The e-commerce.

Fixing error messages!


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set up an installation of OS Commerce (this is my first time so bear with me!)... it was installed directly by my service provider so i don't know a great deal about it's workings yet. Have followed the documentation all through the setting up and added a product, but when i look at my shop i have an error appearing in the top left corner of the page (using default template for the time being).


The error is as follows:


Warning: fread() [function.fread]: Length parameter must be greater than 0. in /mydomain/includes/functions/cache.php on line 60


I've tried looking in the file that it mentions but i can't see the function it refers to, nor do i know where the parameter is coming from in order to change it to something other than 0.... ? Can anyone help with this?


Also I am getting an error on the backups page:

 Error: Backup directory does not exist. Please set this in configure.php.


But the backup directory that the install has listed for this is the wrong path. How do i change this setting? and where is configure.php?


I would be grateful for any help, still don't know my way around OSCommerce, it's quite confusing and overwhelming at this stage!
