EASY INSTALL

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I started out thinking installing the OSCOMMERCE script would be way easy... just run http://www.......nl/catalog/install it didn't work..(as my server can't connect to it) so tried doing it manual.. the script and all are installed on the DATABASE...

 

now got the whole package on my server.... haven't got a clue how to get it to work properly as the INSTALL file is just to short to really learn how to install it.

configure.PHP.. messes my head up (it always does) but can't find any adtional info for it... as i recon thats the file to use for completing your installation?

 

it's probebly just the fact i ain't really a good webmaster but still worked with PHP before....

 

so can some please help me out with it...

 

THX already...

1. you need to set up a blank database on your hosting account using phpMyAdmin or a MySQL link in your web hosting control panel.

2. Upload the contents of the osCommerce catalog folder, but not the folder itself (unless you want osCommerce to be in a folder on your site e.g. http://www.yourdomain.com/catalog)

3. Once you've done those two things go to http://www.yourdomain.com/install and start the Installation procedure.

4. You'll need to know the name of the DBServer, usually 'localhost', also the name of the database you set up, your mysql User Name and Password.

Cookie_domain: something like www.yourdomain.com (or yourdomain.com)

Cookie_path: /

 

From another thread:

 

The dot in front of the domain sets the cookie "scope" which limits the valid subdomains for the cookie information. Remember, www.domain.com has www. as the subdomain! So, the most broad cookie scope setting will have the dot in front so as to be valid and accessible domain wide no matter if the customer is visiting forum.domain.com, store.domain.com, www.domain.com, or user.domain.com.

 

If a store owner were technically astute they could adjust the settings to be more specific for certain areas. As an example, the cookie path will determine the directory that the cookie is valid. So, if the store is installed at www.domain.com/catalog/ and ANOTHER STORE is installed at www.domain.com/catalog2/ the paths should be set accordingly.

 

So, cookie domain sets the main domain and any subdomains that the cookie data is valid. Cookie path sets the directories BELOW the cookie domain that the data is valid.

Hello,

I'm having issues. I've got the oscommerce loaded on our website www.nazwear.com/oscommerce but I just can't seem to get to the installation pages?

 

I received the program thru my hosting service via their application vault. (spiralhost.com) They told me oscommerce was configured and that I didn't need to setup a blank database as it was already installed.

 

I did get access to mystore and I've edited it with our store's specifics.

 

Please help me out at your earliest convenience. THANK YOU!

If it's already installed, you don't need to install again.

Or am I wrong? :)
