INSTALLATION IN WINDOWS ROOT FOLDER


indiannic

Recommended Posts

hi

 

server : windows 2003, iis 6, php 5 (recent version), mysql 5,

oscommerce latest version

 

note : the entire website is given complete NTFS read, write, modify permissions so there are no permission related issues.

 

our website

http://mydomain.com

 

website root

 

E:/inetpub/mydomain.com/www

 

we created a folder called store under the website root (www folder) and installed under

 

E:/inetpub/mydomain.com/www/store

 

the installation was perfect

 

after we finished we were able to access the catalog and adminstator links perfectly

 

 

##########

 

next we tried to install it directly under the www folder

 

it does not work though we followed exactly the same steps

 

the error message

 

Warning: require(includes/configure.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in E:\inetpub\mydomain.com\www\includes\application_top.php on line 28

 

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/configure.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in E:\inetpub\mydomain.com\includes\application_top.php on line 28

 

 

*** however the administrator link works correctly ***

 

we have tried this installation several times in root folder and the same error takes place

 

it seems that this error pertains to some peculiar behaviour when the files are present directly under the root folder -- since the catalog does not work while admin works.

 

 

(on linux servers the installation in webserver root folder works fine, however we need this mandatorily in our windows root folder)

 

if anybody has prior experience in installing in a windows website root folder please respond

 

 

thanks and regds

When you intall direct you have to copy the individual files and folders WITHOUT the folder *catalog* wrapping them. This was very hard for me to understand as well.

 

1. delete catalog folder under www.

 

2. Reinstall all of the files in catalog (without the folder) into www.

 

3. run the install from www.mydomean.com/www/install NOT www.mydomain.com/www/store/install

 

Hope that helps

mr earl

 

thank you for your reply

 

just to clarify when we placed oscommerce files under a folder called "store" under the website root folder then the installation started as such

 

 

###########

 

1. delete catalog folder under www.

 

>>>>>> yes this is what we had done.

 

2. Reinstall all of the files in catalog (without the folder) into www.

 

>>>>>> yes this is what we did.

 

3. run the install from www.mydomean.com/www/install NOT www.mydomain.com/www/store/install

 

 

>>>>>> yes this is what we had done.

we were able to complete the installation under the website root folder successfully but then we were getting errors when the oscommerce store home page (ie http://mydomain.com/index.php) was opened ...

 

Warning: require(includes/configure.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in E:\inetpub\mydomain.com\www\includes\application_top.php on line 28

 

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/configure.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in E:\inetpub\mydomain.com\includes\application_top.php on line 28

 

 

while the admin page (ie http://mydomain.com/admin/index.php) opens correctly..
