The e-commerce.

host change problem


Recommended Posts

Hello world!

Im using osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 RC2a for my store and i just did change my webhost,cause the other one would soon expire.

So,i copied all the files ( with the 2 config files renewed ) to the new host and the database aswell,but there appears a problem. Admin area seems to work,but the index page of the store does not. l mean,do the file exist,when i try to open the store in my browser,i get the '404 - not found' error and i dont know what to do.


Any solutions ?

1) Check the root htaccess file to see if there is a redirect enabled.

2) Check to ensure your domain name is resolving properly.

3) Check to ensure ALL of the files have been uploaded to the new server (index.php especially)

Is your store using some sort of SEO modification, and you forgot to copy the .htaccess file from the old host to the new one? You may have to modify it if it refers to any paths or domain names that have changed during the move.
