osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Cannot edit configuration

Hi there,

 

I've installed osCommerce on my webserver and everything went fine.

 

Only to find out, that when trying to configure (through admin pages - > configuration) all changes are not saved, but the old values get erased leaving a blank fields.

 

I can edit the database manually with the account specified during setup.

 

I'm really puzzled here. Any help?

 

Thanks,

 

Rob

If this isnt working and you wish to continue running osCommerce, you need to switch providers. No workaround will be sufficient for ongoing website maintenance, etc.

 

Presently you have a serious data access problem that cannot be resolved simply.

Hi Eric,

that would be a strange solution. My provider isn?t the issue here, I think somewhere I?m overlooking something. As I?m new to osCommerce it is not easy for me to find out where.

 

Anybody any advise?

 

Thanks,

The only thing I can think of is to ensure you have the correct permissions on your files (consult the install doco) and enough rights on the database for the user you specified during install.

On the user account side it's OK. I can edit the database with phpmyadmin with the user account used at install time.

 

The permissions on the folders suggest that osCommerce is temporarily storing data on the disk, instead of a memory buffer. Is this correct? If so, which folder(s) need(s) write access to store this data?

 

Thanks,

Permissions on folders should be 755, while permissions on files (except for the two configure.php files) should be 644.

 

Check your admin/includes/configure.php file against the contents of your includes/configure.php file. Very often the install does not write all data to the admin configure.php file - especially a problem on Windows servers.

I've checked all permissions and it still isn't working.

 

The installation mentions to upload all PHP files in ASCII. Does this mean that all none PHP files should be uploaded binary?

 

Are there any special database privileges necessary? It is a hosted solution and the mysql database account is used at install time and has configured all necesarry tables without errors.

 

Regards,

 

Rob
