The e-commerce.

Accessing the catalog/admin folder


Recommended Posts



I am new to oscommerce. A friend of mine asked me to help with his site. The original person who setup his site is not available. My friend is not technical so he knows nothing. I know a little .net, HTML, and SQL but nothing about PHP, Apache or open source.


My friend gave me his site link and password but I am not able to sign on. When I type in the URL and hit enter I get the following message:




You don't have permission to access /catalog/admin on this server."


Can someone guide me on what I can do next?


Thank you.

It is possible that the original coder made the security updates suggested and changed the admin folder name. Use the cPanel or a FTP program to access the files and check to see if the is an admin directory.
