The e-commerce.

files wiped error - dreamweaver help


Recommended Posts



I have been slowly making my way through installing oscommerce. I also installed wamp (with php5, apache2, phpmyadmin and mysql) so i could preview my site locally.

I had it all set up and working and had begun the process of customising my site, using dreamweaver to upload and edit files.


The good news is that all my files weren't wiped off my computer! The odd news is i recently opened dreamweaver and i didn't have any sites there. They had all just disappeared! I can't imagine how i deleted them.


Anyhow, i put the oscommerce site back up there and went to preview index.php in the browser... and got this error:


>>>>404- Not Found

>>>>The requested URL /TMP2thy7ztbg1.php was not found on this server.

>>>>Apache/2.0.55 (Win32) PHP/5.1.4 Server at localhost Port 80


Now I have spent the last couple of weeks working out the whole installation process from oscommerce to wamp with error after error and i have bit by bit fixed each thing (very slowly because i am learning html and php and sql all at the same time - I haven't posted on the forum once but i have found so many answers here - thank you!)


The thing is - i have no idea what i did! I don't know whether the error is in a config file, or in the site setup in dreamweaver. I can't remember every installation and setup process that i have been through over the past many weeks. I don't know what TMP file the error is referring too.


Can anyone help?


In dreamweaver, i set up the site as



local root folder: c:\wamp\www\catalog (same as before)

http address: localhost/



access: none



sever model: PHP MySQL

access: local/network

url prefix: http://localhost



have i missed something?


please help

OK Vger, if you are reading this:


I just read your post bagging dreamweaver.




I will go and download XAMP if you reckon it is newer and better and it won't run me into this trouble again.


I just hope it doesn't take me forever to get my head around all the new programs - as if my little brain ain't spinning already.


Is anyone interested in me paying them to sit on the other end of a phoneline and guide me through this process? I don't want someone else to do my whole site for me - i want to learn this stuff. I just want to learn it quicker and get my site up and running sooner, that's all.
