The e-commerce.

New Install failing - please help


Recommended Posts

I'm probably in over my head here - but here it goes....I installed the catalog and admin on the server. When I tried to use my browser to get to the http://myserver.com/catalog/install - the page comes up completely blank - I wasn't beat yet - I tried a manual install - I was able to install a database called "osCommerce" but when I try to browse for the "oscommerce.sql" file, or, enter the install code given in the instructions:


mysqladmin create osCommerce

mysql osCommerce < ./install/oscommerce.sql


this is what I get:


Database osCommerce running on localhost












MySQL said:



You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'oscommerce.sql' at line 1



Any help would be most appreciated! -

This has been interesting - I went back one more time and hit "browse for file" - this time it worked - I'm looking at the db right now BUT....


I still just get a bunch of text when I go to myserver/catalog - I just can't seem to access the catalog file at all.


Server info is Redhat Linux. The login page says php3 and the phpMyAdmin is 2.2.6 - (that's an old one, isn't it?) it's mysql 3.23.56


I hope I'm answering your question.


Any ideas why I can't get to the catalog/index.php page with a browser? Or at least, why it's not displaying correctly?
