osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Odd redirections from Shopping Cart and Home Pages

Recommended Posts

My ISP requires that I have osCommerce installed in 2 directories, one normal and one secure. In the last 2 days I did a fresh install of 2.2-rc2a into each, both using the same database, and restored the latest sql backup from the previous 2.2-ms2 install.

 

The link to Checkout on the Shopping Cart page correctly formats the link to the secure site, but when this is clicked the browser is redirected back to the Shopping cart page. There are other examples as well, such as being redirected back to the home pages as guest after attempting a log on.

 

Does anyone have any quick and obvious answers to this one?

Dump that host. Dump them right now. Dont listen to any B.S. they feed you. The set up is wrong and its BS they even try to make someone go through that crap. Are you gonna edit everything twice becuase some assjack cant set up a server correctly? It will be nothing but troubles down the road. You should demand a refund too. Host are too plentiful.

Mind sharing with us who it is?

Nice idea guys, but despite recommending to my client that they do just that, they haven't. I have a few ideas as to how to resolve this - configure osCommerce to serve http:// from the secure filesystem, create a link to the secure directory in the non-secure root etc.

 

Will keep you posted.

Hmmmm, a dedicated client. That can be a problem. I dont know why people want to be so attatched to a host sometimes. Ever think of dumping the client? :huh:

No, it's down to me to solve the problems - besides, the rewards are attractive.

 

The ISP doesn't have a nice web based MySQL admin console and has truly ancient versions of php and MySQL. So any MySQL queries must be done through command line. I won't begin to bore you with their level of technical knowledge or service. As an example I installed osCommerce for this client in 2004, and ended up having to write a php api and payment module for the ISP's merchant interface. They've only just got round to creating their own payment module despite osCommerce being so popular, and guess what, some of that code looks very familiar!

 

Anyway, I solved the redirection problem by creating a link in the non-secure document root to the catalog directory in the secure document root. Works a treat - problem solved.

And yet, it would have been 2 minutes work, tops, for the host to make a config change on the domain so that osCommerce on your customers site would work correctly.

 

Did you ask the host to do this? I've never known a host to say "no".
