Q: Install osCommerce 2.2 on Windows 2000?


Recommended Posts

Is there a short description on how to install osCommerce on Windows 2000?


I have installed php4 for IIS5 and everything seems to work OK, I am trying to install osCommerce but when I try to access some pages like "documentation/index.php" or other pages I get this error:


CGI Error

The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:



I know php is working OK since I have played around with databases and PHP in some testpages of mine.


Please, can some give me a pointer to a short description?

Not sure if www.oscdox.com handles Win2000 installs but it's worth getting their guide(s) as a new user anyway so check them out.


Your error seems like it is actually NOT parsing the PHP correctly.

Did you by any change got the UNIX version of osCommerce / uploaded it as binary instead of ASCII?

Hi Mattice,

thanks for the sugestion.


I am pretty sure I downloaded the Windows version. I downloaded the zip-file containing all files (admin, catalog, doc.).


In the application_top.php there are some configuration strings using / as a path delimiter but is used on windows. Can this be an issue?
