  1. Download and install Xampp from here: https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html The version I used was windows with php 8.1.12 It will install in the directory c:\xampp In c:\xampp\htdocs create the directory “catalog” Download the latest version of OSC4 from here: https://www.oscommerce.com/ Once downloaded unzip the files to c:\xampp\htdocs\catalog Start the xampp control panel and start Apache, MySql & Mercury In xampp control panel click on MySql admin tab – this will open xampp PhpMyAdmin where you need to create a new database and password. In your browser, navigate to localhost/catalog – This should start the installation process for OSC4 Initially the installation will fail due to a couple of services needed as follows: First PHP GD: See this link for the solution: https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/how-to-install-php-gd-in-xampp/ Second PHP Extension intl: See this limk for the solution: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33869521/how-can-i-enable-php-extension-intl The installation may fail again when trying to install the database due to password issues – If so you may need to hard code your database password into the catalog/admin/includes/configure.php file at around line 52 The installation should now continue and complete (unless I forgot a step / adjustment somewhere….) Ok so now you can go to the browser and using localhost/catalog open your new website. BUT….. More changes are required to enable your access to your Admin / Backend as follows: Firstly from a post by @pandrei a change needed to: xampp/htdocs/catalog/admin/includes/local/configure.php and remove extra slash in these constants: define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '//oscommerce/store/admin/'); define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '//oscommerce/store'); Change to: define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '/oscommerce/store/admin/'); define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/oscommerce/store'); You can now navigate to localhost/catalog/admin but the login will fail, as the Mercury email programme needs to be set up as follows: First make sure you have an email account and password set up (I created a gmail.com email account just for this purpose) Then you need to configure Mercury to send mails, there is lots of info out there, but this link is one of the most straightforward: https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/how-to-configure-xampp-to-send-mail-from-localhost-using-php/ Next you need to make a change via the xampp mercury control panel, just a case of unchecking a box, which this link explains: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6809369/warning-mail-function-mail-smtp-server-response-553-we-do-not-relay-non-l You should now be able to login to your Admin / Backend – Simples! Disclaimer: As I did the install a few days ago I may have forgotten a step or change needed, so don’t blame me if it does not work or if you waste hours of time….. If it fails post here and I (or somebody who actually knows what they are doing) will try and help.
  2. @pandrei Should the oscdb work with a shop using php 5.3? When I first tried it there was an error due to the code in the web/index.php file not being 5.3 compatible. I changed that and the script ran for a bit but died. The server logs shows a bunch of calls to get images but they all have a good result. There aren't any log files in the oscdb/runtime/logs/ directory. Any suggestions on this?
  3. @osCommerce-OfficialI tried installing V4 onto my local wamp server. At the start of the install there was a message that said V4 wouldn't run when apache was on Windows. I went ahead and tried it and the splash page did show up but the admin displays a denied message. I asked Andrei about it and he said it should work but to post here if I couldn't get it going. I checked all of the listed requirements and they are present. Not being able to run this locally will cause a lot of extra work and delays for developers, at least for me. Is there a way to get this to work?
  4. i downloaded a paypal module. how do I install it onto the website version?
  5. Hiya, I am relatively new to all this but have got my site up and running. BUT - desperately want multi zone shipping so I can set weight prices for UK, then Europe, then world zone 1 and world zone 2. The problem is I have cleared the site before by accident having to start from scratch so really want talking through with baby steps as I am very nervous to change anything now its all working. can anyone help?
  6. Downloaded this add-on: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8002 I have never installed an add-on and I am not sure how to do this... Do I just replace all my files with the matching downloaded files? The instructions say something about "do a sql query". I just don't want to mess anything up. Help! TY
  7. Yes I am new at this. I am trying to install the MultiGeoZone MultiTable shipping module. I have to set up 4 shipping tables for four different geographic zones. I was directed to try the MultiGeoZone MultiTable module. I have the module, but I am having an issue installing the module. The steps are a follows: 1. Copy files from `catalog` to your osCommerce installation. 2. Import SQL file `_install_sql/INSTALL_v1.000.sql` to your DB. 3. Setup Pre-configuration from Admin -> Configuration -> MultiGeoZone MultiTable Shipping 4. Setup shipping Geo Zones (see "SETTING UP GEOZONES" section of the README file) 5. Install & setup module from Admin -> Modules -> Shipping -> MultiGeoZone MultiTable I have done step one and I think I understand (in theory at least) steps 3, 4 and 5. When it comes to step 2 - I believe I understand the theory (that it will give the Admin -> Configuration the ability to handle geozones). But I don't know how to DO step 2. I don't know what DB they are talking about. I don't know where this DB is. Finally, I don't know how to import the SQL file "INSTALL_v1.000.sql" to the DB. Any and all help would be most welcome. Thank you David
