Need Help! Can someone take a look at this?

Hello,

 

I tried to add the pollbooth contrib, didn't like the way it was going and decided to remove it. I removed all the changes I made to the various files as well as the tables added to the database. When I go to my catalog this is what I get: "

 

Warning: main(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES/FILENAME_DEFAULT): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/bestbuyw/public_html/catalog/index.php on line 35

 

Warning: main(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES/FILENAME_DEFAULT): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/bestbuyw/public_html/catalog/index.php on line 35

 

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'DIR_WS_LANGUAGES/FILENAME_DEFAULT' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/bestbuyw/public_html/catalog/index.php on line 35

 

 

"

 

Can someone please help? I'm not sure what file it's looking for and as far as I know I haven't deleted anything?

 

My store is currently down because of this problem so any help asap is greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks

It is looking for you index.php file in your includes/languages/english (or what lang your are using) folder and cannot find it.

 

I have seen a lot of posts in the last week or so where someone installed a contribution or made some changes and killed a live site. Some thoughts

 

1. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP

2. You should have a secondary site to test changes on, this can be on your local machine or in a seperate folder on your server or both but you should never make changes to a live site without testing them first.

3. Did I mention BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP??

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??

I agree,

 

Installing a contrib without backing up was bad judgement. This was a pre-coffee decision made this morning. Definately learned my lesson.

 

But, as far as the problem is concerned - I have an index.php in my includes/languages/english folder. I even tried to use the original index.php file that I had backed up in the folder to no avail.

 

Any other ideas why the error may being caused?

thanks ozcsys,

 

I fixed the error by re-downloading the latest version of STS and over-writing the old catalog/index.php with a fresh copy. Seems to have done the trick. Weird, considering I didn't edit the file. Anyway thanks for your suggestion and I will in the future make sure to work with either backups or a staging server.
