The e-commerce.

Installation of Easy populate 2.76 in os commerce 3.0.

Recommended Posts

I am a newby to this, please let me know the steps/ information to do the following:


I am not sure if I have the 3 steps in step 2 completed?

I tried to set permissions to 777, It will not let me set it to that, it changes fine, but then changes right back to the default.


STEP #2 - Setup the "temp" folder


* The "/catalog/temp/" folder should be uploaded to (or created in) the root of your store (Beside the /admin/, /images/, and /includes/ Directories)

* Set the CHMOD permissions of this folder to 777, if you do not know how to do this, ask your host to do it for you. It can be done with a free FTP software called FileZilla (Goggle it), and it can be done in DreamWeaver. With FileZilla, right-click the /temp/ folder and select "File Attributes...", then set the permissions. In DreamWeaver, in remote view, right-click the folder and select "Set Permissions...", then set the permissions.

* If you need to change the location of the "temp" folder to some other location, you will need to edit the below define found near the top of the /admin/easypopulate.php file:


define ('EP_TEMP_DIRECTORY', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'temp/')




Then in step 3, How/ where do I add a link in the admin pannel?



STEP #3 - Add a link in the Admin Panel. Edit file "/catalog/admin/boxes/catalog.php"


Find this code (Around Line 25):

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES, '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_CATALOG_CATEGORIES_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES . '</a><br>' .


Directly AFTER add this:

'<a href="' . tep_href_link('easypopulate.php', '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">Easy Populate</a><br>' .



I am looking for step by step instructions on how to install this.


Please help me get this finished step by step so I can move on to the next project.

Wrong part of the forum.


This part is for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.x support.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
