installation error

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

this is my first post here as i have just tried to install OSC on my server (actually have been trying for a couple of days now). Here is the thing, I followed the exact installation instructions, got the registered_globals error, patched the installation and finally got access to the install folder. However, neither the "new installation" nor the "upgrade" options work. I keep getting stuck on the same page (domain.com/catalog/install/upgrade.php?step=2 and domain.com/catalog/install/install.php?step=2).

 

The installation will simply not continue! :(

 

I ought to point out that I get no error messages (such as the register_globals error I was getting before) :'(

Just the same page with the same fields!

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Chears!

What options are you given on that page?

Sure. Send them via PM along with the correct URL and I will see if I can help you out.

The tip that buston98 offered finally worked like a charm! the shop is now up and running!

 

However, since I see that there are so many people suffering during the installation procedure (I guess it's due to different system configuations) wouldn't it be a great idea if there was a dedicated area here in the forum with questions and answers for specific problems?

 

For example:

Q: Are you getting an empty page during installation?

A: Format your drive :)

 

I am an experienced php web developer but trying to find the reason for OSC not installing as it should is like in_array... needle in the haystack!
