I managed to move my magento store from my localhost to my live server, following this thread.

However, I have an unconventional folder structure how I run my main website and magento website. For instance,

This is the structure for my main website,


And I just want the magento system to be my sub 'website' as my webstore, so I keep all my magento files into bin/store/. And for this reason, all my images that I uploaded to wysiwyg/ don't work anymore - they are not displayed on screen anymore.

Also, the links with url rewrite are not working anymore too, for instance,


I will get,

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log. Apache Server at store.argenties.com Port 80

Any ideas how I can fix these two problems?

  • put your Magento installation in /bin/store and make your server look for /bin/store whenever it comes across http://subdomain.yourdomain.com/ Jun 11, 2014 at 15:37
  • I did set my server to look for /bin/store but still no good.

The images may have the path of your localhost. Please check in code view in wysiwyg editor what path your images have.

The Internal Server Error may be related to a wrong/incompatible setting in the .htaccess. Did you change anything there?

  • It is the problem from the live server actually. AVOID godaddy at any cost!

    So did you switch the hoster and now it's working? general note here: most of the shared hosters will have problems with Magento (performance, special settings)
