Just installed v1.3.2.4 on GoDaddy after giving up on 1.0 on GoDaddy last year due to performance reasons. 1.0 ran intolerably slow so i opted for GoDaddy’s “Quick Shopping Cart Economy” at the time.

1.3.2.4 is still laggy, but considerably faster than 1.0 was on the same host. I’m impressed with performance gains and will give this a go…

Thanks for the initial writeup John. The file manager trick was a nice tip. I was extracting with a php script running a shell command before.

If anyone can suggest a host that runs magento with great speed at comparable pricing to GoDaddy’s Deluxe Unix hosting ($7/month), im all ears…

Cheers,

Q

You could try Bluehost.  We’ve run a staging server there before and it seems to work pretty well, although a bit sluggish sometimes.

I have also changed the file permissions!

I would really like to use this product.
I thought of using a competing program, but I’ve grown weary of searching through the forum trying to find a answer to what seemed to be a simple Matter.
I thought of using go daddy’s solution but it wasn’t what I was looking for!
The enterprise version is just way over priced for me to consider as an option is there something in the middle? Something with decent support that won’t cost me a lot? something scalable perhaps?
I’m really frustrated It seems that everyone will take your money but not willing to give a solution nothing against anyone I’m just on a deadline and I need to get a viable solution for my shopping cart needs I will buy the installation guide!
I first need to start the installation process I feel you guys have a great product I would just like to be able to use it!

I’ve come to the conclusion that GoDaddy and Magento don’t mix.  I’ve been trying to work with them for 4 months now and while I can get it working for a while, I get weird characters from time to time, as well as lots of “Internal Error” message.  I was perfectly happy with GoDaddy’s great tech support, but the headaches that I got with Magento made me reconsider everything. 

So I finally (last night) switched to SimpleHelixThe difference is dramatic.  For about $80 more a year ($200 for a shared account) my installation works 100 times faster.  I’m sure there are some trade offs, but being only into it for a day I haven’t found any.  (if anybody knows of some let me know).  As a developer not having to run Magento on my local machine to get things done is just wonderful!

So my best advice to anybody is to switch your hosting from GoDaddy.  While it’s great for some things, Magento has such a heavy need when it comes to disk I/O that it’s really worth switching.  Also I think that there is something about GoDaddy’s setup of MySQL that isn’t working right with Magento, but I’m no expert there.

Followed All instructions to a “T” This is what I get:

*
o Url “http://domain.com/new/” is not accessible
o Error parsing body - doesn’t seem to be a chunked message

On this page: /index.php/install/wizard/config/

I hate GoDaddy so much!

I hate GoDaddy so much!

I have to say, it’s been about a month now since I switched to Simple Helix and what a surprise.  Besides the one-click Magento installer their support is off-the-charts.  I stayed with GoDaddy for years, simply because when I needed something, support wise, they were really good at handling it. 

Simple Helix’s support beats GoDaddy’s hands down.  I get an answer to questions in minutes instead of hours.  They always have somebody online and they really know their stuff.  I was going to use my hosting account for staging, but moved my development there because it’s faster than on my local machine.  The old adage “you get what you pay for” really applies to them.  It isn’t that much more than GoDaddy’s deluxe account but boy is it an improvement. 

The only drawback for me is getting used to cPanel.  Some of it is a little frustrating at first, especially when you’re setting up a lot of email or ftp accounts, but I can live with that.

Excellent topic guys.

I am still struggling with the host for database connection on godaddy.

I followed John34 instructions but I can’t find the host on phpmyadmin as he suggested.

So I am getting database connection errors. When I login with phpmyadmin I get in without problems.

When you create the database make sure you check the direct access box if you are accessing the database from outside.

Thanks John, this was a major help!  I had to install Mage on Godaddy’s network for the first time this evening.  I am used to working with a different network, but the client insisted on using Go-Daddy. 

Thanks again!

I have started the installation of Magento but after the website details screen, hitting continue got me to a page with the below error:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘Warning: simplexml_load_file() [<a href=’function.simplexml-load-file’>function.simplexml-load-file</a>]: /home/content/a/l/e/alertmalta/html/app/etc/local.xml:1: parser error : Document is empty in /home/content/a/l/e/alertmalta/html/app/Mage.php on line 524’ in /home/content/a/l/e/alertmalta/html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/functions.php:246 Stack trace: #0 [internal function]: mageCoreErrorHandler(2, ‘simplexml_load_...’, ‘/home/content/a...’, 524, Array) #1 /home/content/a/l/e/alertmalta/html/app/Mage.php(524): simplexml_load_file(’/home/content/a...’) #2 /home/content/a/l/e/alertmalta/html/app/Mage.php(479): Mage::isInstalled() #3 /home/content/a/l/e/alertmalta/html/index.php(52): Mage::run() #4 {main} thrown in /home/content/a/l/e/alertmalta/html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/functions.php on line 246

Any page that I try to bring up I am getting the error.

Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks

I got the same error but I am not using GoDaddy. What else can I do?

To install on GoDaddy, do this:

....make sure you’re using Linux hosting (much easier)

1. Download Magento: Download the latest full install of Magento and unzip on your hard drive. This should give you a folder named /Magento. The files contained inside this directory are the ones you will want to upload to your root (or subdirectory if you prefer).

2. Set up MySQL Database: Log into your web hosting control panel and in the top row of tabs hover your mouse over Databases. From the drop down, click MySQL. Follow the instructions and set up a database. Make sure to use the latest version (I think it’s 5 at this time - there will be a selection for it on the right - choose 5).

Make note of your Username (also will be your Database Name, they are the same) and password. While your database sets itself up, move on to step 3.

3. Upload Magento: FTP the unzipped files from step 1 to your root or directory you want Magento located in. Remember, if you want it installed in root, don’t upload the folder /Magento (what you see when you unzip the download), rather - upload the files inside it (i.e. /404, /downloader, /app, etc.).  This will take a while to upload.

4. Edit .htaccess & php.ini.sample: For GoDaddy, you will need to edit these files as follows:

.htaccess

Click the check box next to the .htaccess file and then click the Edit button up above in the menu options.
Near the top of the code, you should see this:

############################################
## GoDaddy specific options

#Options -MultiViews


Remove the # in front of the word Options. So it should now look like this:

############################################
## GoDaddy specific options

Options -MultiViews


Next, you will need to tell GoDaddy where your install is. Still within the .htaccess file, look for this line of code:

############################################
## you can put here your magento root folder
## path relative to web root

#RewriteBase /Magento


First, remove the # in front of the word RewriteBase (if there is a # there currently). Second, if you FTP’d all your files to the root, then remove the word Magento. In the case you installed Magento to your root directory, the code should look like this:

############################################
## you can put here your magento root folder
## path relative to web root

RewriteBase /


If you installed it in a subdirectory, say /store, then that last line would look like this: RewriteBase /store

php.ini.sample

We need to a) rename and b) edit this file.

a) Tick the check box next to this file and then click Rename from the top row of menu options. Rename this file to php5.ini
b) Open the php5.ini file like you did the .htaccess file to edit it.
Add this line of code to the very bottom of the file (just to be safe, don’t leave any white spaces after it)

cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1

5. Pheww...almost there. Now we can install it.

Now go to the URL in your web browser to where you installed your Magento. So if you installed it in root, then go to http://your-site.com.
If you installed it in a subdirectory like /store, then go to http://your-site.com/store

6. Now you should be in the install area. Agree to the terms and then click Next. You should be on a page which asks you about your Database. Remember your database name and username are the same.

For Database Host, you’ll probably see the word localhost filled in there. That won’t work. To find your database host, it kind of sucks but here’s how to find it.

Go back to your hosting control panel (open in a new window or tab if not already). Hover your mouse over the Databases tab and click MySQL from the drop down. Click on the database you’re using for Magento and log into your database using your username and password for it.

Once logged in, you’ll see up at the top your server info. The one you want is the big long name. It’ll be something like:
yourDataBaseName.db.2356783.hostedresource.com

Copy that and then go back to your Magento installation. Paste that into the area where localhost was.

Fill in the rest of your info and you should be good to go.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good luck and if you need any other web hosting accounts or domain names, visit us at http://wpbloghost.com - especially if you’re looking to start a blog. That’s what we’re all about.

No working for me. Why? It show me No input file specified.

Just a quick note to those having trouble with their Database Server on GoDaddy You dont need the Long conflab name out of your PHPADMIN.  All you need is YOURSITE.COM as your Host.  Because whereever your Host is it is using your SIte URL.  For instance MYSITE is rayandlola.com so my database Host is rayandlola.com because that where the information is going.  If you use Filezilla or an external FTP uploader then Your Host Server is your Website URL.  Same thing.

Hope that helps
