Weird Error when Adding Products

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

I had a shopping cart which was almost ready to go live. I went back to reconfigure some shipping details with the products, and as I tried to save an edit I was presented with the following error:

 

"

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /catalog/admin/categories.php on this server.

 

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

"

 

I've tried a fresh reinstall and deleted and recreated the attached database.

 

I'm still getting the same errors.

 

 

Any help or enlightenment is appreciated.

You need to have permissions of 755 on your folders, 644 on your files.

 

Occasionally, with some hosts, their servers are set up so poorly that you have to use 777 for some folders, which is a major security risk.

 

It may also be that your hosting company has not set up the Ownership of permissions correctly. I've known cases where they are owned by Apache, which is the server and only available to the server, and not User which is what they should be.

How and what were you editing? If you were using the admin filemanager, it could have caused errors.

Cheers Vger, I'll take a look at it now.

What's perplexing is that it *was* working, then randomly decided not to. I thought it'd be either one or the other, but we'll have a look.

The cart *is* on fairly cheap hosting though, so that may play some part. It certainly doesn't have the problem in an exact same configuration on my own server >_<

Categories, through the admin category screens.

It's the only thing I have problems with.

Alright, it's finally decided it wants to add products correctly after 2 different installs where I went through afterwards and manually changed the permissions.

 

It's now decided that each item is actually going to be "$0.00" regardless of the price entered [the price also shows up in the admin category view, but still not on the main catalog view] nor will it charge the user shipping.

Have you changed or deleted currencies?

Yeah, I did change the name of the US Dollar currency. I thought it might be something silly like that. I've made sure it's set as the default currency though, so I'm not sure what's going on.

Perhaps I need more sleep :<

The code is USD, name does not matter.

Eurgh, I can't seem to find a way to edit my post, so apologies for double posting.

 

I've reinstalled it 4 times during the past hour and a bit.

 

Each of them with different databases etc. Each one cannot add a category or item etc once it's installed. I'm guessing it's almost entirely an issue with the hosting (the client is using a cheap plan that was with their previous website) so I'm not sure where to turn.

 

If there is a magical fix that makes it work that I haven't been told about - that'd be awesome. But for now I think I'm going to have to start talking about getting new hosting >_<
