Recommended Posts

I've added oscommerce form the application vault.

In httpdocs folder is an oscommerce folder.

In the oscommerce folder are admin download images includes install and pub folders and a whole bunch of php files.

Inside the install folder are images includes and templates folders, and index, install and upgrade php files and one oscommerce sql file.

 

Where do I go? How do I install?

All instructions mention a catalog folder, but I can't see one anywhere.

 

Please help

You're better off downloading it from here. Those automated installers are only as good as the person that put the package together (and sometimes that's not so good).

If you install oscommerce from the application vault in Plesk, you have to fill out a form with configuration information (password, mysql user, oscommerce directory name, ect.). After you fill out the form and hit install, oscommerce is ready to go. Just go to www.yourdomain.com/oscommerce to see your store and www.yourdomain.com/oscommerce/admin to configure it.

 

If you are getting any errors, it is possible plesk was not configured properly.

Thank you !- now I have to figure out how to log in to admin!! The oscommerce set up form says

"use FTP/Microsoft FrontPage login and password of domain to login as administrator."

 

I don't use Microsoft FrontPage - where am I going to get login?

Just goto http://www.yourdomain.com/oscommerce/admin and use the user/password you supplied when plesk did the installation. This will get you to the admin screen

 

Plesk writes to the .htaccess file during install to password protect that folder.

 

I did the install on my server a couple of days ago and it was really painless. ( Plesk 7.5.4 ) :D

use FTP/Microsoft FrontPage login and password of domain to login as administrator

 

This message means that your site has FrontPage extensions installed on it. You need to either remove them yourself (if you can) or get your hosting company to uninstall them for you (if you can't).

 

FrontPage extensions will prevent the use of .htaccess files and generally screw up an osCommerce website.
