    website gone funny!

    Two quick guesses: 1. The disk partition containing /var/tmp is full. Fix by deleting some older files. 2. The directory /var/tmp had its file permissions change. Either change the permissions back or change to a new directory. In either case, /var/tmp is outside the osCommerce directory structure, so you would probably need help from your host. This seems more of a system administration thing than an osCommerce thing. If you administer this server yourself, on the Linux command line, try running df -k ls -ld /var/tmp The results of one of those two commands might be informative. Your error_log and access_ssl_log.processed are huge. Consider downloading and truncating them. If you have log rotation set up, perhaps run it manually.

    website gone funny!

    when I open my interface, it says there is an error, and the usual list of modifications to orders, and new customers just joined is no more! I haven't changed anything, and it was okay this morning. Have I been hacked? I'm on this Plesk obsidian server and I don't have a clue what I'm doing anymore. Yes I do need a new website, but just been too busy and keep putting it off. Any ideas? thank you
  6. Hi, how do I check if the email of the new user is real ? I got every daysome fake users.

    Correct. You have illustrated why osCommerce is on its knees; Businesses who appear as if by magic only when they need help/advice. I have just looked back through your posts and there is not a single one where you take the time to help anyone or give advice etc, but you are quite happy to have your business subsidised by other businesses here. If you don't give, you don't get. One hand washes the other etc. Classy. Go right ahead. Don't be surprised if that backfires on you.

    Paypal Express characters strangers

    Hi peterpil19m, we have made many modifications in Oscommerce 2.3 and we do not dare to update. They are just the strange characters of Paypal, I could pay up to € 100 if someone can help me.

    @Gary Tayman Can you please tell us *which* USPS module you downloaded? A quick search of the apps site showed over a dozen USPS modules, some going back as far as 16-17 years old. First, while I believe you that "it tells me I have the latest", can you please tell us exactly what version number that is? Second, IF you are using the Phoenix version of osC, I encourage you to join the Phoenix club here in the forum. There is a list of certified developers you can contact. If you are NOT using the Phoenix version of osC, as difficult as this is going to sound, I encourage you to start over with Phoenix. The last 'official' release of osC was in 2017, it is not responsive (necessary these days for people with mobile devices), and will crash when your host upgrades the version of PHP. Which is why I asked which USPS module did you download. In earlier versions of osC, the only way to add features was to 'hack the core code.' The development of Phoenix has focused on making it possible to have modules that drop into place, and you do NOT hack the core code. This way, as Phoenix continues to develop, you can upgrade your store in-place, without having to remember what bits of code you hacked. Who specifically did you send emails to? This is open-source software. There is no mother company offering (selling) technical support. Any of the developers here (or elsewhere, for that matter) are all independent. I acknowledge that there is not proper documentation for osC (documentations is being developed for Phoenix. Ask nicely, and I'll tell you where it is). I acknowledge that the apps marketplace is a horrible mess. Most of the old apps have not been updated to run with the current Phoenix software (the more popular apps *are* being maintained and updated for Phoenix). I acknowledge that it's not easy for a non-technical person to install, configure, and maintain a complicated piece of software. That's what we have 'experts' for. But, their time, experience, and expertise typically isn't free. Lastly, all of the people answering questions here are volunteering their time. I've just spent far too much time trying to answer your rant than it probably deserved ... <shaking head> You want a shopping cart. Fine. There are plenty out there. How much do you want to spend? As I've taught my kids from an early age, if you want something, there are 3 options: * Pay someone to do it, or * Do it yourself (and this includes getting the tools and learning how to do it), or * Do without (or, I guess you could cry to the world claiming that life isn't fair ...)

    Okay, I guess I'm done. I found an instruction sheet within the ZIP file. I swear it's like programming an Apollo space module! Pages and pages and pages of code! Holy cow! Many years ago I was given a web space through my Sams Club Business Membership. I looked at the website; most if it was rather cheesy but the online shopping was great! So I started an online store. It calculated UPS or USPS shipping, all was wonderful. Then one day I was informed that Sams would no longer be supporting this., So I started looking for other sites and other options. I first tried Magento, and since I was learning it I ordered the book -- got the book, but it was for an older version and most of it had changed dramatically. Tried and gave up. Then I went to OS-Commerce. It was easy and straightforward, but one problem -- shipping. it was a major bugaboo from the start. Again I ask, as I have asked over and over and over, how do you run an online store without shipping? I asked on the forum, and got nothing but snarky remarks and belittlement. No answers. Can't run a store without shipping. But then, I found the Sams Club site got moved to Web.com and was still active. So what to do? ABANDON OS-Commerce with it no shipping mess and simply go back to the original site. A couple years later the Web.com site began to act up -- customers would get errors, just plain unreliable, and Web.com said it's because the software is old. Well, back to OS-Commerce. Surely they would not be so insane as to not have a viable shipping option after all this time, but I guessed wrong. Looks like they ARE that insane, or at least it appears such due to the lack of assistance I've been getting. Yes, I've perused the site for instructions, and yes, I've sent e-mails directly with no responses, and yes, I have tried, over and over and over again. This was one last ditch effort to get help, and I guess there Is no help to be had. Phooey! The problem is that I don't get that many orders anyway. It doesn't justify the million dollars in would take to get someone's attention. So I suppose I'll keep it as it is, and deny orders that exceed the shipping cost provided by the stupid table rate. Sorry if I sound like I'm getting an attitude, but enough is enough. I'll go to the computer magazines, tell them my horrible experience with OS-Commerce, and see if they have other options.

