tcarter887 Posted February 17 Share Posted February 17 Ok so a few weeks ago I tried to install OSCommerce 4 directly on the server and was never able to get through the installation. It would get as far as creating the database tables and error out. I forget what the error was, but this isn't my problem now. At that time, I decided to install it locally instead. I installed Virtualbox and Ubunto, Apache and PHP, and was able to successfully install it locally. After that, I then copied the entire folder back up to the web server and changed the config files to point to the live database. The splash page worked, the Admin tool worked, but none of the example sites worked. I would get 404 errors when trying to go to the furniture store for example. So I found symlinks, originally created for /var/www/html so I deleted those and recreated new symlinks to the new folder location using Cpanel Cron jobs. And now the sites for Furniture, Printshop, Watch and B2b-supermarket are all working! But now my problem is the links inside of each of those sites are giving 404s. I can find no documentation on how OSCommerce uses symlinks. Seems I've moved from one hurdle to another. Do I have to manually create symlinks for everything now? Or do I have a permissions issue? Is there a way to run just the part of the installation that creates all the symlinks, and nothing else since I have everything else working? Here's the site.https://osc3.ramblerparts.com/ Thanks in advance! Tom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
