You need to delete any .htaccess files in the default osCommerce to be able to run the install with FrontPage extensions installed on your domain.


However, you will need to get FrontPage extensions uninstalled, because they will seriously mess with osCommerce.

Windows servers are a nightmare for running php - because web hosting companies are afraid of running php, which is a dynamic scripting language, on a Windows server - so they do all they can to restrict its functioning (php).


Many Windows hosting companies run php in Safe Mode. If you have other osCommerce sites running on this server then I would look in the osCommerce 'admin' folder under Tools --> Server Info to see if php is running in Safe Mode.
