I followed the installation steps at WIKI.

 

BUT, OS COMMERCE gives me this error at step 1 - this is what I'm looking at:

 

"New Install

 

Step 1: Database Import

 

The following error has occurred:

 

SQL file does not exist: fastbikes.us/catalog/install/oscommerce.sql"

 

My problem is that this is where the "oscommerce.sql" file is located. I don't understand this - has anyone come across this?

fastbikes.us/catalog/install/oscommerce.sql
That's a relative directory (no / at the start), but the question is relative to where. Since the install runs from the install directory, it may be looking in install/fastbikes.us/catalog/install/oscommerce.sql for your sql file. Just a guess.

In olden times the men were made of iron and the ships were made of wood; now it's the other way around. :wink:

Hmmm...

 

Thanks for the help, but no luck adding / before fastbikes.us

 

My web address is http://www.fastbikes.us so fastbikes.us would be the main root...

 

right?

 

Or am I telling OSC to go to the wrong place??? :?

I think you are telling osC the wrong place. My web address is http://www.arbucklechurch.org, but the root directory is /www/arbucklechurch. It varies from hosting company to hosting company, but I wouldn't expect the domain name to be the root directory.

He is right, you need to enter the server path, not your domain name. Easiest is just accept the default that OSC enters, it it usually right. If your not sure, you can double check by checking out your base_opendir path in your phpinfo(); file. Save this file as info.php and upload it to your server then type http://www.yourdomain.com/info.php and look for your open_basedir towords the bottom.
