The e-commerce.

Installation of Easy Populate Object not found!

Bit Stupid

Recommended Posts



New to OS Commerce and to this forum so please be gentle. Wanted to give OSC a try as the other options simply do not cut it. Found the extension Easy Populate. Sounded Great (new it would be a learning curve for me but willing and able), and after a few tries and muddling together the readme and the html instructions (even that took me a while to find!).

I am pretty new to all this stuff but managed to find my way around not too shabby.


I am running OScommerce 2.3.3 on Joomla 2.5.7 and linking it into my site with JFusion (dunno what other details you need?).


With some trial and error I managed to get the easypopulate to show up in my osc admin section. Proof attached!! (everything on localhost at the mo for development so no links sorry).



But when I click on it it just get an object not found error. Sorry if I am repeating something that is in Documentation but I have done as much research as I can and found nuffing.

Object not found!


The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.

Hoopla problem solved, on the readme I was thinking I needed to do these steps in the files in the EP files and as I could not find the filenames.php file I figured it was nonsense!! (w00t) Well it wasn't it just didnot actually tell me where I needed to do these steps (you need to do this in the OSCommerce files).


read the advice from Pupstar at http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/topic/367800-how-i-populate-my-oscommerce-231-with-my-products/


And add this to admin/includes/filenames.php


define('FILENAME_EASYPOPULATE', 'easypopulate.php');


Also a note for everyone else baffled at this point with EP - Readme step 2 should replace the documentation step#3


Readme step 3 should also come into play as well in the OSCommerce Files


To the guys at EasyPop - if you want me to re-write your intall instructions let me know, I can write it from a novice POV. It would be my way of giving back and is really needed as the folder names for easy Pop and for OSC are virtually identical so they need a bit of clarification.
