Beginner Help with install


Recommended Posts


I'm a beginner at this so I have no clue what is wrong...When using the web based install all goes fine until it gets to the database import. I always get this error SQL file does not exist: /install/oscommerce.sql


But, I have transfered the file via WS_FTP to the catalog/install directory on my server.. Whats the problem?

You are probably trying to install on a Windows server.

If they were people - they wouldn't be able to find their own way home.

You need to edit install/templates/pages/install_3.php and where you see:

$sql_file = $dir_fs_www_root . 'install/oscommerce.sql';


Edit it to (change /path_to_root/ to real path):

$sql_file = '/path_to_root/install/oscommerce.sql';


You will need to know the path to the root of your website.

Check with your hosting company if you don't know.
