The e-commerce.

Error "Index of /"


Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm very new around here. I have a simple question. I install on my domanin an oscommerce 2X and it's ok. But when I want to acees my site, I see


"Index of /


* .cpanel/

* .fantasticodata/

* .lastlogin

* .spamassassinenable

* .sqmailattach/

* .sqmaildata/

* .trash/

* catalog/ ".


I move the index.php on public_html from /catalog but is more errors like this.

Some ideas? Thank you!

Your store was installed into the "catalog/" directory, which is the usual configuration. Put index.php back there. You have two problems to address:

1. Visitors can look in your root directory, because it has no "index" file, and

2. Visitors need to be redirected from / to /catalog


If you are on an Apache server (any Linux installation, some Windows installation), add the following to your /.htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_URI}  !^/catalog  [NC]
RewriteRule  ^(.*)$  /catalog/$1  [L]

Note that you may have to add other RewriteCond lines to exclude robots.txt, favicon.ico, and various error documents which you will be eventually adding. Also note that this does not work for Windows/IIS servers.


An alternative, which would also work on an IIS server, is to instead create a file /index.html:

   <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=/catalog/index.php" >
   <title>Redirecting to Store</title>
<p>Redirecting to store. If this does not happen immediately, 
<a href="/catalog/index.php">Click Here</a>.</p>

Don't forget that both your configure.php files need to define that the store is in "catalog/" and not "/"
