  1. Admin panel states I have a properly configured installation, yet go to configuration/administrators, there is the dreaded pink box stating can't write .htaccess/.htpassword_oscommerce files to the web server, along with red radio dials indicating admins are not protected. Tried changing the admin passwords to invoke the checkbox allowing the password protection, there is no checkbox, just admin ID name and new password. Tried adding an additional admin ID name, got same no checkbox for password protection issue, How can this be remedied? Using the Mindsparx admin panel, is there a different location for password protection using this panel? Ran the site secure test on oscommerce-solution website, comes back as secure. This was all good as of 2/18/2016 7:30am ET sitemonitor/ hacker test reports. Approximately 1:00pm same date, was hacked by a paypal redirect to some hack with a domain origin of Turkey. I have changed back the payment direct hack, renamed the previously renamed admin file, working on looking at all other files. Is their something this hack could have done to prevent password protection? What would be a prudent course of action? Oh yeah, sitemonitor stopped link to payment processor (PP,) by changing back to correct payment address, does this allow payment processing to resume, are other actions needed? Thanks a lot Guys & Gals! Timmy C

    Header Tags SEO

    Modified my header.php file to get the account, cart and checkout buttons up out of the breadcrumb and up into the upper left of the header, placing the search function in their former location. To do this required placing a .gif image with the phone number on the header, with a store_logo.png image on the left; gives the same appearance, but unless done this way, the functions would not float on top as desired. My store_logo.png measures 407 x 102 pixels, with the .gif image at 951 x 131 pixels. Problem is when the "header tags SEO" statement is in the file, it breaks the grid system. Have tried to change some of the specified positions and sizes, but no joy! Here is the current header.php file: <?php /* $Id$ osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions http://www.oscommerce.com Copyright © 2010 osCommerce Released under the GNU General Public License */ if ($messageStack->size('header') > 0) { echo '<div class="grid_24">' . $messageStack->output('header') .

It's a bugger, I may have Jack work his magic when my frustration level gets to where the people around me fear life and limb!!!

    I get this error just when running the cron job of just the sitemonitor.php file: Status: 404 Not Found Content-type: text/html No input file specified. Got host on phone, they seemed to think it may have something to do with the php version, which I don't understand as sitemonitor_hacker_cron.php sends a cron job report and a file check report, just like it should. This tells me, I think that all the settings in admin-> configure must be correct, or either would not execute? I get inconsistent manual execution of sitemonitor.php when done from admin->admin and an emailed report when it does execute. overwrote sitemonitor.php from the install files. Timmy C

    @@Jack_mcs Jack... Got to where I have sitemonitor working from the admin console properly. Deleted the .txt files and replaced from the install package. As for the cron job side, have the hackers file working just as you engineered, problem is with the sitemonitor.php side. Keep getting an email reply after cron attempts to run: Status: 404 Not Found Content-type: text/html No input file specified. Figured has to be the instance of which configure file told in cron statement to look for? I have two instance according to admin/configure.Tried placing both just the instance such as 0 and then 1, no go, then added the instance=0 or 1 afterwards, as per the install instructions. The current cron statement is : php /home1/freddie/public_html/admin/sitemonitor.php?instance=0 The username and rest of path is correct as sitemonitor_hacker_cron.php is doing as it should. One question: in admin/configure, the box for log file location has just "sitemonitor_logs" is that giving the code enough path to find the admin folder where sitemonitor resides in? Admin folder name has been changed to protect the vunerable. I'm sure I missed something? Thanks a bunch, Timmy C

    @@Jack_mcs Jack... Set-up SiteMonitor on Tuesday, looked for the cron job email Wednesday morning, nothing there. Tried working with admin/ configure, then executing update in admin/admin. No problem getting the hacker check, but doing any kind of manual update on the 2nd or 3rd buttons, returns varied results. Will get can't write to sitemonitor_log file, can't write to reference_log file, tried deleting reference file too. Sometimes I get an update and an email is sent through, email is in mailbox, so that part is happy, it is the erratic update that is baffling. In the admin/configure I left settings as they were went first opening, changing just the email addresses. log file directory has just sitemonitor_logs. if I try and add any more path to it sez can not be found, so I assume it was right from the start. My admin was renamed before installing, does that cause issues? The only other change I tried in admin/configure, was adding the full web address to the adim directory box, once update is done, the box clears out. Any clues? Timmy C

  12. Jim... no good. Would it possible to add this line to the jquery.css file, how would bm_categories_accordian.php understand and comply?: .ui-state-default c, .ui-widget-content .ui-state-default c, .ui-widget-header .ui-state-default c { border: 1px solid #777777; background: #000000 url(images/ui-bg_inset-soft_75_000000_1x100.png) 50% 50% repeat-x; font-weight: normal; color: #ffffff; } added a "c" to the .ui-state-default where they appear. I got to thinking, if I knew what the heck I was really doing, and I really don't! it would be a neat feature of the accordian contribution, to be able to inherit the styles, of say, the box headers, or even if there was some way when the contribution is set to true, in the admin, you could set the color/style of the accordian button by specifying a link to an image. Would it be difficult to make it so? To me just seems cleaner, and possibly less confusing to have the column buttons not match the other buttons found throughout the store, as most other buttons deal with navigating to the payment grab.

    Customer Information Not Passing to Paypal

    Steve, Thanks for the info... In talking with the Paypal MTS guys, it is one of those where you might have to contact several times until you get info that is useable. Last guy finally came across with explaination. Paypal can only process dollar amount & include shipping and/or sales tax when customer information is sent over to Paypal; Without, all Paypal displays is the dollar amount of sale. Interesting, even though order has been totaled with shipping, Paypal strips shipping. Seems if an amount is sent over, It should not be modified by Paypal? Paypal guy claims, even with Paypal selling preferences set to add shipping, unless there is customer data sent over, Paypal will not add shipping and/or sales tax. I am going to install the add-on you suggested, and see what happens. I do have the all Paypal Profile items set correctly, Paypal guy went through settings and concurrs. The return URL the checkout_php was there and correct. Timmy C
  25. run into an issue. when passing a completed order over to Paypal, all customer information doesn't make the trip, resulting in just the dollar amount of purchase (less shipping amounts,) on the Paypal page.
