The e-commerce.

Categories and articles site not loaded


Recommended Posts



I have to change my hoster. Currently my shop is running on the old host, and I started to migrate to the new host.

I 'm switched now on a virtual server suse linux, where I have to administrate everything by my self.


After enabling register_globals the shop in /catalog/index.php looks fine, but it does not work.

Clicking on a category does have no effect, it just reloads /catalog/index.php

Same behaviour in the admin section, when clicking on the left menu items.


But the bestsellers list (in the online shop) and the numer of customers and articels in the administration site show correct values.

So values can be read from the DB.


I recognized the following:

This part is missing .../catalog/index.php?cPath=22&osCsid=17d16e86c51bb6220be3386a108965f0


It just shows .../catalog/index.php?cPath=22 .

The error_log on the server does not show anything.


I also compared the entries in table session:


Shop on old server (works just fine)




Shop on new server: (not working anymore)




Server old:

Apache/2.2.9 (Debian)

PHP Version 5.2.6-0.1~lenny1

MySQL Client API version 5.0.51a



Server new:

Apache Version Apache/2.2.4 (Linux/SUSE)

PHP Version 5.2.6

MySQL Client API version 5.0.45



Please help, cause time is running out, and I need to move to the new host as soon as possible.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Sinbadsurf, did you manage to resolve this?


I've come accross the same problem.


I backed up the database and the site from the old service provider, copied the files to the new service provider and imported the database. Then I changed my config files to match the new database login details.


As with your store, I can see the home page fine, complete with top sellers and categories, but clicking them just reloads the home page.


Any pointers that you could give would be a bonus!
