Catalog images broken in Admin

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I have been struggling with this for the past two days and I need help. I want the Admin section to have SSL protection and made the following change to admin/includes/configure.php:

 

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://secure24.vosn.net/~aztecrug'); // eg, http://localhost or - https://localhost should not be NULL for productive servers

 

I am in SSL mode but I get the following error message on the top of the screen when viewing the catalog pages:

 

Error: Catalog images directory does not exist: /home/venture/public_html/catalog/images/

 

Then I made the following change:

 

define 'DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/aztecrug/public_html'); // where your pages are located on the server. if $DOCUMENT_ROOT doesnt suit you, replace with your local path. (eg, /usr/local/apache/htdocs)

 

This got rid of the error, but I still can't see the images when viewing the products. When I view the properties of the broken image, here is where it is trying to pull the image from:

 

https://secure24.vosn.net/catalog/images/98-85.jpg

 

Here is most of the code from admin/includes/configure.php. Please advise on what I need to do to have the images appear as they did before I made the change to view through the secure server:

 

// define our webserver variables 

// FS = Filesystem (physical) 

// WS = Webserver (virtual) 

 define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://secure24.vosn.net/~aztecrug'); // eg, http://localhost or - https://localhost should not be NULL for productive servers 

 define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'http://aztecrugs.com'); 

 define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://secure24.vosn.net/~aztecrug'); 

 define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true'); // secure webserver for catalog module 

 define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/aztecrug/public_html'); // where your pages are located on the server. if $DOCUMENT_ROOT doesnt suit you, replace with your local path. (eg, /usr/local/apache/htdocs) 

 define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '/admin/'); 

 define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT . DIR_WS_ADMIN); 

 define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/catalog/'); 

 define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT . DIR_WS_CATALOG); 

 define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_IMAGES', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'images/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'boxes/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/'); 

 define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'includes/languages/'); 

 define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/languages/'); 

 define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'images/'); 

 define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/modules/'); 

 define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'backups/');

 

Thank you in advance,

Mark

are these the default images that are supplied with osc? clicking on ur link leaves to believe that the directory and/or image does not exist on the server.

I have solved my problem.

 

I changed this line in admin/includes/configure.php to:

 

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_IMAGES', '/~aztecrug/catalog/' . 'images/');

 

This correctly completes the URL so all catalog images are found.

 

Thanks,

Mark

If you have a shared SSL server and have a problem with broken image links, you can also turn the following line in your catalog/admin/configure.php file:

 

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/catalog/'); // absolute path required

into:

 

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/~yoursite/catalog/'); // absolute path required

 

which correctly assigns the 'DIR_WS_CATALOG_IMAGES' variable the correct catalog path.

 

Same difference, but without replacing code.

 

Just remember to also change

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://yoursite.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

to

 

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://shared.ssl.server/~yoursite'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

OMG...this and several thousand other posts SAVED me. After hours upon hours of trying to configure my shared SSL - I finall y got EVERYTHING working. I am going to write up exactly what I used and share in hopes of it saving others the hours I (and countless others) put into getting this right. So simple but so NOT.

 

Thank you!!!

I have a strange one!

 

I've installed my shared ssl cert everything is running fine eventually and then I noticed a small hitch - In Admin using ssl some images aren't showing up - being the images in the Info box on the left when browsing the categories and the language flags.

 

I've also figured out what is wrong - those images not showing up have the wrong url path, but I can't figure out where to change that url path as 80% of the images are showing up fine(In admin ssl)

 

Any ideas? :'(

I have just uploaded all my products through the excel upload doc I found on the contributions. Everything uploaded exactly the way I wanted it to.

 

The only problem is the images. I can’t see the images at all. I only get red X's

 

Here is my online catalog: http://resourcesonline.us/osCommerce3/catalog/

 

If you click on the image and then go to properties I get the following extension: http://resourcesonline.us/osCommerce3/cata...04-XX.jpg:2::2:

 

But when I upload the images one by one through the OSC admin I get this extension :http://resourcesonline.us/osCommerce3/catalog/images/FUL1_AV22104-XX.jpg:2::2:

 

The part that says store// should not be there.

 

What I’m trying to do is get my images to work so that my customers can view them. How can I do this without having to do it one by one?

 

I uploaded all the images in the images directory and still the same problem. What do I need to do to correct this?

 

Thanks

When I go to catalog/admin/configure.php file I dont see anything inside. is there supposed to be something there? what Am I doing wrong?

 

Yuo mention lines and codes such as: define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/~yoursite/catalog/'); // absolute path required, but I dont even understand what all this means. Please frogive my ingorance Im very new at this.

 

Can yuo help me understand this a little more so I can get the concept donw and implement this?

 

I wold greatly appreciate it.

Also here is a link that im trying to get pics to be seen and with no success. Ive uploaded teh pics inside the images folder and the path I get when I right click on the image goes to store then images (http://resourcesonline.us/osCommerce3/catalog/images/store/Audio%20Cables/FUL1_BE112234-10.jpg) Im very cluelesss as t how t get these pictures to view.

 

Here is the link to my ecommerce page: http://resourcesonline.us/osCommerce3/catalog/

 

I have even went as far as creating a folder named store in the images folder to see if the path would fall into place. But for some reson no luck.
