The e-commerce.

moving an oscommerce site to new server


Recommended Posts

I have just moved an Oscommerce site to a new server. It is something I have done several times before without any major problems, but this time it's a nightmare :(


The first problem was that the site could not pick up the database at all. I traced this to the fact that it just wasn't picking up the define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'); (and password, usernames etc) entries in the configure.php file.


I couldn't work out why (after checking config files of successfull installations) so I hard coded the db server, user,password etc into includes/functions/database.php.


This did the trick and everything worked fine ...until making payment via Worldpay - where it doesn't seem to communicate back to thesite properly so no order details are written to the admin database (the thank you message also has a couple of lines of German - don't know where that came from!!).


Any ideas? Are these two problems related and if so what should I check for?
