Hello,

First I’m completely new to Magento so I apologize if this has been answered, however I tried searching and found 100+ different
answers, but none of them seem to have made any difference.

This entire install is for a TEST site as myself and another person learn the ins and outs of this system (and as we setup a test e-commerce site, that this site will get mirrored into a production site.

Situation :

I have just completed a fresh install of the latest Magento install (1.7 I believe), and all is well except for one odd problem.

Here’s my install steps :

1) Create a subdomain on my GoDaddy host (linux), and create a blank database
2) Point the subdomain to /tw on my primary host
3) FTP the entire contents of the magento .zip’s /magento folder into the TW folder.
4) Wait for the insane amount of files to upload (11K files?!?! really? LOL ).
5) Set the /downloader folder permissions to 755.
6) Set the root /index.php to 655.
7) Hit the website and proceed with the install.
8) Point it to a newly created GoDaddy Db
9) leave the defaults for the install, wait for the Db to populate and install to complete.
10) When I click the ‘load frontend’ or ‘load backend’ both work.

However, if I load the backend, then load the magento extension manager, and then click the “Go back to admin”

I get a 500 Internal error. Here’s the problem…

If I browse to my test domain’s admin page as :

domain.com/index.php/admin

this works and brings me to the login screen

however, throughout the site it attempts to connect back to this URL but attempts :

domain.com/admin

this fails with a 500 Internal Server error.

I’m a little stumped as to why this is happening out of the box.

Any suggestions/help is greatly apreciated!

In case anyone else runs across this issue, here was my solution :

in the .htaccess file, follow all the other suggested changes for Godaddy (set the cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1 in the php5.ini file)

however when you set the RewriteBase EVEN if you put your install into a folder set your setting to :

RewriteBase /

For example, I have my install in a folder called tw, so you would think the folder should be called :

RewriteBase /tw/

when in fact this wasn’t working at all, changing it to :

RewriteBase /

worked.... go figure.
