osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Is this normal?

I'm using windows hosting and have been banging my head against a wall all morning trying to install oscommerce. I should have given up by now but just can't cos I feel like I'm close.

 

I'm keep getting this error whether I install through help or upload the files:

 

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in C:\Domains\mysite.com\wwwroot\catalog\includes\con figure.php on line 35

 

noW the line looks like this:

 

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', 'C:\\\\Domains\\\\mysite.com\\\\wwwroot\\\\catalog \\\\\');

 

 

Is that how it should look?

oscommerce needs to be on a linux server. You will probably need to have them switch your hosting to a Linux or Unix server.

Thanks for the help but managed to get it working its working now the line needs to read with / instead of \\\

I just wanted to point out that oscommerce works fine on a Windows server. There are some situations that take a little more effort to solve but nothing fatal. I would recommend that, if given a choice, one should go with non-Windows servers, but it is not required.
