The e-commerce.

How to install OSCommerce on windows 2003 w/ IIS 6


Recommended Posts

Note to those who say use Apache or anything else but IIS. I dont care. I already know how to configure that for apache and I like to expand my knowledge to other webservers. In other words dont bother trying to convince me to switch.


Windows Server 2003 Enterprise


IIS 6.0


PHP 4 is installed and tested with a test script


MySQL 4 with Administrator 1.1 is installed and tested with myphpadmin.


I installed OSCommerce and it came up the page and it asked me questions and so forth and connected to the database and connection was successful and no errros till....


The following error has occurred:


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






oh the file is there. i even got my neighbor to come over and give me a 2nd pair of eyes to confirm its there. in the proper place.


I am sure its a IIS 6 permissions because its normally locked down tighter than 2000 server.


anyone know how can I fix?

Mind you, I wouldn't touch IIS with a stick, I only saved the link in case someone else might need it. :-"
