The e-commerce.

Ive really dropped one this time - HELP


Recommended Posts

Hi peeps, in an effort to make the catalog appear at the top level, I followed the advice of someone and changed the define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', 'catalog/'); in configure.php to / instead of catalog. After moving my site up a level. I decided to put i back and now I get the error below. I reset the DIR_WS_CATALOG back to catalog but it doesnt work, I have made the code more readable to myself in an effort to fix the prob. Here is the current code. Also I think i Put the dirs/files back correctly but cannot be sure.



<?php/* osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions */

// Define the webserver and path parameters// *

// DIR_FS_* = Filesystem / directories (local/physical)

// DIR_WS_* = Webserver directories (virtual/URL)


define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://stueyb2u.phenominet.com');

// define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://stueyb2u.phenominet.com');

define('ENABLE_SSL', false); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?


define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', 'catalog/'); // absolute path required

define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');

define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/');

define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');

define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'boxes/');

define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/'); define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/'); define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/'); define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/'); define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'pub/'); define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/stueyb2u/public_html'); define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/stueyb2u/public_html/catalog/'); define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'download/'); define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'pub/');


The error


Parse error: parse error in /home/stueyb2u/public_html/catalog/includes/configure.php on line 6


Fatal error: Failed opening required 'DIR_WS_FUNCTIONSsessions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear') in /home/stueyb2u/public_html/catalog/includes/application_top.php on line 151

This may not solve it all, but try putting a slash in front of 'catalog':


define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/catalog/'); // absolute path required

define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');



... if you want to REALLY see something that doesn't set up right out of the box without some tweaking,

Its fixed (phew)


It was a number of things.


Firstly, the initial php opening brace had loads of crap in it. Secondly database.php was in the wrong folder and finally, as you said the slash sealed it :)


Thanks for that
