Download problem (httpdocsdownload folder not found)

Recommended Posts

I have been looking all around the web to get this fixed, without succes so far.

 

After I have added a product download (using every step in the tutorials available) and when I try to 'purchase' this, all goes well, but in the end there is no working download link! Instead, all the time the error message in the topic title appears.. The thing is, I do use the folder "download" under httpdocs, but not a folder called 'httpdocsdownload'.

 

So what am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks a lot for any help.

Nobody?

Please find below the error message which appears at the top of my site. The directory indeed does not exist, but then it shouldn't be asked for in the first place! Because via FTP I can see that the right folder location should be: httpdocs/download. SO why does it nag about 'httpdocsdownload' ?

Warning: The downloadable products directory does not exist: /var/www/vhosts/domain/httpdocsdownload/. Downloadable products will not work until this directory is valid.

 

Please help me out..

OK, anyone tearing their hair out on this one, I have found the solution. First use this tutorial: http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=236224

 

then, add this code to configure.php (within 'Includes')

 

define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', 'pub/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/var/www/vhosts/yourdomain/httpdocs/');

define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'download/');

define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'pub/');

 

then you're set. PEACE!

This sounds like exactly the solution I need, but my configure.php file is set as read-only. I can't edit it! HELP!!
