Today I face a very strange issue while transferring a website from one server to another. The error was 'No input file specified'. After hours of debugging I found the following helpful and fix the issue

- Remove any #’s if any from RewriteEngine On and RewriteBase from the htaccess file.

Search for Options +FollowSymLinks and add the below right after it.

Options -MultiViews

- Check if the site is normal otherwise follow next step

- Look for any php.ini file and rename it to php5.ini

- If you could not find any php.ini file make a new file using notepad and save it as php5.ini and add following

cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1

memory_limit = 50M

post_max_size = 10M

file_uploads = On

upload_max_filesize = 10M

upload_tmp_dir = /home/content/55/6067155/html/tmp.
