    osCommerce catalog directory

    First let me say I am not a good source of technical information. I am sure other people are finding this question hard to answer. Not enough information. If you are on a shared server there is a decent chance you have access to cPanel. From there, File Manager should allow you access to your osCommerce files. If you are on a system that does not offer cPanel, you will need to give people more information about your server and osCommerce version. A good way to access your files is through a FTP client on your computer. Should work on most any server that is not set up on a local computer.

    2.3.4 - Recommendation for Payment Processor

    Forgot to add that Braintree allows you to log in and process a phoned in credit card online.

    2.3.4 - Recommendation for Payment Processor

    Depending on sales volume, you may find Braintree (a paypal company) will do what you need. Been using it for years on a modified 2.3.4 system without problem. Does not send the customer to a separate website to pay, integrates in the checkout_confirmation.php page. Think they refer to it as a "drop in." Presents as an app like Paypal does. Has it's own tab on admin/orders.php when looking at an individual order that was paid using Braintree.

    General thoughts about Add-On's

    osCommerce-Official Posted Tuesday at 11:58 AM We were able to restore access to the old osCommerce 2.x modules. They are located here: https://old.oscommerce.com/ They will be TEMPORARILY available in the read-only mode on this URL.

    20 reasons to switch to osCommerce. Reason 1 - Control

    So, you are saying that there are people currently working at osCommerce-Official who were involved in the original version of osCommerce?

    How to process payments via payoneer

    New owners of osCommerce name no longer allow any apps or addon for old versions on oscommerce.com. They took them off the website and said they would restore, has not happened in months. Can only assume they will not be restored. They have their reasons but I think very few actual users of osCommerce agree.

    General thoughts about Add-On's

    New owners of osCommerce decided you we should not be able to access them.

    osCommerce site and Forums update notice

    Appreciate that at minimum the v2x app files will be available via FTP. If osC admin is not willing to allow the complete v2.x apps section of their website to stay alive, why not allow someone else to take over the apps website as it was using a different server and domain name? As Hotclutch mentioned, it is not just the app files, there was important information about changes to those apps. It is understandable that osC admin does not approve of using osC 2.x, but I fail to understand why osC admin has/will eliminate what has been built by the community over so many years? Many of those apps will run on updated and community osC 2.x systems that do run fine on modern server software. It is hard to trust companies that do not support their old products, even if those products are obsolete. I use old computers. I use old cell phones. I use old cars. The stairway in our home is obsolete and would not pass building code today, we still use it. I use old IP cameras, I understand there are risks when using obsolete products. I have no expectation that support by osC admin would be active, archives are fine. A FTP site is not a good archive unless it will contain all descriptive text that went along with the files, all versions of the files, and is searchable so people can find what they need, as the old apps section was.
  11. Very much appreciated Tom. phpMyAdmin is easy for me The most important thing people should remember if they edit the database (or any file) is to download a backup first!

    osCommerce site and Forums update notice

    I do hope that the archive of apps is made available again someway, sometime soon. I was caught by surprise by the disappearance. I do like the version of osC I am using, it is working to my satisfaction. I did try a beta install of v4 and found it complicated. Understanding that it is dated, I like the simplicity of osC 2.3.4, it is not stuffed with things I will never need. I would like to update/add a few things and now can not do that. I think it may be a good thing if the new owners would allow the archive be hosted separately, as rainton (thank you) is suggesting. I understand the new owner's claim to the right to do as they wish with this website since they apparently gave money for the osCommerce name. I do think it would be considerant of them to have offered access to the old system that so many people have put their time and effort into without asking for payment. I don't think those people were aware that someone owns their work given the openness that this website has had in the past. But, this is the way things often are. Far too many companies do not support old products in any way, or even keep documentation of old products available even though the products are still in use.
  13. Oops, I made a mistake. I may be running an older version of USPS Rate V4 and was intending to check if it should be updated. I see "ver R3.3" on my installed version, running osC v2.3.4. If 3.3 is not the latest USPS version, would someone be so kind as to post the latest download here? I noticed that this, and all the other apps, are gone. http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8327 redirected to https://www.oscommerce.com/info/8327, returned a cert error and then page not found. If you can help, please post here or message me. Was also going to install UPS soon but did not get there in time. Thank you!
  14. Thank you Smoky Barnable for bringing this up and making it so easy to fix!

    osCommerce v4 Beta 2

    I receive a 500 error every time I have installed. Looked in Metrics>Errors on cPanel and read: .... SoftException in Application.cpp:267: File "/home/ice/public_html/v4osCtest/index.php" is writeable by group Can't say I know what Application.cpp:276 is. I changed permissions on index.php from 664 to 644 and the install worked after that.

    Installation osCommerce v4 Beta 2 - No Admin Page

    An issue someone may run into is not enough storage space on a shared server. My first install failed due to this. The installed package with sample products on my shared server is 451MB.

    Installation osCommerce v4 Beta 2 - No Admin Page

    Thank you Hotclutch. I did not enter the same folder name (test in your example) but did enter a name (/shop) thinking the store would be located at /test/shop. Just re-installed leaving the install location as is and it appears to be working now. Also, it does not load painfully slow as the failed install did. I did get the 404 error message while installing. PHP-Version 7.4.27

    Installation osCommerce v4 Beta 2 - No Admin Page

    I had issues installing on a shared account also. Back end appears to be working but there is no front, customer, side at all. 404 page not found. Took three tries to get the install to work at all, first two froze and failed. Also, the back end appears to be very slow, taking quite a long time for each page to load. Quite a large package compared to osC2.3.4! Looks like there is much more added to the system than I would ever need.
  19. I hope some kind person will guide us on how to cure OldPete's issue. I also use what I assume is an older version of this addon. Has worked fine for me so I never gave it a thought. Do we need to upgrade or is there a way to change the code of this version so it will continue to work after USPS changes? THANK YOU to anyone who is willing to help!
  20. Hello, Hope this is the proper place to ask, I did not find a support topic for Categories Navbar Module. Just installed this in Phoenix v1.0.6.0 (php 7.3.18) and when installed, entire shopping cart goes blank. Dashboard is fine, uninstalled module and shopping cart is back. I found that when uploading, the instructions call for files to be placed in includes/languages/english/modules/navbar_modules which does not exist, only includes/languages/english/modules/navbar. Also, includes/modules/navbar_modules where only includes/modules/navbar exists. Tried making the new folders, app was not there to be installed. Any help? Thank you, Chuck
  21. I am having a problem with free shipping per product for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3. If the weight of a product is not an even number, no decimals, the free shipping can fail and charge the customer for shipping. I installed the module a few months back and when orders started for the season some people were being charged shipping when they should not. This would only happen with certain number of products in the shopping cart. 1 or 2 and shipping was free, 3 sometimes, and most orders of 4 or more were getting charged. I had shipping weights of 1.2 and 1.5 pounds on these products. The fix I found was to change all product weights to 1 pound. That works, but I would like to use fractional pounds, some of my products only weigh an ounce. I need to use a weight to be able to charge shipping for export orders. I did not try weights other than 1 pound. The problem seems to be that Free Shipping Per Product for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3 does not like to have fractional weights. If anyone can help with this I would sure appreciate it. - Chuck
