The e-commerce.

Common Error "failed to open stream"


Recommended Posts

We have a previous installation of oscommerce installed and working perfectly -- however after trying the current CVS snapshot we are experiencing the same error that several others are experiencing on this forum:












After installing the file, ensuring the database is set up and then going to www.yoursite.com/catalog/ the following error is displayed:


Warning: main(languages/english.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/yoursite/public_html/catalog/install/includes/application.php on line 28


Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'languages/english.php' (include_path='') in /home/yoursite/public_html/catalog/install/includes/application.php on line 28




None really, except the "include_path" seems to be different amoungst the various reports on this forum, and the line number is either 22 or 28.


If I edit the file application.php and provide the full path the the file languages/english.php then things work fine -- it falls over again later in the web configuration process.


Has something changed in the package that requires a path to be set? I can't see where "include_path" is set within the php files and suspect this may be the problem.


Any ideas appreciated, I will post any successful contributions.

are you trying to use the current cvs for production? if i understand correctly, not recommended.


i havent tried the cvs as i dont need the 'fun' associated with debugging something.


compare the configure.php files with others, also compare the installation files with ms2 and see how much they differ
