The e-commerce.

oscommerce download is corrupted


Recommended Posts

I think I may have had the same problem when I downloaded oscommerce-2.2ms2


For some reason, it is named oscommerce-2.2ms2.tar.tar , instead of oscommerce-2.2ms2.tar.gz


So, I renamed it (not sure if I needed to but I did) to oscommerce-2.2ms2.tar.gz


Use the following command: mv oscommerce-2.2ms2.tar.tar oscommerce-2.2ms2.tar.gz


It is gzipped, so you'll need to unzip it with the gzip command from the unix/linux command line:


Use the following command: gzip oscommerce-2.2ms2.tar.gz


Which will then uncompress it to a tar archive, so you'll need to uncompress the tar archive in order to get a folder with files:


Use the following command: tar -xvf oscommerce-2.2ms2.tar


I hope that helps. I just thought I would include the commands since I didn't know how saavy you are in unix.

Or you can unzip/untar all in one step


tar -xzvf file.tar.gz or sometimes you'll see file.tgz. Same thing.



Everything's funny but nothing's a joke...
