The e-commerce.

Column controller Help


Recommended Posts

I am a real newb at using OS Commerce, and web applications in general so bear with me. I have no trouble wih step one of installation "Copy all files in the catalog folder over your existing fresh oscommerce-2.2ms2 install", but step two, "Load the SQL file to your database", has left me stumped.

Could anyone give me a general idea, or better yet, step by step instructions, as to what to do with column_controller.php?

Thanks in advance.

Never installed it so can't help you with step by step instructions but the load SQL part means you have to go to your phpmyadmin and manually enter the contents of the sql file included in the contribution zip.

You do this by logging in to phpmyadmin however your host has that set up, select your database name from the dropdown on the left if it isn't already selected, click on SQL and either copy and paste the contents of the sql file or click the browse find the file on your hard drive select it then click go.


Just so you know, if you want to move around boxes you can just copy/cut the code from one column and put it in the other. You do this on the catalog/includes/column_right.php and/or column_right.php


To remove a box you just have to put a // infront of it.

for example

require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'shopping_cart.php');


// require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'shopping_cart.php');

and you will no longer see it.
