The e-commerce.

need help getting started...


Recommended Posts

hi everyone,


i'm just starting to set up my store online so i'm basically trying to figure out how all this works...


when i try to get to my admin, i get this message


Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket 'please_see_the_faq' (2) in /nfsn/content/mimoymima/htdocs/catalog/mimoYmima/includes/functions/database.php on line 19

Unable to connect to database server!


and of course that's the end of it... can anybody tell me how to make that work??


and one more questions... is it through my url/catalog/admin/ that i administrate and make changes to the site, or do i have to change the individual php files?


thanks for helping a newbie :blush:

Take a look at admin/includes/configure.php. The database info at the bottom is probably incorrect.


Some things are controlled in the admin. Some require changes to php files. Don't use the File Manager/Editor tool in admin (once you get in :) ). It messes up the code.


Welcome to osCommerce :thumbsup:

this is what it says at the bottom of configure.php


define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');


do i have to change 'mysql' for the name of my database?


thanks for the tips

This pathway doesn't look right, unless you have your osCommerce store in a folder called 'mimoymima', a level above 'catalog', which is a level above the root of your domain in 'htdocs'.
