The e-commerce.

Wanting to modify an addon


Recommended Posts



I tried the line, but I get:


Notice: Use of undefined constant STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS


I want to display the email in an html page. So I'm trying to understand how to retrieve values from the database. I would like to use other values in the database as well.





and you will see the email address of the store owner, assuming he has inserted it in his admin area under configuration.


What exactly do you want to do with it?

I'm trying to modify an addon and I can't figure out how Os commerce assigns database entries to variables?




How do I use the variable: STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS?


The file is in a subdirectory ie /catalog/newmod/




This is not a database entry it is what is called a define.


example ..


define( 'MY_TEST', 'I am a test' );


The above allows me to do <?php echo MY_TEST; ?> and what is actually printed to screen is "I am a test"


If you look in the languages files (catalog/includes/languages/) you will see loads of these.


If you ever wonder in osCommerce what a capitalised string seperated by underscores is .. it is a define.

Rob - incorrect, very rarely!


This is a database entry, please see the configuration table, configuration id #3


Ooops too late, too tired, too tipsy. :)




In the configuration table of the database are also these capitalised strings with underscores, These are defined at run time in application by the following code ..


// set the application parameters
 $configuration_query = tep_db_query('select configuration_key as cfgKey, configuration_value as cfgValue from ' . TABLE_CONFIGURATION);
 while ($configuration = tep_db_fetch_array($configuration_query)) {
   define($configuration['cfgKey'], $configuration['cfgValue']);
