Category & Product Images won't show up!


Recommended Posts

:angry: I'm a newbie, please have patience with me.

I have several IMAGES folders. I have put the same .jpg file in all of them because I can't figure out which one it's looking for. When I browse for my .jpg file it goes to my hard drive when I choose my picture there it doesn't work. When I manually type in the path /images/s&p-scarlet.JPG it doesn't like that either. At the top in a pink bar it has:

Error: Catalog images directory does not exist: /catalog/images/ I do have an IMAGES directory within my CATALOG directory. Below is my Admin/Includes configure.php file Please HELP I'm very frustrated!!!

Hi, I am not one of the oscommerce gurus so am not sure if I am pointing you in the right direction and it has been a while since I first installed. Anyway, I compared your code to mine and found that I had my website in here:


define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', '');



as in you would have:


define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'http://www.baehrsden.com');

define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'http://www.baehrsden.com');


Not sure if that is the cause and I was wondering if you also checked your catalog/includes/configure.php file other then the admin one?


One other thing I just thought of is I believe you need to make sure all the image folders have the correct permissions. Have you done all of the post installation instructions found here?:




Hope this helps! Post back if not.

Hi, I just peeked one last time and noticed when I clicked on any page it goes to this:




Notice there is no " / " between .com and index.php as it should look like this:




In my catalog/includes/configure.php I have part of it with just "/ " in there as follows:


define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/');


Maybe that will do it. There is certainly something amiss here! If I am on the wrong trail, maybe one of those smarter oscommerce people will chime in. I will check in tomorrow, but gotta go to bed now.


Best Regards and let me know how you make out!
