The e-commerce.

Viewing Admin Section


Recommended Posts

A little background may be required here. I had to manually import the oscommerce.sql file into the database since the installation script would not find the oscommerce.sql fine when trying to run it.


After which took a little work to get the front end of the script running. But that seems to be taken care of with some edits.


Although now I have been working on getting the admin section to work over the last 2 days. Call it a mind block...brain fart...too much code passing in front of my eyes...i dont know? But when i try to load the index.php located in my admin folder I get a plain white blank page. No errors while loading the page what so ever. I edited the admin/includes/configure.php file to reflect the same as the configuration file in root/includes/configure.php file.


Here is the configuration file from the admin section. Anyone have any ideas? Keep in mind I am not using the catalog folder that came with OSCommerce. I have installed all the folders to the root of the web. The web is located at http://ricksinbox.no-ip.com if you are interested in looking for yourself. The admin section is named still as default until this issue is resolved.
