Magento – {{base_url}} is not recommended [RESOLVED]

November 29, 2010 at 7:08 PM 11 comments

{{base_url}} is not recommended to use in a production environment to declare the Base Unsecure URL / Base Secure URL. It is highly recommended to change this value in your Magento configuration.

magento base_url is not recommended

After the fresh install of Magento we get this notification. Why we get this notification ? Its because we haven’t set up our base URL for both secure and unsecure and leave it as {{base_url}}.

Ok how do i get rid of this {{base_url}} is not recommended notification on my admin panel or what should i do to  get rid of this {{base_url} is not recommended?

1. Go to System -> Configuration -> Web. Click on the tabs Unsecure and Secure And give your Home page url as a Base URL instead of {{base_url}}.

Eg :

If you are on a localhost give “http://localhost/demostore/

else if you are on a production server hosted “http://yourdomain/” or

And don’t forget to add the forward slash / at the end of the URL.

2. Save you configuration and you can just find the

{{base_url}} notification has been removed from the Magento Admin Panel / back end.

By the Way, I also want to leave a note here if you have SSL installed on your server then use https:// instead of http://. If you don’t have SSL installed then use http:// for both secure and unsecure.

Hope this helps.

Cheers :-)
