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

I am installing osCommerce 2.2 on windows 2000 with a mySQL database.

On step 3 of the installation process, I get the following error:

 

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

 

The file is there, and i've set necessary permissions on it.

 

 

Anybody else receive this error and figured out how to fix it?

thanks for any suggestions

If you upload the file into MySQl some other way (e.g. phpMyAdmin), you will be able to install by telling it to not import the database (choice on second screen of install).

I had problems too. Manually load the file in phpMyADMIN.

 

I think if you put the file in c:\install\oscommerce.sql it might work - don't ask. Windows and ISS is stupid.

I tried to import my oscommerce.sql file manually, and it worked, but I didn't know what settings to put fot the configuration. Mainly the www root directory. I am just not sure, but the full directory to my oscommerce catalog is C:\FoxServ\www\oscomerce\catalog

If only I was the one helping you...

You can still run the install after importing the SQL file manually, you just have to tell it not to import the database (first page is install/upgrade choice; second page lets you choose if you want to import the database and something else).
