Installing osCommerce


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm new to osCommerce. In fact I've just found it but it seems to do exactly what we need - multiple shop fronts with one back end (and all other carts I've looked at don't seem to have this).

 

To get started, I'm trying to install osCommerce onto my local window pc. I have PHP 5 installed and apache 1.3. I'll also be using MySQL 5.0.

 

Installation doesn't get very far. I've enabled register global (which concerns me somewhat). When I click on Install a new online store, I come to the page with two checkboxes. Clicking continue brings the same page back but with no error message. I can't get any further than this.

 

I'd appreciate any help. My boss is pushing to get this sorted.

 

Many thanks.

What server do you have installed on your PC?

Hi

 

I've discovered that I need to turn on register_long_arrays and/or register_argc_argv as well as register_globals.

 

I hope this might help other people having the same problem.

Okay, so installation is complete but osCommerce still isn't working.

 

First off, application_top.php is trying to load a file called .php from the languages folder. Having edited that file to force it to load english.php, it is now complaining that the banners table isn't in the database. The admin page is also complaining that the orders_status table can't be found. There are tables in the database but I suspect not all were created successfully.

 

I'm using up todate software - MySql 5.0 and PHP 5.0 and a fairly recent version of apache 1.3. Is this likely to be the problem? I've noticed that the php code is using $HTTP_GET_VARS rather than $_GET and so on.
