Never heard of that restriction.

If I had the choice of sticking with a crappy third party processor that imposed such restrictions and having my store penalized (or barred) for redirects, or installing the store properly and switching to a different processor, it wouldn't be a hard decision...

 

If you really need a redirect, you can do it in . htaccess file (assuming your host supports it) - how are you doing it now - looks like a meta redirect.

Is there a particular reason 2checkout has to be in a subdirectory? Never heard of that before. It should work from where ever you install and set it up from.

Well the reason im with 2checkout.com is because they dont have a monthly charge for a low budget store keeps overhead down anyway...to get the auto redirect after something is sold working properly I installed it in a subdirectory It was not working before I put it in a sub directory...

 

 

How do you do an htaccess redirect??

It was not working before I put it in a sub directory

 

Well, rather than patching with redirects, wouldn't it have been better to try to find out what the problem was and fix that?

When you say "2checkout requires the store to be in a subdirectory", what you really mean is "I couldn't get it to work when it wasn't in a subdirectory"?

They are not the same!

I contacted 2checkout tech support and told them the problem and they told me for system v2 they require it to be in a subdirectory if your using oscommerce I put it in from the root and it worked so shrug

And what _was_ the problem, exactly? I can't see how on earth a payment processor can require your store to be structured a specific way.

 

Well granted 2checkout support is not that bright but....the problem was

 

everything worked the user could check out but when 2checkout.com tried to redirect to my page and it was not in a sub directory i would get a page not found error....after i put it in the subdirectory it worked ... So im thinking of just keeping the redirect in but its messing up my indexing on search engines ;( so trying to fix it somehow with keeping it in the subdirectory

What? This sounds ludicrous. I would try to speak to somebody else and find out more information.

Here is what I did for my site (with your URL inplace of mine).

 

redirect 301 /index.html http://www.turnkeytemplates.net/catalog/index.php

redirect 301 /index.php http://www.turnkeytemplates.net/catalog/index.php

 

Put that in the .htaccess in the root of your site and it should work fine. Google has been indexing my site just fine.
