The e-commerce.

Moving servers


Recommended Posts



I am moving an old version of osCommerce to a new server. The old machine had php 4 and mySQL4. The new version is running both php4 and php5 and mySQL5.


I finally got the admin to come up and it loads all of the pages EXCEPT the configuration section - that gives me an ISE 500.


I can't get the store side to come up at all, it gives me a SQL error.


So I assume it's the mySQL difference, but I'm not sure how to fix it. I did a WHM/Cpanel transfer from another server type (I am the server admin) so it automatically transfers over the site, databases, etc. I just had to edit the two configure files.


Am wondering if I should try to export and import the database manually?


Any ideas are appreciated!

For the server 500 error look in your server logs to help track down the source of the error.


For the mySQL error - posting details of the error would help us to help you, however this thread may help you
