The e-commerce.

Shopping Cart Empty- FIX


Recommended Posts

Ok everybody,

This is related to the issue of the whole store working fine except for items not load in the shopping cart. I spent over a full day's worth of work trying to get an insight into this problem. I was surprised as to how many people were having that exact same problem.


In fact there is a bug report for it here :




Some mentioned in their posts that they couldn't find a fix for it for over a month. That sounded really scary. Then I came across a post which mentioned that this problem had to do with versions of PHP. Here's that post.




At the time I had php version 4.2.2 installed on my server, so after going through all the hoops, I installed 4.3.9 on my server ONLY TO FIND THAT THE PROBLEM PERSISTED.


Well, turns out the problem does not have to do with version(s) of PHP, and this is NOT a bug in OScommerce either (credit goes to my network administrator for working with me on this).


The solution to this problem lies in configuration of PHP and that "Register Globals" needed to be turned on.


Once that was done, Wallah items loaded and everything worked fine.


Hope this post can save frustration to many folks in this great community.
