The e-commerce.

application.php missing?


Recommended Posts



I'm installing OsCommerce for the first time.


When I try to hit http://[my-server]/catalog/install/ I'm getting the following error:



Warning: main(includes/functions/general.php) [function.main]: failed to create stream: No such file or directory in /[snip-snip]/public_html/catalog/install/includes/application.php on line 28


Fatal error: Failed opening required 'includes/functions/general.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /[snip-snip]/public_html/catalog/install/includes/application.php on line 28



My includes directory doesn't have an application.php ...


/public_html/catalog/includes> ls

CVS/ column_right.php* functions/

application_bottom.php* configure.php general.js

application_top.php* configure.php-dist header.php*

boxes/ counter.php* languages/

classes/ footer.php* local/

column_left.php* form_check.js.php modules/



I downloaded the Dec 1 version 2.2 snapshot.


Is the application.php file missing or have I missed a step in the installation process?

The file is called application_top.php


I would guess that you have somehow mixed up the file name definitions in that very file. Use a fresh (as in unchanged) version of the application_top.php and try again.



You can't have everything. That's why trains have difficulty crossing oceans, and hippos did not adapt to fly. -- from the OpenBSD mailinglist.
