I have spent 2 days trying to properly install osC ...

 

I tried the instructions from the WIKI installation guide. Got all messed up and I deleted the account and made a new one

 

My server supports oscommerce and downloaded the osC as instructed by the server. Now my files at the "file manager directory" looks like this:

 

 

 

File Manager

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Click on a Folder to navigate.

Click on a Name to view its properties.

 

/ (Current Folder)

Create New Folder

Upload file(s)

.trash 700

mail 750

public_ftp 755

public_html 755

tmp 700

www 755

Create New File

.addonscgi-osCommerce 0 k 644

.lastlogin 0 k 644

 

 

My public_html folder looks like this..

 

 

File Manager

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Click on a Folder to navigate.

Click on a Name to view its properties.

 

/ public_html / (Current Folder)

Create New Folder

Upload file(s)

Up one level

cgi-bin 755

osCommerce 755

Create New File

.htaccess 0 k 644

index.htm 0 k 644

 

 

 

Now how do I proceed?

By setting it up this way catalog=oscommerce

 

so under public_html you have the folder OScommerce and that's where it's installed

 

the url's are given, where you can acces the catalog and the admin

 

better change your password because it's public knowledge now

It isn't because someone else knows the answer, means I'm dumb, or is it?

Thank you for the answer...

 

Now what can I do so that I can hae my website up?

 

Your website is up it is here:

 

http://ecohimalaya.com/oscommerce/

 

If you want it to say http://ecohimalaya.com/catalog/ rename the "oscommerce" folder to "catalog" and then through your file manager go into the catalog/includes/configure.php file and wherever it says "/oscommerce/" in the settings change it to "/catalog/" and then change the permissions on the file to 644 or 444 and that will remove the warning at the top of the page. You will then want to do the same changes in your admin/includes/configure.php, ie. change all of the "/oscommerce/" references to "/catalog/" and then change the file permissions.

You might want to look at the final steps about "securing your installation" such as changing some of the permission on files such as configure.php, etc. as well as password protecting your admin side.

 

And all I now have to do is make a index file and upload it to the public_html file with a link to the..?

 

Yes that will work, just create an index.html file in your public_html folder linking to http://ecohimalaya.com/oscommerce/

http://ecohimalaya.com/oscommerce/
