Hello everyone, recently my oscommerce crashed and i had to delete it all and create a new one. This time i decided not to go thorugh my host and install my own new version (my host uses an old version). I uploaded the whole catalog folder though FTP in ASCII mode just like the manual says, after uploading everything i go to www.nonos-jewelry.com/install/install.php and the install menu opens up i insert all my information everything checks out fine and i get to the last page where it says installation complete. On the bottom of the page i see 2 boxes 1 is catalog the other is admin. When i click these all i get is a error page saying page cannot be displayed, for both admin and catalog. Why is this happening? i reuploaded and reinstalled it about 5 times now. i have my database and everything set up everything works installation was sucsessful according to the install screen. Any ideas? i remmeber reading where you had to delete the .htaccess or something for it to work but i cant even find that file. Any ideas would be helpfull..

 

 

THank You

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

thats a different one i installed stright through my host i dont want that one.... the one that doenst work is.... http://www.nonos-jewelry.com/teststore/catalog and also http://www.nonos-jewelry.com/teststore/catalog/index.php that one for some reason goes back to my install page even though i already installed it through there. The reason i dont want the one through my host is because they use a old version and i want the new Rc2 version...

If you don't have the DB parameters set correctly, it will go back to the install.

 

Code from application_top.php

 

// include server parameters
 require('includes/configure.php');

 if (strlen(DB_SERVER) < 1) {
if (is_dir('install')) {
  header('Location: install/index.php');
}
 }

You are.

 

But it looks like the DB parameters aren't getting saved when you install (just a guess).

 

If they don't get saved, when you try to access your store it will pop you back to the install program.

 

Frankly, I don't get it either....

:blush:

Look at the bottom of your /includes/configure.php file:

 

// define our database connection
 define('DB_SERVER', '*******'); // eg, localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
 define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', '******');
 define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '******');
 define('DB_DATABASE', '******');
 define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false'); // use persistent connections?
 define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'

The lines I put ******* in need to be populated correctly.

Well, you've already done the install more than once I take it.

 

Just check to see what the file has in it now.

 

If you correct it, you may not have to install again.

yeh i did it maybe twice but still when i click the catalog or admin link i get PAGE cannot be displayed error page...

 

This is just a guess but, why don't you try to compare the old and new config files to make certain that you are using all the same parameters. Also, check with your host. Some hosting companies can tell you the problem but may or may not be allowed to help when you install it as a third party cart. My host also uses an older version. I had trouble installing it myself. They had to make a couple 'fixes' on their end before I could install it as a third party cart. If it isn't in your config files, check with your host or go into your v-deck or control panel and look at your error logs. They may point you in the right direction as well.
