osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Can't install

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm starting to develop a site which will be based (during development) on my local machine running osCommerce on an Apache server (Windows XP).

 

I've developed sites in the past for IIS/SQLServer/.asp/htm.

 

However, I'm completely new to Apache/mySQL/PHP/osCommerce.

 

I've followed the installation instructions for the latest versions of Apache and PHP and have tested .html/.shtml/.cgi/.php and found all to be working

 

I've installed the latest version of mySQL and used phpMyAdmin to create a database as per the pre-installation instructions (http://www.oscommerce.info/docs/english/e_pre-installation_procedure.html).

 

I can't change the permission on the "catalog/includes/configure.php" file to 777 as I'm unable to CHMOD on my local Windows machine.

 

I point my browser to http://localhost/install/index.php as instructed, I get a nice osCommerce welcome screen inviting me to set up a new store, so far so good.

 

I click on this and get as far as the next page (http://localhost/install/install.php?step=2) where I leave the options to import a database and save configuration values checked (although unchecking them doesn't make a difference).

 

As soon as I click continue on this screen it just reloads the same page, no error is provided by the browser and there's nothing in Apache's error log either.

 

If anyone could tell me what I've done wrong I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Rob.

What version of apache, mysql and php are you using?

 

Apache 2.0.54 (Win32)

 

mySQL 4.1

 

PHP 5.0.4.4

 

These were all the latest (stable) releases from the respective product home pages.

 

Thanks for your swift reply.

 

Cheers,

 

Rob.

php5 causes problems with osCommerce, as well mysql 4.1, so you can either downgrade to the previous release or have to install things manually into the database and make some changes to your files, search for php5 and you should find things.
