Hello,

 

I would greatly appreciate any help I can get here. I am very new at this. I just uploaded the oscommerce files to my hosting server. The instructions said :

 

Using your favourite browser, go to the following address:

 

http://[your site]/catalog/install

 

and follow the instructions on the screen.

 

I followed the instructions... But I keep getting this error?

 

Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES)

 

 

I do not know what to put on the :

 

Database Server:

 

Database username

 

Database password

 

Database Name:

 

I know my database server...I am taking thats my hosting ip correct??

 

But what else do I put in the other spots.. I am so lost..

Hello,

Well, during the install Oscommerce. there will be a chack box that ask if want oscommerce to create the DB for you. yes you want that.

Now, name your db. You will have to have a username and password for the DB before you do this. ask your host what your password and username is. in most cases fro DB location it's "localhost" .

 

here is the sernerio:

 

Step 1

Import Catalog Database:  

Install the database and add the sample data
Checking this box will import the database structure, required data, and some sample data. (required for first time installations) 
Automatic Configuration:  YES

Save configuration values: YES

 

Step 2:

Please enter the web server information:

WWW Address:  

The full website address to the online store
The web address to the online store, for example http://www.my-server.com/catalog/ 
Webserver Root Directory:  

The server path to the online store
The directory where osCommerce is installed on the server, for example /home/myname/public_html/osCommerce/ 
HTTP Cookie Domain:  

The domain to store cookies in
The full or top-level domain to store the cookies in, for example .my-server.com 
HTTP Cookie Path:  

The path to store cookies under
The web address to limit the cookie to, for example /catalog/ 
Enable SSL Connections:  

Enable secure SSL/HTTPS connections (requires a secure certificate installed on the web server)

 

Step 3: Still with me on this?

Secure WWW Address:  If you have the cert installed ONLY

The full website address to the online store on the secure server
The secure web address to the online store, for example https://ssl.my-hosting-company.com/my_name/catalog/ 
Secure Cookie Domain:  

The secure domain to store cookies in
The full or top-level domain of the secure server to store the cookies in, for example ssl.my-hosting-company.com 
Secure Cookie Path:  

 

Step 4:

Database Server:  I USE LOCALHOST HERE

Hostame or IP-address of the database server
The database server can be in the form of a hostname, such as db1.myserver.com, or as an IP-address, such as 192.168.0.1 

Username:  GET THIS FROM YOUR HOST

Database username
The username used to connect to the database server. An example username is 'mysql_10'.

Note: Create and Drop permissions are not required for the general use of osCommerce. 
Password:  GET TGIS FROM YOUR HOST

Database password
The password is used together with the username, which forms the database user account. 
Database Name:  

Database Name  WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL YOUR DB YOU CAN USE ANYNAME YOU WANT
The database used to hold the data. An example database name is 'osCommerce'. 
Persistent Connections:  NO

Enable persistent database connections.

Note: Persistent connections should be disabled for shared servers. 
Session Storage:

 

Step 5: This will happen. do you have shell or telnet access? some host will allow your FTP program to set permissions. CuteFTP is a good program for this. right click on the file and use commands CHMOD

 

The following error has occurred:


The configuration files do not exist, or permission levels are not set.

Please perform the following actions: 
cd /www/docs/frontier/catalog/testingserver/includes/
touch configure.php
chmod 706 configure.php
cd /www/docs/frontier/catalog/testingserver/admin/includes/
touch configure.php
chmod 706 configure.php

If chmod 706 does not work, please try chmod 777.

If you are running this installation procedure under a Microsoft Windows environment, try renaming the existing configuration file so a new file can be created.

 

Step 6: DONE!

 

Give that a try...... HTH

Hello,

 

Thanks for the prompt response...

 

I did what you said.. I created the hosting account. So I used the same username and password that I used when I created it..

 

I still get this error?

 

Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES)

 

what is the @ns2.flnoc.com The host132 is the username but that last part.. Where did that come from..

 

I can send you the login to my hosting and the web address if that might help a bit...

 

thanks a bunch

NEVER SEND ANYONE YOUR LOGIN & PASSWORD INFO!!!! NEVER!!!!

*********************************************

ok, the error is that the password is incorrect. host132 is your db usermane. What host are you using? I will look at there docs and see if I can help.

 

but again, NEVER send ANYONE your login and password info.....

not eveyone has morals.

 

ns2.flnoc.com >>> thats the host. could be that you have to set up server path instead of localhost to ns2.flnoc.com. i don't really know. I would have to look at the host Help docs.
