The e-commerce.

Going Bald!


Recommended Posts

I dont have any hair left to pull out.

I reinstalled a number of times but cant get it to work.


I followed the Install and Mod guide to the T (Obviously Im missing something but I would bet my check that I am doing everything it says)


When I change the config from

DIR_WS_CATALOG from '/catalog/' to '/' All the links are broken.

If I put the complete directory path the page shows fine but then my links are doubled

ex. birddogsgarage.com/birdogsgarage.com/...


Can anyone post a config file that is set up correct that I can see?


I think I am getting hung up in the whole webserver root directory webserver catalog directory and just plain root and catalog directory.


Any more guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks - TJ

Seems like you probably have your root server set wrongly... Here's my config file...
