It looks like the version details have been removed from my application_top.php file. Can anyone tell which version it is from the following?

That's not where the version is defined. See page one for instructions.

Be sure you have the Search Engine Friendly option in admin->Configuration->My Store turned off. If it is, then you've most likely made a mistake in the changes.

I can't get into my admin now, I get a 500 Internal Server Error.  I reverted all the files back to what they were before I revised them.  I still get the " Error!  Unable to determine the page link!"

There were several queries I had to run:

ALTER TABLE whos_online MODIFY COLUMN last_page_url VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL;

ALTER TABLE customers MODIFY COLUMN customers_default_address_id INTEGER;

ALTER TABLE customers_basket MODIFY COLUMN final_price DECIMAL(15,4);


I suppose the problem must lie there, though I wouldn't know how to identify it, or correct it if I could.

Internal Server errors can be caused by a number of things. You should ask your host to take a look.

The question of what version a shop is has been getting asked a lot lately. This is meant to give a quick way to check it.

- First look in includes/application_top.php and find this line
// define the project version
Under that will be a line that starts with define('PROJECT_VERSION'.  These are the main choices:

define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce 2.2-MS1'); //released prior to July/2003
define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce 2.2-CVS'); //released between the above/below dates
define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce 2.2-MS2'); //released after July/2003
define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 RC1'); //released March/2007
define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce 3.xxx'); //not released for general use

The versions before MS2 are not compatible with MS2, which is the main version is use. Between MS2 and RC1, there were two patch updates. There isn't a version number for those patches (in the files) so you have to compare file content to see if they are installed. First, download the patches from here. Extract the contents and compare a few of the files with those in your shop. If your shop has them installed, then you probably have the latest MS2 version.

Jack

Thank you very much!

My host made some progress, but now we can't get past the first page of the catalog.  For instance, this address, http://www.greattradingpath.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=22 should be taking us to the Drums section, but all we get to is the first page of the catalog.  My host suggested I check back over here and ask for help:

Make sure that the variable cPath is saved from page to page, which it doesn't seem to be doing.  Shouldn't be a big fix.

Hello:

I recently transfered a client using osCommerce 2.2-MS2 to a new server running
PHP as CGI
PHP version 5.2.8
MySQL version 5.0.67-community

we were able to get the site to display, but cannot gain access to admin.  the error showing is:

Fatal error: Cannot re-assign $this in /home/natalie/public_html/admin/includes/classes/upload.php on line 31

I downloaded the patches for 2.2MS2 here and will do a file to file comparison.  I'm not a programmer and have not worked with osCommerce in a long time.

Does anyone have a clue what I should be looking for?  Your assistance is much appreciated.

How does this relate to the version of the shop?

I am trying to upgrade a customer site and I have run into the following regarding version:

The includes/application_top.php file has this about the version:

// define the project version
include('includes/version.php');

I have had a look at the version.php file and it has this line:

// define the project version
define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'CRE Loaded v6.2 B2B');
define('PROJECT_PATCH', '13');

I am pretty sure this version is extremely old. Can anyone tell me if upgrading from this version is a lot of effort?
Should I start fresh?

Does the newer version allow me greater control over styling? What other benefits would prompt me to require an upgrade?

Thanks in advance,
Eric

That's a CRE shop, which is different than an oscommerce shop (although they are based on the same code). So the version numbers mentioned in this thread won't apply to it. CRE started a new policy where you have to pay to use it so, I would think, the upgrades are free. But you would need to ask in the CRE forums to find that out.

ok so OSCommerce doesn't even tell you which version it is? ummmmm, why would they hide that? Seems to me it would be useful information and could (SHOULD) be in the footer somewhere.

It isn't that the version is being hidden. The main version number is listed. But patches were released to fix various problems and those patches didn't provide a new version number. It was just an oversight, I guess, in the patch releases.

It only works on some servers and then doesn't provide very SEO friendly url's so it should never be used.

If you have an MS1 shop, I wouldn't even consider upgrading to RC2. If you have an MS2 shop, the upgrade can be very difficult and probably not worth it but the database can be used.
Jack

Hello.

I have version MS2.
Why do you say the upgrade is probably not worth it, because it is very difficult?

I have many customised contributions so a clean install isn't practical.

If one doesn't upgrade from MS2 to a newer version then aren't there security concerns?
