:: fixed errors after host changed ipaddress ::


Recommended Posts


Thanks, osCommerce community!!!


Our webhost changed our ipaddress and we encountered a few errors in our osCommerce site that we were able to fix easily thanks to this forum and to the knowledge base!


The first error message was a pink warning message across the top of our site:

Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /mystore/public_html/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file


We fixed with this knowledge base link


by editing our file permissions using CPanel



The second error message was blank catalog page marked:

"Error! Unable to determine the page link!"


We fixed with this forum link


which says:


in your shops admin

go to

configuration>>my store

and set

Use Search Engine Safe Urls (in development) to False



Voila! We're done. it took us less than an hour to search for what we needed, make the changes and write this *thank you.*


Thanks, osCommerce community!
