Problem with Easypopulate

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install Easy populate and don't understsand the following?

 

// **** Temp directory ****

// if you changed your directory structure from stock and do not have /catalog/temp/, then you'll need to change this accordingly.

//

$tempdir = "/temp/";

$tempdir2 = "/temp/";

 

I don't have /catalog/temp/ ? how do i change this accordingly?

 

$tempdir = "/temp/";

$tempdir2 = "/temp/";

 

and what is chmod 777?

 

Remember the file must be readable by the username that the web server is running as.

You might have to chmod 777 the uploaded file to let the script read it.

 

also, what do I need to put for product name and price in the excel header before export to csv?

The first thing you need to do is create a folder named temp in your shop directory.

ie.

If you have your shop on www.yourstorename.com , you have to create the folder www.yourstorename.com/temp

or

If your shop is in a subdirectory (ie www.yourstorename.com/shop/) you need to create the folder www.yourstorename.com/shop/temp

 

chmod sets the permissions for the folder. You normally change these using your ftp program or on your hosting account. 777 means that the file has to be set as "read", "write", and "execute" in all areas.

Here is a quick tutorial link. Good luck

ie...

 

One of my sites (I am going to start) is called www.scorpio-rising.net/

 

I would create the temp file in my home directory...

so it would look like this: www.scorpio-rising.net/temp/

 

Then you set to true and put /temp/ as your directory.

next use ftp to change chmod to 777.

 

It should start working then.
