osCommerce

The e-commerce.

I'm new, but not completely inept (at least I hope I'm not)

I just installed the latest version of osCommerce through my web host's automatic installation in cpanel.

According to the insrtuctions on the default homepage I should be able to change the script (customize the words,colors and formats etc) through tools>file manager and clicking edit on the index.php file.

When I do this it gives me the following error message:

 

Error: I can not write to this file. Please set the right user permissions on: /home/pigtails/public_html/shoppingcart/includes/languages/english/index.php

 

Any ideas?

whoa a tough one, :wink:

depeding on your level of expirience you might want to concider another way of editing your files.

But you can accomplish this by logging to your cpanel

than going to file managment, than finding the file in question

shoppingcart/includes/languages/english/index.php

and changing the premission to 777 (all check marks selected)

than again it is possible in other ways, such as an ftp software etc.

But my opinion is try something else, other than the file manager,

if you use that you'll need to reset premissions on all files you plan to edit.

Hope this helps :wink:

if you need more help let me know

I was able to reset the permission on that single file, but like you said I would have to do it on every file. You suggest trying something else. What would allow me to edit the files without having to change the permissions on each one?

Usually Osc installed direct from a control panel, is generally an out of date version of Osc. It would be more beneficial to you in the ling run to download an up to date version from this site, and install it yourself.

well you would need some sort of an html/php editor,

you would need an ftp software.

What you need to do is using an ftp download all the files

to your local drive, than edit them as want, and upload them

back to your server :wink:

Sounds simple enough i hope :?:

i cant really reccomend any editors, or ftp software, but there is

many great programs out there, many are free or open source,

so look around for them, i know there are threads in this forum about some of this i would try looking in the General Chit-Chat, i think i saw

some thread about that there :wink:
