

/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

or you can use "locate httpd.conf" in ssh to find it.

Also, so that you can upload images, remember to set your folder permissions so that they are writeable by Magento.

Good luck and if you run into any other issues, just let me know.

Please post the entire php5.ini file in its entirety.
Danny's picture

I added the contents of my php5.ini file in the article. Please note that some variables require different values based on your server's configuration which is why I was hesitant of adding the file contents to the article.

Hi Danny,

Every link clicked takes me to the Internal Server Error page. Even /admin.
Kevin's picture

Followed the directions completely and got to the LAST step of adding the product. When trying to test the category by clicking on Test Cat, I got Internal Servor Error.

Please Help!

Since you managed to get that far, I wouldn't be too worried if I were you. Based on the error, I can only assume that something is wrong with your .htaccess file. Make sure that the configuration on that file is correct. I think it has something to do with the URL rewrites, so again, make sure that the file is correct. To do this, I would just replace the contents of the existing file with the contents of an unedited Magento .htaccess file and follow the steps over again.

If that doesn't work, check your php.ini file again. Other than this, I can't see it being anything else as long as you are hosted with Godaddy because we are all pretty much setup the same way with them.

Completed installtion but images are broken and to solve that, as per your tutorial, i could able to find Options All -Indexes to comment, i have installed magento on Godaddy Ultimate-Linux Hosting Package.

My Php5.ini file is as bellow:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
[PHP]
;; NOTE: installed/managed by puppet on hostingcms02

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About php.ini ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior. In order for PHP to
; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'. PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory. The
; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overridden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
;
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple. Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future.
;
; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
; directive = value
; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from FOO=bar.
;
; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or M_PI), one
; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an expression
; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), or a quoted string ("foo").
;
; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and parentheses:
; | bitwise OR
; & bitwise AND
; ~ bitwise NOT
; ! boolean NOT
;
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
;
; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after the equal
; sign, or by using the None keyword:
;
; foo = ; sets foo to an empty string
; foo = none ; sets foo to an empty string
; foo = "none" ; sets foo to the string 'none'
;
; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a
; dynamically loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension),
; you may only use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.
;
;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About this file ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This is the recommended, PHP 5-style version of the php.ini-dist file. It
; sets some non standard settings, that make PHP more efficient, more secure,
; and encourage cleaner coding.
;
; The price is that with these settings, PHP may be incompatible with some
; applications, and sometimes, more difficult to develop with. Using this
; file is warmly recommended for production sites. As all of the changes from
; the standard settings are thoroughly documented, you can go over each one,
; and decide whether you want to use it or not.
;
; For general information about the php.ini file, please consult the php.ini-dist
; file, included in your PHP distribution.
;
; This file is different from the php.ini-dist file in the fact that it features
; different values for several directives, in order to improve performance, while
; possibly breaking compatibility with the standard out-of-the-box behavior of
; PHP. Please make sure you read what's different, and modify your scripts
; accordingly, if you decide to use this file instead.
;
; - register_globals = Off [Security, Performance]
; Global variables are no longer registered for input data (POST, GET, cookies,
; environment and other server variables). Instead of using $foo, you must use
; you can use $_REQUEST["foo"] (includes any variable that arrives through the
; request, namely, POST, GET and cookie variables), or use one of the specific
; $_GET["foo"], $_POST["foo"], $_COOKIE["foo"] or $_FILES["foo"], depending
; on where the input originates. Also, you can look at the
; import_request_variables() function.
; Note that register_globals is going to be depracated (i.e., turned off by
; default) in the next version of PHP, because it often leads to security bugs.
; Read http://php.net/manual/en/security.registerglobals.php for further
; information.
; - register_long_arrays = Off [Performance]
; Disables registration of the older (and deprecated) long predefined array
; variables ($HTTP_*_VARS). Instead, use the superglobals that were
; introduced in PHP 4.1.0
; - display_errors = Off [Security]
; With this directive set to off, errors that occur during the execution of
; scripts will no longer be displayed as a part of the script output, and thus,
; will no longer be exposed to remote users. With some errors, the error message
; content may expose information about your script, web server, or database
; server that may be exploitable for hacking. Production sites should have this
; directive set to off.
; - log_errors = On [Security]
; This directive complements the above one. Any errors that occur during the
; execution of your script will be logged (typically, to your server's error log,
; but can be configured in several ways). Along with setting display_errors to off,
; this setup gives you the ability to fully understand what may have gone wrong,
; without exposing any sensitive information to remote users.
; - output_buffering = 4096 [Performance]
; Set a 4KB output buffer. Enabling output buffering typically results in less
; writes, and sometimes less packets sent on the wire, which can often lead to
; better performance. The gain this directive actually yields greatly depends
; on which Web server you're working with, and what kind of scripts you're using.
; - register_argc_argv = Off [Performance]
; Disables registration of the somewhat redundant $argv and $argc global
; variables.
; - magic_quotes_gpc = Off [Performance]
; Input data is no longer escaped with slashes so that it can be sent into
; SQL databases without further manipulation. Instead, you should use the
; function addslashes() on each input element you wish to send to a database.
; - variables_order = "GPCS" [Performance]
; The environment variables are not hashed into the $_ENV. To access
; environment variables, you can use getenv() instead.
; - error_reporting = E_ALL [Code Cleanliness, Security(?)]
; By default, PHP surpresses errors of type E_NOTICE. These error messages
; are emitted for non-critical errors, but that could be a symptom of a bigger
; problem. Most notably, this will cause error messages about the use
; of uninitialized variables to be displayed.
; - allow_call_time_pass_reference = Off [Code cleanliness]
; It's not possible to decide to force a variable to be passed by reference
; when calling a function. The PHP 4 style to do this is by making the
; function require the relevant argument by reference.

