The e-commerce.

No changes that I make will be updated - Please Help


Recommended Posts

I'm running OsC 2.2, Apache2, PHP and MySql on a Win XP.

I got to the point where I can browse around and look at everything but I'm unable to create Accounts - Go shopping and none of the changes that I make in the admin area will be saved.

Kind of guessed that I missed some part of allowing the OsC to write in MySql db or something around there.


Is there someone out there who knows how to fix this?? or knows where I can find the info on how to fix it.

Cause I've been looking through the 96 pages of messages and nobody there seemed to have the same problem as I.

Could it be you installed the shop on db 'firstshop'

but have the admin point to db 'secondshop'?


So you actually DO change things but you never get to see them,

ie DATABASE_NAME in Admin is different from the one in catalog...

Well it doesn't seems that way to me, anyway here's the lines from /catalog/includes/configure.php :


define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'); // eg, localhost - should not be NULL for productive servers

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'mysql');

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '');

define('DB_DATABASE', 'catalog');

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false'); // use persistent connections?

define('STORE_SESSIONS', ''); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'


and from /admin/includes/configure.php


define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'mysql');

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '');

define('DB_DATABASE', 'catalog');

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');

define('STORE_SESSIONS', '');


if you do have any other suggestions I'm greatful.
