The e-commerce.

Broken Images


Recommended Posts

Hello. I am very new to osCommerce and to eComm in general. (just to clear the air).

My girlfriends family owns a shop and I want to create an online store for them, but just for practice and a bit of fun, I installed apache,mysql,php, and osCommerce on my linux box to 'fool' around.

Anyways, the installation seemed to go fine. The problem I am having is when I attempt to view the catalog from a windows machine on my network (I don't think it has anything to do with windows but the information doesn't hurt) all the images are broken. But when I view it from my own machine

http://localhost/catalog then everything works fine. I've tried playing around with


but I don't think that is the issue of the images would be broken on both machines. At first I thought it was a permission issue but opening up the permissions wide open #chmod -rf 777 catalog doesn't help the issue either.

It could possibly be an apache issue too since I am using a stock/default install of apache.

Anyways, just hoping to shed some light on the issue.


P.S: Besides oscommerce.com is there some good documentation or knowledge sites that would be recommended to a beginner to this field?

P.S2: Besides fooling around on my own machine, is there any good places on the net that would allow me to install osCommerce for free (for non production purposes)

It seems as though that the reason why the pictures are not loading (at none of the links work either I just learned) is that all the images are pointing to the localhost in configure.php.

So, I changed that to its lan ip and bam she (osCommerce just seems like a she to me) is working.

Sorry if anybody reads this and I waste there time
