osCommerce is teasing me. Can't install it (again) HELP!!!

osCommerce is teasing me. I initially installed it and to my surprise it worked with out a hitch. I played around with it for a while and decided that I'd use it as my production catalog (currently using Clickcartpro - too much administrative overhead)

 

To make a long story short I deleted the original installation and attempted to reinstall it. Now I'm getting the following error:

 

New Installation

 

Database Import

 

The following error has occurred:

 

SQL file does not exist: /install/oscommerce.sql

 

I've checked that oscommerce.sql is actually there, I've checked permissions on configure.php and I've worked for several hours trying to reinstall it. I have deleted the initial osCommerce database in /usr/local/mysql/var and have checked that mysql is running. Can't figure this out.

 

I was really looking forward to using osCommerce. (My only constellation is that it this wasn't a production rollout.)

 

ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks!

Ever wish people could recover from a "fatal error?"

It's a known error with the MS2 install. The simplest thing is to upload the database in a DB admin tool like phpMyAdmin and set the install to skip the database import.

Thanks! Matt. Hope the learning curve on phpMyAdmin is not to steep.

Thanks!
