How to define directoy path correctly


BJSG

Recommended Posts

I've been seeing errors in my osC admin and I was really tearing my hair out until I realise this "trend"

 

e.g. error messages about missing directory:

 

public_html/shopimages

public_html/shop/adminbackups

public_html/shoptmp

public_html/shopincludes/modules/...

 

These messages appear because the correct path should be

 

public_html/shop/images

public_html/shop/admin/backups

public_html/shop/tmp

public_html/shop/includes/modules/...

 

the "/" are missing.

 

I know i should goto configure.php to amend these but I'm not sure how to amend. I read the script but I don't see where I can go to add the extra "/"?

 

Can anyone help?

if you post a copy of your configure.php here we can see what may need changing.

 

I suspect it's the line for DIR_WS_CATALOG needing a /

Hi there,

 

this is what I see for my configure.php

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'true'); // use persistent connections?

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'

?>

 

I've tried adding a "/" to "define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/babejoy/public_html/shop/'); and click "save". And I got this error message

 

"/home/babejoy/public_html/shop/includes/configure.php File Saved

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[a fatal error or timeout occurred while processing this directive]"

 

 

The weirdest thing is only some path are affected. The rest works (or at least seemed to work) fine.

 

Another issue is now I cannot cancel my test orders. Whenever I click "delete" for orders, it'll throw my a blank screen. When I click "back" or "refresh", I'll go back to my order screen and the test order will still be there. I remember I can delete order before the migration.

 

Any suggestion?

I thinks the configure.php you posted is the catalog one not the admin one (sorry i should hav read it better and asked for that one!)

 

Can you post admin/includes/configure.php?

 

Tom

 

PS: From the error you posted - are you using the osc file manager/editor to make changes? If so then don't it doesn't work very well - it's better to use a proper ftp client/file editor.

Hi perfectpassion,

 

Are you referring to this one?

?>

 

 

I'm not exactly sure about what you meant by osc admin file. I went to my cpanel, file directories... and I click "edit file" to try to edit it.

 

If there is a need to download additional program, any recommendations? (preferably freeware ;p)

Sorry I've been away.

 

in both files the following line needs an extra / at the end (after shop)

 define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/babejoy/public_html/shop');

 

In the admin one also do the same for the DIR_FS_ADMIN line.

 

 

Try FileZilla for copying or editing files http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/
