No Input File Specified Error Hosted By Godaddy Magento Website

In the last week I have completed a website in Magento and then uploaded it on the client's testing server which is hosted on the GoDaddy, I was getting some strange problem only the home page was working and when I clicks on the category or any other links it shows No input file specified Error. After doing some research, I figured out that It is a common error with the Magento while hosted on the GoDaddy, which usually comes up if you are hosted by GoDaddy. You can solve this problem very easily just follow the steps given below:

Step 1. Look into the Magento setup directory where Magento is installed there should be a file called as php.ini.sample Rename this to php5.ini, If it is not there just create a txt file and rename it php5.ini and upload it on the root of the Magento installation now delete your browser cache may be it works.

Step 2. If it does not work add the below code into it

cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1

Step 3. If you are still getting the error open the .htaccess file and add the below code in it and save.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^.+.php$ /bogusfile

Note : If your Magento have not setup in the root of your server, make sure to add the following to your .htaccess file.

RewriteBase /your_base_path/

Step 4. If problem is still there add the below code into the .htaccess file

Options -MultiViews

You are done now clear the cache and check your frontend. If it is not working wait for the 24 hours it may solve your problem.

Thanks and enjoy the reading.
