New Installation

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

Am new here but this seems a coold product. Problem I have is this. I'm running a PC with Apache, PHP and MySQL. I've installed all the DB fine and that seems content. However, when it moves on to the webside install, it craps out asking for CHMOD settings to be altered on the config file. I don't have FTP am not running IIS or UNIX.

 

Can someone for the love of god please tell me how to resolve this, I'm going bald very rapidly!!

 

Thanks in advanced!

Right click on the files in question and untick the 'Read Only' box. This should reset the file permissions.

 

If it doesn't (look at the file again and see if it has reverted to Read Only) then you haven't set the Apache server up with the right user permissions.

 

Rather than installing parts of your web server manually I'd recommend using XAMPP (www.apachefriends.org/en) which installs everything with 1-click - PHP 4 and 5, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, Mercury Mail Server etc.

Hi,

 

Unfortunately tha didn't work. The error message I get is on step 7 and says;

Config file does not exist or permission levels are not set

Perform

cd c:/program files/apache group/apache 2/htdocs/php/oscommerce/catalog/includes

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php

 

This message is repeated twice. I've installed the catalog directory into a php folder under htdocs in its own folder called oscommerce. The database part installs fine, it just seems to be when it gets to this stage. I did right click and change the permissions, when I went back these were fine. I've given full control too but still to no avail. Has anyone else come across this?

 

This is so frustrating as I really want to get into this wicked sounding project!

 

Thanks in advanced!

Hi,

 

I've resolved this - hurrah! Rather embarrassingly though it was through no fault but my own, I renamed the config files which it suggests to do but to start with thought better of it. AM SORRY! I should've read the errors and notes more closely.

 

LESSON LEARNT!!