By looking at your .htaccess file, it seems you are trying to edit the one in your root directory and not the one located in your media directory. The .htaccess file from within the media directory contains: Options All -Indexes
Suraj's picture

Thanks Dear, i modified .htaccess, one which is located in media folder. now its working well.. thanks a lot for your tutorial and amazing quick support.

Thanks a lot again.

hope i will help you one day. ..


Regards
Suraj Patil
Joey 's picture

Thanks for the tutorial. I followed exactly. For some reason, no products or images shows up anything on the frontend. Any ideas? thanks
Danny's picture

Yes, there is a problem with images not showing up. I address this issue towards the end of the video and in the above article. You basically have to edit the .htaccess file in your image directory.
Darren's picture

Hi Danny, thanks for the tutorial. I followed all of the steps above but I am constantly encountering errors this error "One or more of the Cache Types are invalidated: Blocks HTML output. Click here to go to Cache Management and refresh cache types." Do you have any fix for this?
Danny's picture

I personally haven't come across this error but I have read in the Magento forum that people are running into this problem. I don't know if you're doing a fresh install or not... Maybe changed your theme? Added modules? Are your folder permissions setup properly? Keep in mind that these are just guesses, but this is what I would look at first if I were in your situation...

Other than that, I did read some have temporarily fixed the issue by changing their cache settings. You can read the forum thread for yourself here:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/219407/
There seem to be other tips there that might be useful.
Darren's picture

previously when I encountered that problem it was a fresh install, but later I found out it's just some permission issues.

Btw, have you tried before EMthemes? I am currently encountering some problems with the theme, perhaps you can help me out if I were to offer you the theme files?
Danny's picture

I haven't tried EM themes but I did create a video on installing Magento themes which I haven't had a chance to upload to Youtube. I actually hope to upload that video as soon as I'm done with some other projects, but I don't know how soon that will be.

As for EM Themes, the name rings a bell, so I just Googled them and saw that they sell themes. Now I see why the name sounded familiar. Since it's just a theme, the issue shouldn't be too difficult to diagnose unless that theme itself is causing problems that would require a fix to the actual files. What type of errors are you encountering?
marie's picture

I had follow the all installation but I am getting the error message There has been an error processing your request
Danny's picture

I don't know if you managed to get to the part where Magento tells you "you're all set!"... If you didn't make it, I'd go over all of the steps carefully once again. If you did make it to this message, I'd make sure that everything is correctly configured and that all of your Magento files are where they should be.
Anna's picture

Hi. I have installed magento admin pannel on my go daddy account.

Every time I log into my magento admin pannel and try to upload a product image, there is no browse and upload button.

Someone help!
Danny's picture

Hello Anna,

Interesting question and it's a bit difficult for me to answer it since I don't exactly know how the installation process went. While I do believe that you did, but I have to mention it anyway, I recommend watching the entire video if you haven't because I go through the steps of listing a product in Magento.

Aside from that which internet browser are you using? I am asking because it might not be a server side issue. Try another browser to see if that helps.

If that doesn't work, check to see if there are other errors since maybe, you didn't install everything properly.
Robert Stutzman's picture

Hello, first off, thank you for taking the time to make this video. during your video I noticed that the godaddy.com has changed. When i go to the install portion, this is what comes up:

I triple checked everything. Unless something has changed on there servers I don't know what to do.
Danny's picture

I haven't checked Godaddy in some time, but I will do so when I get a chance. Therefore, I don't really know how much they've changed, but even if they did change I don't think the procedure would be that far off since it might just be a UI update or something like that.

