New Install

 

Step 1: Database Import

 

A test connection made to the database was NOT successful.

 

The error message returned is:

Please click on the Back graphic to review your database server settings.

 

If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company.

The script is the tables for the database but you have to create an empty database before installation

OK :oP i did that a it connected to the database, my next error is at the install page.

New Install

 

Step 2: osCommerce Configuration

 

The following error has occurred:

 

 

The configuration files do not exist, or permission levels are not set.

 

Please perform the following actions:

cd /usr/local/apache/htdocs/catalog/includes/

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php

 

cd /usr/local/apache/htdocs/catalog/admin//includes/

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php

 

i have done what it says, and even changed the mod to 777, still didn't work?

 

Thanks in advanced.

You have a trailing slash in your admin address that shouldn be there:

 

/usr/local/apache/htdocs/catalog/admin//includes/

Is your admin directory *inside* your catalog folder?.... if not, you must change the path during install - the script probably cannot find your admin/includes/configure.php

the problem was something was wrong with the configure.php files in catalog and catalod/admin. what i did to fix this problem was i downloaded the package again, copied the configure files into the catalog and catalog/admin, followed the instructions of screen, touch configure.php, etc....... and it worked :)

 

but does anyone have a solution to my new problem? i can access the configuration part of the admin setup, pls read other post.

 

thanks.

They are images.... you will find them in your catalog/images/infobox directory... open them in an image editor and change the colours...

if i have a live database online with the catalog, ppl are adding to the data live, e.g. members signing up, etc... Can i work on a local copy of that database on my server, then upload my database to the live database, while still keeping the online database data... I want to update prices localy and not on the web server hosting my catalog, then upload the database to the web server and add my new prices to the live database????

 

Can the catalog run with out the admin folder??

 

Thanks in advanced,

Mark...
