Try this:


define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');


And if that works, or even if it doesn't work, change your MySQL User Name and Password - which you should never post to a public forum. Not everyone on the internet is a nice person!


One other thing, check in both of the includes/local/ folders to see if they contain alternative configure.php files. If you find any just rename them.

I am appreciate your continous help to solve my problem.

Even after change the db server settings still no luck ( There is no any other configure.php files in any directory). Do I have to do anything to take effect changes i have done for configure.php?


When I click the items on shooping cart it's still pointing to loocal address like bellow

Thank you so much...

It's working !!!

Please ignore my previous post. Actually I found another configure.php in another directory. So it's working perfect now. Another one more question if you don't mind. How can I assign admin password for /catalog/admin/index.php page?