From the looks of the errors, I would guess that your files are in the wrong location. First thing to look into is whether you moved the files to the correct locations. For example, if you misplaced the directories, you will get this error when Magento starts looking for the files because Magento uses paths to include files that it reads off. For this reason, when it can't find a file things go wrong since the code that is supposed to make it work, is missing.

Another thing to make sure is that you are entering the paths of your server correctly when you are required to do so.

Danny,

thank you for posting this great great video. even more, thank you for showing me the simple fix to the broken image problem. you are the only one i found that identified this specific issue and had a simple fix for it

JOELLE's picture

I have installed a fresh install on a Godaddy Shared environment. when I got
www.mysite.com it redirects me to www.mysite.com/index.php/install and that says no
input file specified but i manually go to www.mysite.com/install it goes to the
correct page to accept terms of agreement. The problem is when I accept it redirects me to
www.mysite.com/index.php/install/wizard/beginPost/ and that also returns
no input file specified

COULD YOU PLEASE HELP ME?
BEST REGARDS,
Danny's picture

If you are getting the no input file message, your setup is wrong. I actually mention this in the video and it's one of the biggest struggles that people are having with Magento. When I was learning to install Magento, it actually took me some time to figure out how to get rid of that error in particular.

Unfortunately though, I cannot pinpoint the reason you are getting the error because it could be for many reasons -- especially since I don't know which steps you took before receiving the error. Therefore, the best way to figure it out is by following each step in the video closely and making sure that you are installing everything correctly on your end. In addition to this, I mention in the video a couple of things that you can do to fix the no input file error.
Chirag Patel's picture

I keep getting a "[an error occurred while processing this directive]" error when I try and access the install.php fille. I have my Magento configuration as "/transpose/" instead of at the root. I modified the htpaccess file for rewrites to account for this opposed to what you had for the root. any ideas on why this is occuring?
Danny's picture

I can only assume that maybe somewhere along the line you entered the information wrong especially since my video focuses on installing Magento in the root directory. Best solution would be when installing, to try and make sure that you upload the Magento directory to your server and try to rename it from magento to transpose and then try to do a search and replace on the .htaccess file -- but that may be what you did already?

I also just did a quick search to see if someone else had these issues and it seems like it might not be related to Magento, but to file and folder permissions instead. Personally, I never came across this error so I wouldn't know for sure, but did you upload the zipped archive or did you unzip and then upload? I ask because your permissions may have changed with the latter.
Chirag Patel's picture

Danny,
Thanks for the response. I kept doing some Google searches and came up with some other things.

1. GoDaddy recently updated their Apache from 2.2 to 2.4. Not sure if that causes problems with htaccess or they say that you have to change any "include virtual..." to "include file.." in all html files. Not sure if this is the problem.

2. I came across the file permission issue also. I have changed all my file permisisons to what is recommended. Folders are 755 and files are 644.

This was working great on my local drive. I unzipped on my Windows machine and then ftped everything over. The directory structure did not change.

I will try a fresh reinstall tomm where I upload the zipped archive and try loading that.

Thanks!

Chirag
Danny's picture

I didn't realize that Godaddy upgraded to Apache v2.4 which is definitely interesting to say the least since there have been some minor changes made to Apache that can give people problems due to old configuration in their .htaccess files.

I know someone else mentioned some upgrades on Godaddy but I haven't had a chance to really dig into them so this is the first time that I am looking closer at things.

Now while I am not entirely sure that the .htaccess changes are causing the "an error occurred while processing this directive" because I've never really experienced this issue, it sound like it could very well be what is causing your problem.

So I just downloaded Magento again to find the lines that need to be changed so that I can show people how to do it.

First off, here is the link from the Apache site which explains what has changed:

https://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/upgrading.html

Note that I haven't tested the changes I am about to post, but I believe this should fix things -- if not revert back to old configuration, but please let me know if it helped so that I can confirm that these changes helped.

Oh boy, does Magento have a lot of .htaccess files...

In the root .htaccess file, change these lines:

Order allow,deny
Allow from all

to:

Require all granted

In the rest of the directories such as: 'app' , 'downloader', 'errors ', 'includes', 'lib', 'pkginfo' and 'var' change .htaccess lines:

Order deny,allow
Deny from all

to:

Require all denied

If I missed any files, feel free to let me know.
Dru's picture

I have a number of issues at the moment.

First, the new php5.ini file is not being updated when I bring up the info.php file I have deleted all information and re-upload three times, and still noting. Also I noticed that the original php.ini fill is not contained with the zip, or gz file.

