Configure.php help!!!


Recommended Posts

I have just had a ssl certificate installed on my osc site, but in one of the steps I have completely incorrectly changed the configure.php file located in the catalog/admin folder....

I receive an error message: "Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/xxx/public_html/admin/includes/configure.php on line 39"........I need someone to let me know what is wrong with the one I have at the moment on my server:

Your problem is here:


define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . '/backups/'


it should be:


define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . '/backups/');

Please use the forums for support! I am happy to help you here, but I am unable to offer free technical support over instant messenger or e-mail.

I see another problem here - I've just used your code to help me figure out MY problem, so in case this is helpful... the / before admin in the define DIR_WS_ADMIN section caused a doubling of forward slashes - so should be 'admin/' instead of '/admin/' - though perhaps there is some other reason why you need that slash that I don't know about.

Just in case this is helpful.
