OS errors and non-understanding


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hello, and thanks in advance for any help with this matter. I am pretty new to PHP but am an aggressive learner and have made some major advances in my knowledge in the last few months. I am planning my next semester around full web design.

 

I am trying to setup an online store with OScommerce, and have made some real progress.

 

The problem is:

 

After I complete entering all my Mysql info and then "continue" on the setup, I get error messages relating to the chmod of my configure.php. I changed the permissions, but still getting red-letter erros on setup. I'm a bit confused. Maybe my directories are incorrect?? I'm sure someone knows the answer, and has probably seen this a million times, any help is apprechiated.

 

Thanks,

 

JR

Please be more specific about the error messages or warnings.

 

How did you attempt to change the permissions (what tool did you use, and what setting) for configure.php?

 

Did you change the permissions on both configure.php files (there is another in admin/includes)?

I did change the permissions (to 777 all access) on both files in both folders. I printed out the installation guide and have been using as a reference, but have not been able to resolve this. I included the exact error message below. I am hosting this on a Windows server, and tried a re-name too. Maybe I missed something (obviously). Hope this makes more sense:

 

New Installation

 

osCommerce Configuration

 

The following error has occurred:

 

 

The configuration files do not exist, or permission levels are not set.

 

Please perform the following actions:

cd /home/content/s/o/u/southeastweb/html/catalog/includes/

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php

cd /home/content/s/o/u/southeastweb/html/catalog/admin/includes/

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php

 

If chmod 706 does not work, please try chmod 777.

 

If you are running this installation procedure under a Microsoft Windows environment, try renaming the existing configuration file so a new file can be created.

You apparently chose 'persistent connections' in setup, which can be changed by editing admin/includes/configure.php near the end.

 

Change it to this:

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');
