Made a mess of things

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Ellie and I'm a oscommerce idiot!,

 

I read loads of posts and am hoping you'll be able to advise me on what I have done wrong!

 

I have hosting through Telivo, I downloaded oscommerce and followed the instructions in the quick guide (at least I think I did ok).

 

I've had a lot of problems because I'm not the most adept computor wizard (I wrote my previous website using html)

 

first I seemed to have installed it properly, and even reached the stage where I could choose between catalogue and admin, but got thrown when I got error messages in pink when I accessed the catalogue. then it wouldnt work at all, so I deleated it off the server (via the FTP softwear) and tried to reinstall it as per instructions...................

 

 

5. Then go to http://www.yourdomain.com/install and begin the install procedure. Your DB Server will probably be 'localhost', your db user name and password (for mysql access) will have been provided to you by your web hosting company. The name of the database you already know - because you just set it up. Do not enable SSL, elect to store sessions in the database and not files (untick the box), and do not enable persistent connections.

 

6. After the install create a folder called 'backups' inside the 'admin' folder (via FTP), and delete the install folder. Reset permissions on the two configure.php files.

 

7. Password Protect your 'admin' folder using the Password Protect feature in your web hosting control panel.

 

Away you go!

 

Well now I can't seem to access my siteadmin section at all, http://www.yourdomain.com/install gets an error message, and now my FTP can't seem to connect to my server! I havent a clue whats gone wrong!

 

Any chance you could point me in the correct direction?

or do you know if anyone would be able to do it for me?

I saw you can get it installed free by certain servers if you have there hosting package, but I'd rather stick with Telivo. any ideas, I'm really struggling and would very much appreciate any help you can give.

Hello,

What is the URL of your web site? and is the osc store root or catalog? (www.url.com or www.url.com/catalog)

There are some errors thrown up by dfault on the index.php that say you need to delete the install directory and CHMOD some files, is this what you saw you think, if so the store was working.
