Recommended Posts



Im trying to install osCommerce but having problems.


I've installed php and mysql, created the database

I go to http://localhost/catalog/install/index.php, all the ' Server Capabilities ' are ticked so i click continue

enter the database settings and click continue

and i get the following message

The database structure is now being imported. Please be patient during this procedure.

unfortunately this message stays on forever and i never get the opporuntity to set anything else up.


Can you help / advice me ?

I found that even though I had set up everything using FastCGI, it wasn't working. Under Handler Mappings, I did the action "Add Script Map..." and added php-cgi.exe there and left the FastCGI Handler in place as well. I'm trying to figure out why this is working, but have yet to discover the reason.


Try that, might work for you.
