I dont know where to start. i got a nice hosting package, with lots of gb of memory. Osc in a script thats installed alredy as a free script. I have printed out the doc for update 2.2 milestone 2 051112.

 

the problems that I have are :

1. the backups dir I added to the catalog/admin and set perm to 777 still said missing dir.

 

2. created the cache dir and followed the dir and is says no such file

 

3. when I try to edit the index.php to change text it allways tells me error on line 13. I have made sure I left () ' " where they were and did no bother with anything else just text.

 

If any1 can help I'll give you perm to get into cpanel and into the admin to see what you can do. I think this is just too much out of my league. I know i dont know what I'm doing wrong.

 

email me at [email protected]

thanks

Ted

For the first two problems, when you get the message that it doesn't exist, it will give you the patch to the file. Please copy and paste that here. For the third problem, paste your english/index.php file here (with the text in it that makes it fail).

I hope this is what you meant.

Error: Backup directory does not exist. Please set this in configure.php.

 

Backup Directory: /home/www/thedecoreshoppe.com/catalog/admin/backups

 

Error: Cache directory does not exist. Please set this Configuration->Cache

Cache Directory: home/www/thedecoreshoppe.com/OSCommerce/catalog/cache

Use Cache true

Cache Directory home/www/thedecoreshoppe.com/OSCommerce/catalog/cache

 

I dont know what I did but it fixed the index.php and its working now.

 

thanks

Those are what I meant and they appear correct. Please post your admin/includes/configure.php file, minus the login data.

Hi

 

I think this should be...

 

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'); // eg, localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

 

 

or

 

 

define('DB_SERVER', 'remotemysqlhost'); // eg, localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

That's the wrong configure file but it should be changed anyway. Try this:

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://toktu.sc43.info//OSCommerce'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://toktu.sc43.info'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
define('ENABLE_SSL', false); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?
define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '.toktu.sc43.info');
define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '');
define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/OSCommerce/catalog/');
define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '');
define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/OSCommerce/catalog/');
define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/OSCommerce/catalog/');

Same thing. Try changing this

to this

Hey Jack,

 

Did we try the obvious here and make sure that he has setup the directories exactly where they belong and spelled them correctly? On one of my sites I once had a horrible time getting my backup to work because I made a directory called /backup instead of /backups???

 

Why can't computers understand what you mean instead of what you say? They're supposed to be the smart ones!

 

And you have no idea how long it took me to fix that stupd little error!! :blush:

Just between us, remember there are only 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary and those who don't!!

 

Remember, learning is a "do-it-yourself" experience; although, not necessarily a "do-it-BY-yourself" experience.

 

The quickest way to learn is to forget to BACKUP!

not to step in but on the second error for the index page, if you changed any of the screen text which I have found out the hard way if you added any words such as can't don't won't anything that has an apstrophe you will get an error. If you add any words that contain ' you have to change them like this don\'t, won\'t, can\'t I remember spending about 7 hours when I personalized the index page and kept adding words with apostrophe's trying to figure out where I went wrong.

Good point. It's always best to check the obvious first. :)

Well, I've done all of that and now i get this.

 

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) in /home/www/thedecoreshoppe.com/OSCommerce/catalog/includes/functions/database.php on line 19

Unable to connect to database server!

 

 

I dont know. can 1 of you guys help me. I do thank you both for your help but this is getting me down.

I would check this section of the includes/functions/database.php

 

define('DB_SERVER', 'supremecenter43.com'); // eg, localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'username');
define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', 'password');
define('DB_DATABASE', 'toktu_admin');
define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');
define('STORE_SESSIONS', '');

 

Make sure the username / password are correct, I also noticed a difference between yours and mine, the USE_Pconnect says 'true' on mine don't know if that makes a difference. Also my STORE SESSIONS is says 'mysql' in it.

 

It could be something you can try, its reversable to go back in and take out what you added/changed.

also this section in mine

 

define('DB_SERVER', 'supremecenter43.com');

 

says

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');

 

 

Hi All,

 

Not sure if this is a similar issue... so please forgive me if it does not help...

 

I have a local Develpment site (running on XP with Xampp Server environment) which runs currently runs fine and performs as would expect.

 

I also have a web site which is running on an original install which also performs OK with the version it is running.

 

The issue comes when attempting to update the Web site with what is running on the local site....

 

In order to make it simple :-" i renamed my remote catalog and uploaded the local one being careful to amend the catalog/admin/includes/configue.php to reflect the remote database references (database name, user and password) at this point i thought i had changed all i needed to make my local catalog work online... :blush:

 

I have obviously missed something and spent the best part of my day looking for it!!

What have i missed...

 

I get the following error message:

 

Warning: mysql_pconnect(): Access denied for user: 'local_admin@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /data01/nhcadmin/public_html/catalog/includes/functions/database.php on line 17

Unable to connect to database server!

 

local_admin is NOT the user for the online system....so i know i missed something. :(

 

If anyone could shed some light I would be very grateful and sleep tonight!!

Cache directory does not exist. Please set this Configuration->Cache.

 

Use Cache true

I have checked my spelling in text on index.php and do not use contractions. don't won't ecx

 

so now i'm stumped. I had changed things as you had said in the threads to my posts but they really made my site quite working. as they are now everything works fine but the cache and backups from the admin controle panel.

 

thanks ted
