BUG - June SnapShot - Primary Address Missing


Irish

Recommended Posts

Lovely.

 

I've uploaded the latest snapshot, removed all my customers (just in case this helped) and I STILL have the following problem:-

 

create a new customer:

1)customer created

2)primary address is EMPTY apart from a single , (COMMA)

3)Address book does have the address I just typed in

4)I Can now Make this my primary address by clicking the check box

5)Can I buy anything?? NOPE Apparently theres no shipping to the US for this country despite the fact that er.. I have just sorted the Zone Info for US and CANADA and that this is the only shipping method enabled

6)After Pulling some hair out, I LOG OFF

7)Log back in

8)Hey! my shopping cart still has the thing I tried to buy. At LEAST that is actually working.

9) Try and buy it again

10) WHAT happens on CHECKOUT_SHIPPING ???? HURRAY!

 

Zone Rates

No shipping available to the selected country

 

How many hours of development has gone into OSCommerce and why is it such a piece of the preverbial? what does it take to get this thing actually working, and Why is it that no one actually OWNS UP to have got it sorted? Where is the STEP BY STEP guide to a BOG STANDARD INSTALLATION???????

 

I've spent so many hours trying to get this working, I could have bought 10 COMMERCIAL PACKAGES for the price it has cost me. IN FACT I suppose NO ONE will bother replying to this POST so I might just do that!

 

Hair on floor. pulled out of head.

Irish,

 

I realize your having a bit of trouble...However, ranting really isn't the way to motivate someone to come to your rescue.

 

To start, try deactivating your shipping module and reactivating it using the little green and red dots.....green for active and red for inactive. If that doesn't help......count to 10 and post again. :D

Trish, I don't know how much time you've spent customizing your installation yet, but if you are having trouble with the latest snapshot you might want to consider using MS1. The snapshots are work in progress, right on the cutting edge, kind of like beta versions of commercial software. You get to see what's coming but the MS1 version is more tested and stable. I installed it using the instructions in the readme file in the zip that you download and the only problem I have had has been that my "E-commerce ready, number 1 rated" hosting company didn't have there SSL working and didn't know how to fix it. After switching to a competent hosting company everything has worked flawlessly for me.

 

There is an MS2 version coming soon which should be the next stable version, but when it ain't broken don't fix it, so I may still stick with MS1.

 

P.S. - I hadn't heard it phrased quite like "piece of the preverbial". I think it's more politically correct to say "what the bird left on the rock". :D

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

I had trouble setting up my zones.I had to add each county of Ireland as a zone.Irelands counties are not preset.Do this in the admin page.

my main problem stems from the fact that MS1 just didn't set cookies correctly on my set up. I was told to go for a snapshot release because this would fix the problem, which it did.

 

however, I think I have opened a can of worms : What has happened, I think, is a the new 2.2 snapshot updates have been made to an underlying MS1 database. THIS is why the shipping address thing did not work : on create_account.php in MS1 you set the customer address to be '1', on latest snapshot, it becomes something like address$ because the table now is autoincrementing so its non longer gauranteed to be '1'.

 

When I undid this change (i.e. reverted back to setting it = 1), I got back the primary shipping address.

 

SO the question is : how much further database changes have been made? Should I be able to get away with this single small change and hope everythig works? or will i need to contact my ISP and tell them to update the database to latest version compliant : And how do I do that? is there an SQL Script that comes with the snapshot? because I didn't see it.

 

...And won;t that destroy all my products, etc that are in the MS1 compliant database?

 

hair still falling out

Unfortunately I don't know the answers to your questions. Make sure you backup your database so you won't lose anything.

I had these problem because I uploaded the latest snapshot and didn't changed the database.

Now the address_book table the field address_id is autoincrement. So just change to autoincrement and will works.
