sppc installation


JoeyRocket

Recommended Posts

I wish to install sppc. The pre-install instructions state:

 

Before beginning the manual install you need to;

 

Upload two included image files to your site. They are located in; catalog\admin\includes\languages\english\images\buttons\

 

Upload two new .php files;

catalog\admin\includes\languages\english\customers_groups.php &

catalog\admin\customers_groups.php

 

Here's the rub: I don't have a catalog\admin\includes directory in my installation of oscommerce. I have a catalog\includes folder, which very much resembles the contents and structure of the catalog\admin\includes folder from my sppc download, but I want to be good and sure of what I'm doing before I proceed. Now I know people use this contribution, so, please, someone tell me the solution to this one.

Hi Joey,

 

I do have two includes folders one under /catalog and another under /admin

 

After installing SPPC I found that attributes was broken.

 

Regards,

Peter

Did you have "includes" in both folders before you installed SPPC? I noticed that the instruction continue to make reference to this folder. If your attributes are broken, is this a functioning contribution for you?

You must have an /admin/ folder? That's where the entire admin tool that runs OSC is served up from. If you don't have it then something is *seriously* wrong with your store. Download a fresh copy of OSC from the downloads section and compare it to the files and folders that you have.

At no point in my initial post (or subsequent) did I say that I didn't have an admin folder. What I said was that I do not have an includes folder in that directory.

 

So read carefully as I explain again. The instructions for installation of SPPC repeatedly refer to an "includes" folder (and subfolders of "includes") located in my "admin" directory. Right now, this folder does not exist (admin/includes). The folder structure and files that I downloaded as part of the SPPC contribution do have this folder (admin/includes). So you see, the two filing structures are incongruent.

 

Upon examining the "includes" folder (and its contents) which is located in my "catalog" directory (catalog/includes), I couldn't help but notice that the contents were remarkably similar to the "admin/includes" folder downloaded in the contribution.

 

Do you see my concern? My logic tells me that the instructions which refer to "catalog/admin/includes" (which does not exist in a clean installation of OSC) should actually be refering to "catalog/includes".

 

Now, I'm not saying that my logic is right. I just want to be absolutely sure of what I'm doing before I start this process. Like I mentioned before, I know people use this contribution, so this should be an easy one to get an answer for. And I apologize if I come across as short-tempered, but I am test driving OSC, and I really want it to work out, but these forums do not compare to customer service.

Try downloading a clean installation of OSC and look inside the /admin/ folder. You will see an /includes/ folder there in all it's glory.

 

As we're talking about reading things carefully (as you only seem to have bothered with the first six words of my post) I'll repeat that the files for the Admin Tool that runs OSC mostly reside in the /admin/includes/ folder. If you do not have an /admin/includes/ folder then you do not have an OSC Admin Tool - which is going to make updating and administering your store completely impossible.

I apologize if my reply was abrasive. I assure you that I did read your entire message. I did not, however, download a clean installation of OSC, because my admin tool seems to work just fine. I will take your advice and download a clean copy. Please, be certain, I appreciate your help on this matter.
