The e-commerce.

please help, missing SQL file


Recommended Posts

I created a database, upload the catalog folder, got to mydomain/catalog/install, conected to my new BD, however I recieved an error message saying the oscommerce.sql file could not be found. If I check back through FTP I can see the file there.


Anyone know what this means?

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.

I went back to my host, even with the root it still didn't work. I saw that my host is running me on an ASP server, and I requested to change it to a PHP. I will put the line that I changed back to what it was, so it should work now? right?