My info.php below even with a php5.ini file on the root

Configuration File (php.ini) Path /web/conf
Loaded Configuration File /web/conf/php5.ini
Scan this dir for additional .ini files (none)

Thanks
Danny's picture

The php.ini isn't included in the zip and you wouldn't want it included because it's better to have a php.ini that is setup for your server. From what I can recall, Godaddy php.ini files have some custom values in them which is why you'd want the original file...

I know some of my readers have accidentally deleted their original php.ini files so this might have happened to you as well. If I were you, I'd try to get Godaddy to restore the original php.ini file.

Are you seeing the upload_tmp_dir and cgi.fix_pathinfo variables change? What do you see showing for these variables?
Dru's picture

Nothing is changing Below is my php5.ini file, also I noticed that when I go to edit under the goDaddy FTP manager it says false before displaying text and before it saves the file.............I have come to the conclusion that goDaddy,

cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1

memory_limit = 128M

I see you mentioned that Godaddy's text editor may be giving you errors... Have you tried creating the php5.ini file on your local computer and then uploading it? I would try that. You can also try downloading the existing php5.ini file to your local computer and opening it with a text editor to see if your edits are doing anything to the file.

Godaddy also created a help article with tips on what to do if you don't see the changes taking effect over here:

Danny,
I have created the file on my computer and upload with a FTP client I have also killed the processes over a dozen times.

Interesting... I wish I knew the answer then... From my experience, when you drop the file into your root directory, Godaddy picks up on it. Now I might be mentioning this a little late since my server's configuration seems to be a bit different from your, but at one point you mentioned a directory /web/conf/ which is where you stated that your php5.ini file is being read from.

Do you see these directories? If you do, try looking in there for the php5.ini and try editing that file. I know I have a hosting plan with a company other than Godaddy and the file structure of the server is a bit different and my php.ini isn't located in the root. Which is why I think Godaddy might have a similar setup on certain hosting accounts.

If that doesn't work, I'd contact Godaddy about it because maybe there is something going on with the configuration of the server.

After a few days of frustration with Godaddy Shared hosting, I decided to try my luck at bluehost.com. They have mojomarket place and it got installed in 5 minutes.

One caveat with my godaddy account was that I had several sites there in wordpress and drupal. They all worked, but I was never able to install Magento to a sub folder.

I agree that installing Magento on Godaddy can be a pain. In fact, I do recommend a couple of sites in this article that also offer quick installation similar to the way that Bluehost does.

Of course I am not saying this because I want people to leave Godaddy... I actually have been using them for years so I am somewhat of a dedicated customer. It's just that it would be nice if Godaddy added a Magento quick install option on their hosting plans similar to the way that they offer them for WordPress, Drupal and other CMSs, but based on the recommendation that Godaddy makes, I think they'd prefer to see their customers install Magento on a virtual or dedicated server.

Then again, maybe I should be happy that Godaddy isn't offering quick installs since my video wouldn't be so popular if they did LOL ;)

I see your site is up and running so I assume you fixed the problem.

Danny,

First I would like to thank you for such a great site! and Second, for any assistance you can provide to my issue. I am using Godaddy Deluxe Shared Hosting and have successfully (I believe) installs Magento CE 1.8 to the root directory. Now for Domain1.com Magento seems all fine and good. But I cant seem to get a second store working on the same install correctly. I have domain2.com set up per Godaddy and directing of subdirectory as follow: Domain2.com ==> domain1.com/domain2

I am pretty sure I have the Magento backend configured right for a second domain store setup but I am having a helluva time getting the .htaccess and index.php right for the second store setup! Are you familiar with a multi store multi domain setup on a shared Godaddy server and specifically what the .htaccess and index.php file should actually look like to work? I have read well over 10 write-ups on this and actually now think I am even more confused!!!

Your help for a layman is very much appreciated!

Adam

Hey Adam,

I do see that you have Magento installed since the url you have your name linked to is pointing to it. As far as multi stores are concerned, I haven't really dug that deep into Magento but I guess one day I should. As for now, what is happening exactly? Is Godaddy not pointing to the subdirectory or is your Magento installed wrong? When you go to Domain2.com where is it pointing?

Also do you want Domain2.com to be a completely different store? Or do you want Domain2.com to show just a section of your other store?

Personally I'd just install Magento in another directory and setup an additional database and then point the 2nd domain to that directory via these instructions: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/5399/hosting-multiple-websites-on-your-hosting-account but since Magento supports multi stores this may not be the most ideal solution.

Nice tutorial. I was trying to install Magneto on go daddy shared hosting. Was not able to install with given values.
if I want to install Magneto on sub directory instead of web root folder lets say webroot/myStore. What will be the corresponding values for php5.ini and .htmlacees file? Also where to keep php5.ini? in root or sub-directory like /root/myStore?
