The e-commerce.

Duplicate Directory Error


Recommended Posts



Has anyone experienced this issue:




If you click on a flag to translate the site you will see something like this: http://thecablefactory.net/osc/osc?language=de


(the issue being osc is listed twice, generating a 404 error)


If you change the currency, you'll see something like this:



However, if you navigate to any subpage, everything works properly, and if you manually add /index.php to http://thecablefactory.net/osc/, everything works.


My configuration file is:

 define('DB_DATABASE', '********');
 define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false'); // use persistent connections?
 define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'


I've tried all different ways of setting this up: this is the way that works. Removing references to OSC or creating absolute references (http://thecablefactory.net/osc) does not help.


Does anyone know what is going on?
