PHP problem "Help!"

Recommended Posts

If I go the following link I get a "No input file specified" error:

 

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

http://domain.com/catalog/index.php/cPath/22

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

 

But if I make some changes on the URL it works fine. example URL:

 

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

http://domain.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=22

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

 

The problem started happening when I moved to a new server:

 

the new server is running PHP version "4.3.3" and the old server is running PHP version "4.3.4".

 

What should I change on the new server?

Go into Admin > Configuration > My Store and set Use Search Engine Safe URLs to false. This setting is not needed anyway.

You say that setting is not needed? My partner says that Googe would not put us in their index with any kind of decent rank until he set that setting to true. Anyone else?

I have two stores indexed by Google and doing just fine. Neither has Search Engine Safe URLs turned on. This was actually a problem at one time, but the search engines no longer have a problem with URLs with up to two variables. osCommerce is designed to work with Google and all major search engines.

 

There may still be some minor search engines that have a problem with variables. If you depend on one of these for some reason, then you will need Search Engione Safe URLs. You will have to do some work to get this to run properly. This setting appears to be incomplete and abandoned by the core developers. If you do figure it out, please post the code for others to use.
