The e-commerce.

Help Needed...My store isn't working anymore!

Dead Composers

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


Just began properly exploring oscommerce in order to open a record label shop front. It was all going really well until I tried to edit the text titles of some header boxes using the file browser in the admin area. My browser now says:



Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in /homepages/6/d98259334/htdocs/catalog/includes/languages/english.php on line 7


I have put the file back as it was before this error occured but still my browser displays the same problem.


// manufacturers box text in includes/boxes/manufacturers.php

define('BOX_HEADING_MANUFACTURERS', 'Manufacturer');


// whats_new box text in includes/boxes/whats_new.php

define('BOX_HEADING_WHATS_NEW', 'What\'s New?');


To get this to screw up I'd changed 'Manufacturer' to 'Artist' in the second line. Line 79 in my browser is actually the bottom line, which I didn't alter.


Any help in rectifing this would be gratefully recieved. I'm currently stuck with this problem which means I can't move on.


Thanks in advance,

Sounds like a case of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. Do you have any ideas how to put this right?


Sorted (sort of!)


Just download a fresh version of OS Commerce and replaced the languages folder with the default settings. Just got to reconfigure EVERYTHING now! :(


No more File Manager for me!


Thanks for the swift advice Bobby....
