installing pwa


Recommended Posts

By reading the instructions, using ftp to edit files or doing it on your PC then uploading them



ok. these are the instructions. 1) Execute the "common.sql" with PHPMyAdmin or another MySQL-Client, as well as "english.sql"


2) Use a file compare program to compare the included files.


Look for Code surrounded by // PWA BOF and // PWA EOF.


pretend i am an idiot. how do i execute .sql files AND once i find Code surrounded by // PWA BOF and // PWA EOF, what do i do with it?


thanks for any help.

How do I install PWA 0.910?

The included Install_Instructions.txt is pretty clear about hat to do. Eg, in part they say




Go into your server's backend and use a SQL tool such as PHPMYADMIN to run the following SQL scripts.


Make sure you have backed up your database first!!!




Run the included sql file pwa_install.sql




Manually run this script:


ALTER TABLE customers ADD purchased_without_account TINYINT(1) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL AFTER customers_id;

ALTER TABLE customers ADD INDEX (purchased_without_account);

INSERT INTO configuration_group VALUES (40, 'Accounts', 'Configuration of Account settings', 40, 1);

INSERT INTO configuration VALUES ('', 'Purchase Without Account', 'PWA_ON','true','Allow Customers to purchase without an account', 40, 1, '2003-04-08 13:07:44', '2003-04-08 12:10:51', NULL, 'tep_cfg_select_option(array(\'true\', \'false\'),');

ALTER TABLE orders ADD purchased_without_account TINYINT (1) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL;







WARNING: These step by step instructions for manual install are to a large extent new to v0.90(the instructions, not the code), and HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED FOR COMPLETENESS OR ACCURACY.


If you do a manual edit and then have problems with your site, please verify the changes you made against the code found in the included files.


You can either upload the included files thus overwriting your existing files, or you can do the changes to each file manually.


If you decide to do the changes manually please follow the instructions below. Step 2 has instructions for overwriting your existing files.


You still need to open some files and add some lines also, follow the instructions below and you should be ready in no time.



OPEN AND MAKE CHANGES IN THIS FILE: /catalog/account.php


at about line 17, change this:


tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, '', 'SSL'));


to this:


// begin PWA_0.910
//	tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, '', 'SSL'));
tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, 'my_account_f=' . $HTTP_GET_VARS['my_account_f'], 'SSL'));
// end PWA_0.910


the remaining edits are in the file.
