The e-commerce.

Lost session id checking out


Recommended Posts



Just downloaded and installed osc on myWin2000 laptop to test (localhost).

PHP 4.2.0

Apache 1.3.24


Everything seemed to install ok but when I click 'Checkout' from shopping cart page I lose my session details. When I hover my mouse over the Checkout button I can see that the URL doesn't include the session id.


Tried storing session id's in files and database - but made no difference.


I tried changing to force cookies = true - but then I receive an error in osc about my browser needing to support cookies. However, I have cookies enabled and they work fine on other sites (ie 5.5).


Any ideas?

Here's an update: Just tried the demo on the oscommerce.com site and it works fine (seems to create cookies no problem).


I guess I have 2 questions:

1) why aren't cookies working for me?

2) without cookies, why is the session id not being passed from the shopping cart to the checkout page?
