Hi, when it comes speed in answering questions, my hosts are slower than the 56k modem i said goodbye to last year!!!!

 

I am currently paying www.streamline.net for the honour of them hosting my site www.adexec.co.uk on a linux server.

 

I have copied the catalog file to my htdocs folder as specified in the instructions, I went to the install part and ticked auto config box.

 

This is the problem now:

 

If I enter streamline.net as my hostname then I get this error message:

 

The error message returned is:

 

Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES)

 

Please click on the Back button below to review your database server settings.

 

If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company

 

If I enter adexec.co.uk as my hostname I get this error message:

 

Can't connect to MySQL server on 'adexec.co.uk' (111)

 

Please click on the Back button below to review your database server settings.

 

If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company

 

What am I doing wrong? I read somewhere I need to upload a database, where do I get this database?

 

The site is due to go live and I still havent created the shop setup process yet so if anyone could help me then I would be eternally grateful and will offer 10% of the cost of a new laptop (at trade prices already so cheap enough already!!!)

 

Thank you to anyone who helps

my host explained to me today that:

is there anything i can do?

 

You need mysql to use osC so it is either change hosts/hosting package or use a different cart.

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!! You did backup, right??

is there a way to add mysql onto my hosting package without upping my package?

 

or could i host the store on one of my network pc's?

 

You need to talk to your hosting company and see what it would take to change packages. I find it hard to believe that you cannot get mysql from them and if that is the case you might want to think about changing hosts.

Now sorted thanks to an old post I found from 'Mibble'

 

I just had to copy all the information in the // define our database connection from the configure.php file in catalog/includes to the configure.php in catalog/admin/includes excluding the 'STORE SESSIONS' part and I can now get the admin screen.

 

Thanks to Mibble :-)

I'd change hosts if I were you.

Hope this solution helps anyone else out

The mysql server from streamline.net is not normally 'adexec.co.uk' . from memory, it is mysql2.streamline.net or mysql.streamline.net.

 

You can access you database for manual updating at http://mysql2.streamline.net/phpmyadmin/ for example.

 

You need to use the usename and password for the database, that should have been provided by streamline.net. Hope this helps.

 

When you go into OS commerce install, you will also find a register globals issue. You need to fix this before you can proceed with install.
