Database problem during installation


Recommended Posts



I'm having a problem installing osCommerce onto my website. When I have "import catalog database" checked on the first installation page, it said it could not find the sql file(even though it is on the website). Then if I don't check it, it said I don't have configuration table on my database.


I figure there might be 2 problems that cause this.

1. I already have an existing database with datas in it.

2. I try to run the installation file not from root page but from catalog folder.


Please help me out,

Thank you very much.

It found the database. When I create a configuration table in my database just for testing, it let me through and prints out a lot of warnings.


If anyone has seen a similar problem, please help.

There is a known problem with the install that appears in some situations. Try importing the database outside osCommerce (e.g. in phpMyAdmin) and run the install without the import.
