The e-commerce.

Images all broken - please help!


Recommended Posts

l need some advice...l am trying to set up osc for a client to replace her current website. However we can't delegate her domain name yet as her current store is dependant on it to keep running and her current hosts provide the shopping cart etc as part of the total package. l need to get her new store up and running on the new server (the new hosts have given me a predelegation address to work with) and then when the osc setup is finished and all the products loaded, we can redelegate the domain name.

My problem is that all the images are broken on the new installation. When l install the demo store with demo products, it loads fine, however once l try to add a product of my own the product images won't load. l get the 'warning, image not uploaded' message repeated about 10 times at the top of the admin screen. Then when l check back at the frontend, the demo images are now all broken too.

l'm not sure what is causing it - the images are being loaded as l can see them on the server, and the link to them seems to be correct, but for some reason they're not showing in the store. Could this be due to the domain name not being delegated yet? (l don't see why, but l am clutching at straws here....LOL) l am really worried that l won't be able to test the new store live until it's time to use it, and l won't get a chance to fix the bugs.

l've just thought...would l be better building the store directly on my own domain and just moving it afterwards? At least then l've removed one variable?


Any thoughts would be very much appreciated
