osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Getting stuck at step 5


Guest

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set up oscommerce on my desktop using the AppServer 2.4 package (Apache 2.0.59, PHP 4.4.4, MySQL 5.0.24a and phpMyAdmin 2.9.0.2). I get all the way through the install to the final page with the 'Catalog' and 'Admin' buttons. When I click the buttons I get 'Unable to connect to database server'.

 

I have been stuck on it for hours! Any help would be greatly appreciated smile.gif Please please!

check your settings in catalog/includes/configure.php and in admin/includes/configure.php . At the bottom of each you need to fill in mysql server the user and the password for your database

 

Have checked this and they are all correct as far as I can see. I get right through the end step fine, but when I click on the button to open either admin or catalog I get the error saying unable to connect. Cheers for the suggestion though. Any other clues? Is there a log somewhere I can check for what the error might be? This is the first time I've worked with oscommerce.

Try to open your desk top installation with out using the buttons and see if that works. The buttons may still try to look on the internet for you site rather then local.

Ahh, some thing is happening here. If I type http://localhost/oscommerce_store/catalog/index.php into my browser it is actually trying to connect to http://www.localhost.com/oscommerce_store/catalog/index.php instead.

 

My catalog/includes/configure.php file is set up as below;

Sorry to be a bit slow but am still fairly new at this. Getting there but still getting stuck at the most simple things sometimes! Any help is greatly appreciated :)
