Difficulty Installing osCommerce (looping install)


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set up an osCommerce site for a friend. He bought a template from a site, and I uploaded it to his server. I went through the setup, making a database on the host website, and then it said installation was complete and successful. However, when I click the Catalog button to view the site, it goes to the first install page, and when I click the Admin button to configure the site, it says "Unable to connect to database server!" I've done the setup many times, tried different settings, and deleted and re-created the database, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Have the same prob , I did notice that the includes/configure and admin/includes/configure files where not written to

during installation.

When i manually configured them, had loads of trouble.

Unfortunately i have no answer for you. ones you have your config files ok, everything only appears to work!
