The e-commerce.

Problem with installation of osCommerce 2.2ms2


Recommended Posts

please... someone out there!!! Could anyone please instruct me how to install osCommerce.... :(

I've spent at least 30 hours of sitting and trying to install it. Is it supposed to be this hard to get it up and running??? :(


I've installed PHP5, MySQL4.1 and IIS 5. What's the next step? When I try to connect osCommerce to import my database, it just stop loading the page. So I don't know if the test passed or failed... :(


please guide me!!! :(

do you have the proper rights to permissions in iis? php5 has a few bugs with oscommerce, you should use php 4.3.9

did you read the knowledge base?

Uninstall php5, install php 4.3 or above. There are known issues with osCommerce and the new version php5.


Then, go to the Knowledge Base and follow the Installation instructions included there. It's a good guide.





Mibble must type faster than I do!

Well... I've done all the steps according to knowledgebase and I get an error: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client.


I'm using MySQL 4.1.7


What should I do??? :(

Problem solved! for you people who wonder how I solved:



-> 'some_user'@'some_host' = OLD_PASSWORD('newpwd');


and used the new password for importing the database :)
