No input file specified – WordPress adding an extra “/”

  • omnicommie


    I did a bit of searching for this topic and saw many instances and solutions. I wasn’t sure which one was the best for me.

    I just switched to a new host from my own (I was running OS X Server 10.4), and I have my site up with Dreamhost. It seems that internal links (individual posts, pages) do not work. Whenever I try to navigate to them via link it seems an extra “/” is added to whatever the loaction I want is. When removed, the links all work fine.

    I tried looking in the configuration, but I found nothing to change (that i could see.)

  • I’m also having a similar issue. I just upgraded from 2.1 to 2.1.2, and when I access http://mysite/index.php/, I get your error. The error, however, doesn’t appear when I visit http://mysite/index.php.

    This is a problem since the header link on my site points to the “ending /” version of my home page, not the version that works.

    I’m using Apache. Anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this?

    I would check your .htaccess file to make sure it’s properly formatted for permalinks. This sounds like a permalink issue to me.

    Thanks a lot thelazygeisha! I’ll check that out soon.

    I got the same pb and tried to check for the .htaccess.
    But in the basic installation as now there is no .htaccess file.
    Does it means I should prepare a .htaccess file , but what about settings ?
    Many thanks to anybody who can help.



    If your Permalinks are set to default, there need not be an .htaccess file.

    They are set to défault.
    I found the reason of the extra “/” which give the “No input file specified” error msg.
    I set the WordPress adress as “http://www.mysite.com/index.php” and the blog adress as “http://www.mysite.com/index.php”.
    The blog adress should be (default) only “http://www.mysite.com”
    The best is to leave blog adress in blank if it is not special url.
    Therefore there is no more error msg.
