Recommended Posts

Forgive me, I have not searched the forum, as I have no clue what Im looking for me


Basically I have setup locally (my own XP PRO PC) IIS, PHP support, MYSQL and now am trying to install osCommerce.


I should also explain that I am a techie, but new to php ...


Anyhow all is well, navigate the fitrst few install screens, input the database details but then the problem occurs


Basically it says its on Step 2 (New Installation Database Import) but it does not do anything nor does it report an error connecting to the database. All I see is "New Installation" and "Database Import" - almost looks like the page is not completed ...


any help GRATEFULLY received

Downgrade php to 4.3.11


Check in your php.ini to see if Register Globals is enabled or not. If they are set to Off then either set them to On or install the Register Globals Patch Files (link below my name).

Thanks Vger !


Will try that tonight - Hopefully thats all it is


(btw register globals is not an issue - I have made the changes already, as the install does not even start if this is not in place)
