Download products help


Recommended Posts

Hi all


I can't seem to get my download products to work. Here's what I did:


- in the store admin, I went to configuration/dowload. Both "enable download" and "download by redirect" are set to TRUE. Expiry delay is at 7 days and max downloads is at 5.


- I uploaded my Zip files in the store/download folder. In the instructions it says to put them in store/cataloque/download, but there isn't a download or pub folder in "catalogue"; only in "store".


- I made sure "pub" was at 777 and "download" at 755


- I made sure in "includes/configure.php" that both pub and download had the forward slash


- I added 1 product for download in my categories


- In "product attributes", I selected my product and added the file name and clicked INSERT.


Once I activated the "enable download" and "download by redirect" to TRUE, I had this message in red at the top of my live store: Warning: The downloadable products directory does not exist: /home/httpd/vhosts/touchphotography.com/httpdocs/storedownload/. Downloadable products will not work until this directory is valid.


You can see for yourself HERE.


I don't have a storedownload folder with OSCommerce.


If someone could help me out that would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like you just dont have your configuration paths quite tweaked.


Where your error says:



I think it is missing a / .. after the word store .. which is screwing your download path up.


Try going into your /catalog/includes/configure.php


Find the line that reads:

define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'download/');



define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . '/download/'); // was download/



I think this is a default install code error .. beacuse I got caught up on that one too.

I had to add the / before the word download ... so the download directory would be correct.


Hope that works for you.
