Hey everyone ... my first post so bare with me.

 

Ive installed OSCommerce before on other servers however this is my first time using globat.com as a web host and I'm getting a very annoying error. They offer OSCommerce as a option on there site so I know the server is compatible. I created a new database and modified a user for it ... and when i go to install on the server it connects to database but the step after that it gives me this error saying this.

 

New Installation

 

Database Import

 

The following error has occurred:

 

SQL file does not exist: /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/install/oscommerce.sql

 

I checked to make sure that the file was uploaded on my server and it appears that it is ... am i missing something here ... im having one of those really dumb moments right now and I have given up on thinking .... Can someone please help me out. :'(

please guys cmon .... ive tried everything .... even read most of the posts involving this issue and used their methods as well ...

 

// replaced this:

// $script_filename = getenv('PATH_TRANSLATED');

// with this:

$script_filename = $_SERVER["PATH_TRANSLATED"];

 

if (empty($script_filename)) {

 

// And changed this:

// $script_filename = getenv('SCRIPT_FILENAME');

// to this:

$script_filename = $_SERVER["SCRIPT_FILENAME"];

}

 

nothing is working ... i would hate to have to result to paying someone to install oscommerce on a server .... that would make me feel really dumb then ... :(

Unable to connect to database server!

 

do i need to change my root folder somewhere .. if so where? or is that even the issue ... i would really appreciate some comments here people .... sorry to sound rude but any programmer would tell you its very frustrating when things arent going your way.

Did you ever solve the installation problem? I gave up trying to do it manually and went with the one-click install. (I was trying to do it manually because the first time I looked they still has version 1.x as the installation.)

 

I haven't worked out all of my bugs yet, I still have image problems on the admin side since it's in the secure directory. I'm *almost* there, though.