    First query should be addressed to the module writer - they should provide install instructions specific to their module. If you don't know what you're doing, it's best to hire a developer to do it for you. If you wish to DIY, be prepared to learn by googling and bear in mind that those that answer your posts here are giving you time by the kindness of their hearts. Usually, after downloading a zip, you unzip the folder. Then, using FTP software (e.g. Filezilla), upload to your server, maintaining the same file structure. Then install the module in admin. BTW, if you're using oscommerce software that is 9 years old, you should consider upgrading to the latest CE Phoenix. There are professional developers here that would do that if paid - nobody can do it otherwise.

    I've done exactly that. It's not there. I DL'ed the USPS Module. I have it on my computer, download files, as a RAR.ZIP file. I suppose the next step is to upload this, or open it and upload the files, to some folder in my OS-Commerce section of my website. Since my server is Hostmonster, I checked with them, and they uploaded in in the right place for me, or so they say. But it's not there. They sent me here. Now seriously -- is there a step-by step procedure for grabbing a module, putting it on my site, and installing it? There must be thousands and thousands of users who have done this. It shouldn't be hard. But HOW DO I DO THIS?

    If you want your shipping costs to be different by geographic region (zone), use zone shipping. That comes with the latest community edition release. You might try joining the Phoenix Club for more help with the community edition. In terms of installing modules, you do that at admin > Modules > Shipping. Click the Install button to see a list of available modules. Note that you have to upload the files first if it's not one of the ones that come with core.

    HELP HELP! I don't have a PhD in computer programming, and hopefully I would think you don't need one to do the simplest of tasks. But months have turned into years, and I'm STILL having trouble getting OS=COMMERCE to work properly for me. I checked -- I first signed in back in 2011 -- NINE YEARS. HOW DO I FIX THIS???? Here's the issue: Everything about OS-COMMERCE has been wonderful and easy to use. Except shipping. It has been HORRIBLE! How in the Sam Hill does anyone run an online store without shipping? Yet here I am, out in the cold. Am I the only person in the entire world who is having this problem? Do I need to pay somebody to install something for me? I really need help. I have a grand total of two choices, flat rate and table rate. I've been using the table rate, and it sorta kinda works for some shipments, but when it charges $6 to ship auto parts to Switzerland there's a real problem, and I'm tired of e-mailing customers, asking for more money because OS-Commerce can't get it right. Solution: install another shipping module. HOW? I've bumbled around the internet and found the addon page, located a USPS Module and downloaded it. It's in an RAR ZIP file. Now what? Since OS-Commerce is installed on my Hostmonster website, I called them. Couldn't get through, but eventually got chat help. After quite awhile, he told me the module has been uploaded to the proper OS-Commerce folder. I don't see it anywhere within the Admin site. They told me to contact OS-Commerce; you will install it for me. Uh, here I am. Please please please please please please tell me what I need to do, besides chuck this whole thing and go to Magento or something else. Any help here please? Seriously, it has been NINE years, An e-commerce sire without shipping is like a car without wheels. HOW DO I DO THIS? Thanks.
  17. @charcad The add-on you installed has not been updated for Phoenix. You can: * Contact the developer that wrote the add-on, and ask when they will update it, or * Hire a developer to update the add-on for you, or * Update the add-on yourself. Then, you can contribute it back to the community. HTH Malcolm
  18. I have followed the install for the featured products addon database table is their all files have been updated and I still have no screen which lets me add a featured product. only screen that shows how many featured products I have which is zero because I have no user interface to add one. What am I missing. Also it tells me to add the following code to filenames.php and that file does not exist define('FILENAME_FEATURED', 'featured.php'); define('FILENAME_FEATURED_BOX', 'featured.php'); define('FILENAME_FEATURED_PRODUCTS', 'featured_products.php'); It aslo says to add code to includes application_top after tep_expire_specials and that line of code does not exist in the file I am using the latest responsive version of Phoenix CE What am I missing and where is filenames.php

    Shipping problems

    Actually a USPS module would work, as the rates are close to UPS domestically, and it's what my supplier uses to drop ship internationally. So now I'll have to search and find the addons area, and see how complicated it is to install -- hopefully easy. Thanks.

    Discount shippers

    Thanks for getting back with me. For whatever reason I'm not getting notifications of responses -- have to keep checking in. Yes, I've checked the notify switch at the bottom. Oh well. Actually, Shipstation is wonderful, now that I'm getting used to it, but there's no channel to OS-COMMERCE. BUT -- in my case, just about everything n the online store is drop shipped, meaning someone else does the packing, so it's better that I keep it separate anyway. Thanks again!
  21. Great thing, used over 15 years the old one 😉 Is it possible to place the information formatted , more "eye-friendly",may be centered or without/different frames ? Here is what i had so far And the discount may be in RED ?

    GETTING STARTED WITH OSCOMMERCE

    @micheleangle While you didn't state if you downloaded the 'official' osC v2.3.4.1, or the Community Edition, both are at End of Life. The 'official' version is not responsive (changes the display of smaller screens), and will crash as hosts upgrade the version of PHP running on their servers. Also, no further development is being done on it. The Community Edition is in continued development. The current version is called Phoenix. I would suggest you join the Phoenix club here in the forum, and you can approach any of the certified developers to assist you in designing and building your shop. Malcolm
  24. Anybody else getting double rates for the same service from the UPS XML (advanced) module? see screen shot below. It started only today. nothing was changed. It was all working Friday.

    GETTING STARTED WITH OSCOMMERCE

    I downloaded oscommerce v2.3.4.1 a few years ago and haven’t had time to work on the website. I can’t readily figure out how to change color in box headings. It appears that I have to download Phoenix??? I don’t have time to try and figure things out at this time, so will hire someone. What do you recommend that I include for addons & what versions? I definitely want addons that address: SEO, shipping estimates, customer login after they look at their cart and know shipping and taxes, quantity discounts – Any other recommendations? Thanks!
  26. Glad you're having fun with Phoenix!
