osCommerce

The e-commerce.

New Install

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install OSCommerce on a virtual dedicated server from GoDaddy. I launch the /catalog/install and it brings up the initial screen that says "New Installation" and it gives you checkboxes for "Import Catalog Database" and "Automatic Configuration." When I click continue it doesn't go to the next page; it just stays on the same page. It seems like the POST functionality of PHP is not working correctly. Does anyone know what could be causing this? Thanks!

Just installed and did the same thing to me. Been working on it for awhile now and would certainly like to know whats up.

I'm wondering if it's a PHP configuration issue; something that needs to be configured on the server itself?

I found this and I am trying it now. Server is restarting will let you know.

 

The most common cause for installation getting stuck in step 2

is that most recent PHP installations have register_long_arrays = OFF

This needs to be turned to ON in the php.ini file (you will need to

stop and restart your server to get this change to take effect.)

Sigh and here I thought this would be simple.

 

That worked like a charm! Thanks so much for replying to my post!!!!!

I had the same problem. If you don't have access to your php.ini, you can create an entry in the .htaccess File (on an apache webserver):

 

php_flag register_long_arrays on
