The e-commerce.

parse_url error


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have just begun working on my first oscommerce site and feel i have fallen at the first hurdle so to speak. When working through the installation guide at the final screen when a message is displayed saying finished, The installation and configuration was successful! e.t.c above this i am getting the following error message


Warning: parse_url(http://carparts.webdesignmullingar.comD:\\\\hshome\\\\webcraft\\\\carparts.webdesignmullingar.com\\\\catalog\\\\) [function.parse-url]: Unable to parse URL in D:\hshome\webcraft\carparts.webdesignmullingar.com\catalog\install\templates\pages\install_4.php on line 75


Can anyone tell why this is? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Look at the url:



osCommerce should detect the url automatically during the install, but in this case it looks as if you did not make the configure.php files writeable during the install, so it's all nonsense.


Drop all of the tables in the database and start again.
