Problems with left column? strange thing...

Recommended Posts

I have been doing some testing on some IBM systems and on some computers the website works fine, but on others computers the website would constantly take you back to the guest and login page when any catagory link is clicked on the left column, therefore making the end-user unable to shop or browse products.. anybody have any idea on how to solve this problem?

 

I'm still very new with php please bare with me...

 

is there a way where i could just copy over a file (ie...column_left.php) and would this solve the problem?

 

could it be a cache problem?

 

here is the url to the website My Webpage

 

Any help is greatly appreciated thanks!

Interesting problem but how the site works is not dependant on a particular machine only on the server unless we are talking about client side scripting such as javascript, the different machines you are on may not have cookies enabled or other nuinces also how are you stroing your session information in the database or on your server (not sure if this last part has any effect just curious).

I don't know where the sessions are stored, how can i find out?

 

hmmmm.. I just tried setting the privacy and settings to not accept any cookies from any sites and high security level. I tested this on a computer that I know for sure has no problems as described in my last post. And when I was viewing my site it had no problems.

 

The site had problems when it was viewed in a building that has a lot of security lets just say... (ie..a bank) has anybody heard of this or come across a similar problem? It wasn't only 1 computer that had the same problem it was most of computers in the building...

probably a firewall or something preventing the downloading of cookies from websites or something to that effect you will need to consult someone more savvy than me to resolve this

 

and if Iam not mistake the setting for storing sessions in database or on a folder should be located in catalog/includes/configure.php

okay I've also checked other sites that were built or uses oscommerce as well and those sites come out just fine, could it be something with my index.php file?

 

this is so strange? it's really bothering me..

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've opening up my configure.php file in my configure.php file it says...

 

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'

?>

 

so I'm guessing this means it's stored in my database?

It worked 1 out of 15 tries. If it were a firewall then why do the others sites that are based on OSC work fine? Something is really not right here...

 

Is there a simple solution to this and how can i investigate more?

 

Open to any suggestions.. and thanks for the quick replies..
