The e-commerce.

Installation on Win98 with Sambar


Recommended Posts

hello together,


i have some problems with the installing of osCommerce.

my system is:

Windows 98se

Sambar V6.0

PHP 4.0.6

MySQL 4.0.18

osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 (=osc)


it all runs very fine, except osc.


my problems are:


1) i didnt find a useable guide which explains the installation on a local system


(i tried myself to install by exctracting the osc-zip-file and copying it into my project-folder. is that right???)


2) when i try to open any osc-file in my browser i get this message:

"FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini, please enable it!".


(i searched with google and in several forums but i cant find a solution. i tried first changing the registered_globol from off to on, second activating the .htaccess in the osc-folder. but it doesnt work!)


has anybody an idea, solution, experience...???

that one shows you how to do a complete installation of apache, php, mysql, then installing oscommerce is a piece of cake. so with that in mind, what exactly are you trying to do?


if you read thru the section on php, you will find your answers as to where the files should go as well as register globals.

wont matter whether you work with apache or not, as I saw your php and you must have php 4.3 or higher. so you have a few choices, use the one i gave you, download phpdev which installs all, or . . . .
