Complete Newbie Installation


Recommended Posts



Please forgive me for my noob skills but here goes


I am trying to run http://www.mydomain.co.uk/install


I get the first screen that asks if you want a new install or an upgrade, I have chosen new install. Then all I get is a blank screen saying done at the bottom.


I have set permissions on all files and folders to 777 and i have a new blank database called myneed.


Can anybody help.

The most common cause for installation getting stuck in step 2

is that most recent PHP installations have register_long_arrays = OFF

This needs to be turned to ON in the php.ini file (you will need to

stop and restart your server to get this change to take effect.)

one-click installation..

Upload the OS Commerce files in auto negotiate fashion. I had a similar issue when I uploaded the files in ASCII mode (using filezilla). I trashed the site and re-uploaded the files in autonegotiate (which is the default when the program is executed) and everything worked correctly.
