New Installation Errors ( Novice User Need Non-Geek Speak Help )


Recommended Posts

I installed osC using an Application Installer supplied by the hosting service.


When I completed the install, and selected Catalog, the warnings ( included below ) appeared at the top of the screen, above the "store". Selecting Administration just displays the same errors.


What do I need to do to fix these problems?


I am a complete novice with osC.

I am also NOT a programmer.


I really need to communicate with someone who can explain this matter to me in non-geek speak.

Make certain that the last 'define' line in your includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php files are set to 'mysql' as below:


define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'



@ dmnalven

Thank you very much for your reply.

I fear I have a server issue that needs to be cleared up first.

I hope to have this under control by tomorrow, and I will try an fresh install at that time.


Thank you again. :D

And, I will note your suggestion above incase the fix is not solved by the server.
