Magento Installation problems

Hello Everyone,

Today I’m going to tell you how to tackle different problems faced by the developer during the installation of magento.Magento Installation process is different for localhost & for online web hosting.In this article we are going to tackle basic problems as follows:

  1. Internal server error  - 500 
  2. Some extensions are missing like mcrypt,curl,PDO_MySQL.
  3. No input file specified (mostly projects hosted on GoDaddy domain) 
Problem No 1 : Internal server error  - 500
Solution : This problem generally occurs when we don't have correct permission on files during installation Magento Expects that Each and Every folder and File  with permissions 755. So to avoid this problem you need to change permission of Magento Folder and index.php to 755. Sometimes it is also required to change the permission of .htaccess to 755.

    Problem No 3 : No input file specified (mostly projects hosted on GoDaddy domain)
    Solution : A common error which usually comes up if you’re hosted by GoDaddy, is the no input file specified error.
    If you do not have Magento setup in the root of your server, make sure to add the following to your .htaccess file.

    RewriteBase /yourbasepath/
    Once that is verified, there are a couple things you can do to fix this, but we’ll start with the one that usually works.
    In your web root directory, there should be a file called php.ini. Rename this to php5.ini.
    If there is no php5.ini file. Create the file and upload it to your root directory.
    If that doesn’t work, add the following to the end of your newly renamed php5.ini file:

    cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1
    And if you’re still getting the error, add the following to the top of your .htaccess file:

    Options -MultiViews
    The first one usually does the trick. If you don’t see this file in there, then create a blank php5.ini file add add the line listed on the second suggestion.
    If all of the above has not worked, KEEP your changes, wait exactly 24 hours. Go back to youraddress.tld/downloader and try again. You may just be cached and for some reason it takes a bit longer then I was used to. Keep your chin up!
    If nothing above worked, call GoDaddy up and have them either rename this for you, or make sure you’re on PHP 5.
