osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Install Error

I am getting an error when attempting to install the oscommerce.sql file.

I can plainly see when I open up my site with an FTP program that the files are all there however I keep getting an error stating that it cannot locate the oscommerce.sql file.

 

New Installation

 

Database Import

 

The following error has occurred:

 

SQL file does not exist: /install/oscommerce.sql

 

I have uploaded all of the files that were located under the catalog folder (I did not upload the catalog folder). I suspect that this is the correct way to do it seeing as the http install option works correctly.

I have also looked at all of my permissions and they are all set to 777.

I uploaded the files according to the documentation stating:

 

If the osCommerce installation is to reside on the root path, for example http://www.my-server.com/, then the files within the catalog directory should be copied over and not the actual catalog directory itself.

 

So my configuration looks like so:

 

www.mystorename.com

/mystorename

/admin

/download

/images

/includes

/install

/pub

(and of coarse all of the php files)

 

So what does not look correct?

Any help would be much appreciated. I am chomping at the bit to try out this software.

Thanks.

What's in /mystorename?

All of the folders stated bellow it. Sorry. I probably did not illustrate that well enough.

The folder labeled as mystorename was set up within GoDaddy when I connected via FTP so I threw all of my files into it.

The install page comes up fine but when I get to the section where it sets up the SQL database I get the above error.

Then it should work. I don't see a problem really. A not found is pretty straight forward so check those paths again!

 

Try importing the database manually? Do you have something like phpMyAdmin available? You might try searching on the term "godaddy" and see if any other GD folks have had the same problem.

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

How would I import the database manually? Is it pretty involved?

Sorry I am noob.

Actually godaddy has all the docs you need to set up your database. It is pretty simple. just create the db and remember the user name and password you assigned. After a coupple of mins it will be active and you should get a link to the Manager which is phpMySQL. In there go to the db that got created for you (the name of the db is your username). Then go to SQL Query and use the import file functionality... it will run for a min or so and all the tables will be created... som sample data will be there too.

Then comes the hard part... getting your site properly configured. The autoconfig that does this as part of the install does not work in godaddy or at least with my plan. I am still messing arounf with the configure.php files in order to get my site working... I get the main page but all the links on the page go to a blank page. Same on the admin seccion. Any help is apreciated.
