The e-commerce.

osCommerce not working after ISP update


Recommended Posts



I've had an install of osCommerce for a number of years without problems, yesterday my ISP updated their systems and now the site is not working properly. When the homepage of the store loads a bunch of code from store/index.php is being written to the page, I'm not sure how to go about correcting this. You can view the store and the problem here: http://store.jefflang.com.au/index.php


The ISP has provided me the following information showing the versions of the technologies installed on the server:


osCommerce 2.2-MS2

PHP 5.2.17 (cli) (built: Aug 14 2011 11:46:15)

Copyright © 1997-2010 The PHP Group

Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright © 1998-2010 Zend Technologies

with eAccelerator v0.9.6.1, Copyright © 2004-2010 eAccelerator, by eAccelerator

with the ionCube PHP Loader v4.0.9, Copyright © 2002-2011, by ionCube Ltd., and

with Zend Optimizer v3.3.9, Copyright © 1998-2009, by Zend Technologies

with Suhosin v0.9.32.1, Copyright © 2007-2010, by SektionEins GmbH


And the MySQL server version is: 5.1.56


If anybody can offer some assistance I'd be very grateful.

The tags are all written as "<?php" but thanks for your suggestion :-)


The directory structure changed from "/var/www/html/" to "/home/username/public_html" and the PHP scripts were updated by the ISP.


The following files were changed during the upgrade:




define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/webmaste/public_html/store/'); <--- ISP changed original code to this


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


There must be somewhere in the code that the script did not pick-up and change, also some of the pages are throwing up a 404 error ... any thoughts would be appreciated.
