I'm trying to set up OScommerce on a webserver that supports it.

Database connectivity is fine. The tables were successfully imported. When I get to the point of configuration I get the following error:

Quote:
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/sites/site40/web/testcarts/oscommerce/catalog/includes/
touch configure.php
chmod 706 configure.php
cd /home/sites/site40/web/testcarts/oscommerce/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.




All the above solutions were tried with no success. In the meantime, I'm going to try to upload the files again, because during the original upload the server kept reseting the port, so I'm not 100% certain that all the files were successfully transfered.

Thanks for any help on this.

re-uploaded all the files to a different directory and still get the same error. Still updates the table correctly, so I know it's not a database issue or db connectivity issue. Even updated the files with Cute FTP instead of WS_FTP Pro and still no joy.

I don't know if this makes a difference, but the server I'm trying to set this up on is a Sun Colbalt server and supports both php and mySQL (as well as ASP). The tables aren't an issue. I have them installed and good to go and checked them with phpMyAdmin (which installed on same server with no issues whatsoever). This should be so much easier than this.... *sighs. I'm so frustrated I want to find the closest sledgehammer and....

I know it is an obvious question, and I am sure that you already went over it, but did you double check your address to make sure it resides at:

/home/sites/site40/web/testcarts/oscommerce/catalog/includes/


I am assuming that is the absolute path...

Code: [ Select ]
define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://designsofmontage.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
 define('HTTPS_SERVER', ' https://www03.powweb.com:11934 '); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
 define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?
 define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/wholesale/catalog/'); // absolute path required
  1. define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://designsofmontage.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
  2.  define('HTTPS_SERVER', ' https://www03.powweb.com:11934 '); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
  3.  define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?
  4.  define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/wholesale/catalog/'); // absolute path required


That is from my configure.php file, I didn't use the /www/ absolute path, but rather the absolute path from /htdocs. So if /home/sties/site40/web is included in that DIR_WS_CATALOG I might try taking it out.

Not sure b_heyer. Was involved in another work issue and not certain where your code file is located. I'll look for it in a moment, but am going to try installing this where I know it should work. I'll update you when I can.

Uploaded on the same server I have the Boasting Rights forum with phpMyadmin working and still no joy. Got all the table files added to the database (same as prior) but same error when it comes to configuring the proggie. This should be such a no-brainer. I'm so ticked....
*sighs.

The file is there though right?
That code was from configure.php, let me see what you have in there (I know this doesn't make much sense because it can't find configure.php....)

Thanks for your time and effort b_heyer. I needed to get about 5 hours sleep and when I woke up at 3 AM this morning, I finally realized that I set the permissions correctly on one of the configuration files, but didn't set it on the other one. I have it working now at both locations. Now I'm just laughing and kicking myself for being a dunce. Thanks.
